No, Pengs do not get boosted by any torp buffs.

Pengs do great substained damage but you probably won't kill someone by yourself using only those torpedoes.
Even on a 45 sec cd, HE completly negates a full pengs boat.

See my damage / kill ratio -> http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/988802PENGPENG.jpg

No it doesn't. You need two versions of HE, and that still leaves you with a 15 second window of not having HE up. Not only that, but I'm almost certain that the Peng debuff isn't countered by the HE healing ticks, only the initial application of HE. The Peng debuff lasts 12 seconds before the secondary explosion, and you're applying a new debuff every ~3 seconds. Even a ship with a single Peng can't be countered every time.

That said, there are ways to mitigate the damage of the secondary explosions. high kinetic resistance should do the trick. Polarize Hull, Aux to ID, Armor. Staying 3+ km away from allied ships reduces the AoE damage. Lots of ways to reduce Peng pain. People will figure this stuff out eventually.

Sorry to be off subject, but I thought FAW was fixed, if it wasn't then tons of people would still be using it.... I dont see it very often, and mine spam has made a return so obviously faw is out of play.. Just curious?

FAW no longer has near 100% accuracy, but it still hits way too much and on too many targets. Including cloaked ships.

I killed a Gal-R in kerrat with 10 Pengs and an MVAE with 6. I was getting 27K crits on alpha strikes. APA, APB3, GDF, FOMM, TT, GW. Run 3 Warhead Yield chambers in my tac consoles. I use CTBM in the rear with Tric mine. I run EPtA1 and 2, EPtE 1, ET, JS. I use ET for healing, I use JS to escape.

And in a CnH I was 3rd on the KDF side in Damage and 1st or 2nd in kills

I run 4 pengs

With Hargh'pengs now having a 10 second global cool-down added with the recent patch, does this make a Hargh'peng boat effectively nonviable??? Is it time to start crafting Beam-Arrays for my Intrepid retrofit Hargh'peng carrier???

Yep. If you get 2, you can fire one off every 10 seconds for maximum efficiency.
