added a new link to the op, might be that my host is not available abroad. I use ACT with the 2012 plugin from hilbert guide (I tested the old 1.07 plugin - which I dunno where you can get anymore, I still have it on my pc, it gave 9,8k dps, and even tho I didnt have the old combatlogparser, in my experience it would not have shown dps beow 8k -and there is a fat chance it might have shown higher-)

Starbase 234 is the most objective target I can think of because I can attack it solo and I am only allowed a fixed amount of time against the starbase. This means whatever dps number the parser reports is dealt solely by my ship. There is no other ship to artificially boost my dps.
well, I parse in stfs just because I play them, and I have parsed them forever, so I have a real good comparison of experience. and yeah, a team does increase the dps. the avg difference I get is at most 2k dps from pug to pug (tho in a pug where I deal 8k dps or lower I either screwed up rly, or they are just plain bad)

My Vesta can only manage 4.3k to 4.4k dps in my tests, so I still have a lot of difficulty believing your Aux2Bat Beam Array Vesta can double my dps.
well. I might also add, that I have experience in operating this build, and it can count for a lot too (I have seen ppl deal 3k dps in an escort, that easily should have jumped the 10k barrier with the gear it had)

also the reason I asked before what you consider a good dps from an escort is, that you said that my dhc build cannot deal more than 4k (I think, dont make me look back). now if you think about it, my dhc build is like an escort, lacking a front dhc (more energy to remain to the others tho) and gaining a hangar. now if you believe that an escort can deal 10k dps (well I have seen them deal 14k so...) then there is no way that my dhc build should not deal well above 4k (just by plain comparison of the equipment available).
so you might use different parsers, and have different numbers to compare, and that is why you cant "imagine" (tho that is a lack of imagination, I can imagine anything) that much dps (as said above, this is a number for act pvp plugin)
