The torpedo spam from regular fighters has just as much (negligible) shield bleed as the Jem fighters. Since DEM applies its bonus damage on each hit, it's only worth something when you have a lot of hits, e.g. cannons on rapid fire. The fighters have a pulse cannon, firing one single shot with very low rate of fire. If you want shield-penetrating damage from your pets, Scorpions put their target into a permanent state of being on fire. It stacks quickly.

Jem fighters are quite literally pointless in both PVE and PVP.

Which is weird because the NPC Jem fighters have a standard cannon, quantum torpedo, and rapid fire. That would have been fine. Then add a turret and DEM for the advanced version.
