I got you lad
Paragon, quad Tachyon lances. Hardened shields and optics hullmod. Throw some burst PD lasers on the small beam slots.
You've just won the game. This ship has the longest range in the game for direct damage and instakills almost every ship up to cruisers. Most cruisers/carriers will die in 2. Will also dumpster every capital ship except another paragon.
If you've got some other ships with Gauss guns for hard flux, it becomes even more overpowered.
I can't go back to the other ships anymore, this setup is too strong by comparison.
