One of the things about tetryon is you can get the deshielding affect without using any damage consoles, since the proc payoff is keyed to acc/crth instead of damage. So you can load up a torp boat with kinetic consoles and use the tets for deshielding only. My only real gripe about tet is that they do not work as well as they should. This is because they have a fixed amount and are not keyed to target shield percentage. So they are either OP against small things or (more often) way underpowered against stuff with 6k shields.
Conversely antiproton is keyed to percentage of damage, so maxing out consoles maxes out the proc too.
I'm planning to switch my fed escort over to AP, once I clear some other projects. My cruiser will keep the tet beams for the foreseeable future.
