I'm currently a Tactical Commander (Escort) with a...

Front:

Plasma Torpedo Launcher
2 x Heavy Plasma Dual Cannons.

Back:

2 x Plasma Mines distributors on the back.

I loooooooove Plasma!

Hello mate. First off since your a tac officer I would focus more on cannons than your current line-up of plasma-based weaponry. Plasma does decent damage plus the added dot (damage over time ability) but in pvp or large scale pve its next to worthless. Especially since tac ships are so fragile, so swap out for cannons and some photon launchers. Or, if you're adamant about having some form of plasma weapon go for cannons and then plasma torps.

I can't be sure, but I don't think he read your post, OP.

You're setup is fine afaik. I ran an Olso with something similar, Plasma Dual Cannons (not heavies, the dps suffers) with a plasma launcher in front, and in back i had 2 plasma turrets. 360 degree arc helps with escorts a lot.

I wouldn't swap my Plasma Cannons for the world!

Sometimes I put Plasma Turrets on the back, but I do alot of damage with the mines too - specially with my skills and maybe I'm not getting that extra few dps out of my setup Ibut 'm having alot of fun and making the galaxy a much greener place, oh yes!

Seriously people, go green and save the universe!
