If you can get 50 power to them via skills and/or gear they do thier rated damage.
you are still losing great amounts of dps with turrets at 50 weapon power (hell, you would lose high amounts with turrets at 100)

With torps aft, you have to spin or do passing runs, limiting the damage your forward arc weapons are doing, particularly the 45 degree dual cannons.
if you are not getting close to stuff in stfs, you are doing something wrong. and if you are hit with a high yield torp in the Vesta, while doing that, you are doing something extremely wrong
