You can circumvent the weapon energy drop with DEM + technican doffs. But well. Let's not be picky. Yes his numbers were "too high" but it was more about the point he made. And I'm also fairly sure, he was not talking about single escort attack, because of the "hundreds bolts" line.
I somewhat understand his frustration, no reason to pick on him. Truth his, a lot of people that say "galaxy is fine" never took it in pvp and such. And low turn rate should have a proper off-set somewhere else, to make the ship "balanced" as much as I loathe the word. LEt's not forget the ship with all its additions and costumes is one of the most expensive ships in game.
