targets up to 8 enemies in a 10km sphere, and shoots 6 photon torpedoes each at them doing 1,318 kinetic damage per torpedo. its boosted by photon torpedoes as well as anything that boosts kinetic damage
Once every 4 mins (on demand/Clickable skill), it will toss out around 40'ish (depending on current enemy count within 10 km of you) Photon Torps in a 360 degree angle, around your ship, hitting all targets.
Works extremely well in Fleet base defence, KA, Infected as well as other situation where you are faced with numerous enemies.
When combined with BFaW or Cannon Scatter Volley, as well as the point defence turret from the Thunderchild, it turns into a ship removal console.
Downside, as already mentioned, it is only mountable on Escort carrier variants.
It's rather smashing when you go for massive AOE. CSV, TS, phaser point defense and photon point defense.... oh my! Add in APB as well and you've got screenwipe on your hands in fleet actions and what not.
