For the same reason you don't run FAW when BO will do. The problem is not enough slots that you can USE with a cannon build. Beam builds are rather pathetic for firepower. This is the main benefit the Torkhat has over K'tinga right now: Can run CSV **AND** CRF and choose which they need based on the situation.

Because of the lopsided way cannon skills are stacked compared to beam skills, you cannot get nearly as much use from cannons on a battlecruiser, as far as skills go. This is why they changed the boff layout on the torkhat, because it is a ship intended for cannons, but unable to use more than 1 boff skill that helps cannons.

having a cannon skill grab bag is not very optimized. and you dont need more then the LT station with the cannons, thanks to 2 AtB with tech doffs, you can use which ever cannon skill you like at its global, as if you had 2 copies of it. you would be surprised how much extra damage DEM 3 adds, with all your tac buffs running and CRF1 DEM3 will deal an extra 250-750 damage a shot. DEM's cooldown is at its global as well thanks to 2 AtB.

this build is not wanting for damage, and you can swap boffs as needed for CRF and CSV
