Its not the absolute best torpedo launcher for all situations but it does respectable damage and has many useful properties.
1) extremely fast projectile speed means you can actually shoot the target's hull instead of having to worry that shields will come back up before it gets there
2) radiation damage-over-time, similar to plasma fire damage-over-time but a little stronger and (possilbly) less resistable
3) secondary (delayed) kinetic damage explosion, so if the first kill and DoT didnt do the job, the delayed boom might
Good all-around torp
