Input wanted: Compact Vehicle Weapon Laser

#1
I have been considering building a fairly compact fighter style aircraft and/or spacecraft based on a laser system. To that end, I set out to build the most compact and energy efficient laser system I could. It needed to have enough alpha damage to at least one shot a metal beam, be as space compact as possible and have as little power draw as possible. The following is the design I came up with and I wonder if anyone has any ideas how to tweak it to make it better. I would like to keep the size as close to 3x3x14 (Its current size) as possible and it's power as close to 2000 as possible.

Specs:

Type: 3Q
AP: 88.9
Full Charge Alpha: 2609
Pulse Damage: ~560
Power Draw: ~1800

Be informed that lasers without VERY long optics are quite inaccurate, especially for a spacecraft which will need to shoot in excess of 500m minimum.

Also, unless you will be against HA, you don't need more than 30 AP, since lasers ignore armor stacking.
