My TAC flies a Surveillance Vesta. I have the other two as well but I seem to be more effective with the Science variant. I mounted one Transphasic Mine Launcher Mk XII [Dmg]x3 aft. I did not mount any consoles which improve mine damage. The other two aft weapons are turrets. I wanted a stinger or, more often, a quick shield to make my escape behind. With Dispersal Pattern Beta, I can sometimes make a bombing run as well. The hull is kinda light, but the shields are decent enough to make a firing pass or two. This setup works well on the Recon and Engineer variants but like I said, I've had more success with the Science variant.
