I have to agree with this, having used the Romulan torps extensively for a while now on both my MVAE and Chell Grett Warship, alongside DHC's. But there is another reason I use them that has not been touched on here...they are target-able. My convoluted and slightly insane form of logic tells me that if I let a string of these off the chain then the enemy will target them and not me. And believe it or not it works most of the time. A lot of people will say that target-able torpedoes are about as useful as teats on a nun, but I've found them very useful as a distraction.
Just my two cents, for what it's worth.
