The Precursor RT was using ~115 continuous damage with 5 AP. Sounds like this may be an out of date target?
It disables the offensive turret when missiles are close.

4Q and more LAMS heads sounds like a smarter approach?

The master plan had a multipurpose frag CIWIS that I have been playing with but I ran out of time and RP.

That didn't look like a fully powered continuous LAMS in the fight against the Beehive, if it were there's a good chance none of the missiles from the first salvo in the first fight would've connected.

Saw you have at least one storage cavity, when it's filled the laser reports much more damage than what it'll actually do(in most cases).
The simplest rule of thumb: a continuous laser has 50 DPS / laser pump and does damage 40 times/second.
To have 115 sustained base damage you need 115 x 40 = 4600 DPS, that's 4600 / 50 = 92 pumps(a 23 block long cavity line).

That said, I think 4Q is much more practical now that 6 block thumper missiles have 300 HP and CRAM shells 3000+.
A massively oversized continuous would only be useful against Omega Nightmare levels of spam.

Graviton rams are pretty much useless, the only thing making them do something is the inertial fuse bug.
Since that scales with the square of the velocity use 18mm 3000m/s+ shells for making Bulwarks disappear.
Hmm, thanks for these tips. I designed the whole ship around the continuous lasers target output, didn't think I screwed that up. (I reported a bug with damage displayed at low game speeds and lost range) Will have to double check the laser system part counts vs your guide when at my PC.
I think I left room for Q switches also so will have to run some trials. :-)

@Varien101 my theory re the 2 LAMS heads was that the missiles should be coming from predominantly one side at a time (turret returns to centre). And yep dual role CIWIS was planned as a small supplementary thing to the LAMS not a replacement.
