Beams are still BS(you know exactly what I mean)

Riddle me this.
The yellowed arcs should have a higher crit rating than cannons, and with the overlapping effect, a combined assault from beam overload should strip shields unquestionably in any encounter. In the hands of a Tac Officer, such a fitted cruiser should be able to contend with a tac officer in an escort, provided they can fly a disciplined broadside.
Is it the ideal solution? Probably not, but it is a sensible one as far as "concentrating" the firepower of beams, go. As far as dual beams go, however, I think maybe the arc could be narrowed slightly in exchange for a significant damage increase to let them at LEAST compare to DCs (not necessarily DHC's).
Probably not the solution y'all were looking for, but providing one is sure better than arguing over one. At least with more ideas in the box, you might be able to construct something out of sensible components, rather than trying to build a firearm entirely out of wood.
