I always found it amusing doing that on Elite and watching these old school PoS D7s launching these semi-sentient death machines at me. First time it happened I was surprised, but after the 3rd or 4th one (seems every bloody D7 shoots one!!) it was just an "oh look, incoming bio-neural".
Do it on elite with 5 players, and enjoy the massive fleet of D7s with their wall of bio-neurals. Ever seen 40 bio-neurals all launched at once? Do it on elite, and kill all but one comet shard. You will be made aware of the awesome horror that particular scenario entails.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
