Has anyone tried Thermal ii and iii insta swords on the mini event 40's?   I have Aurora iii Thermal ii insta swords that can handle the 37's but not quite the 40's.  I used the ship calc to see what dps difference there is and it looks like a thermal ii thermal iii sword would be like a 106 dps vs my auroras 94.  Before I spend cash on a bp that doesn't get me any further I was hoping someone had tried them already.

Thanks I advance

    Range on thermal beam is too low.  3000 m vs 3250 m on Aurora and 3400 m on Impulse.  Even with Optics 5 you will take more damage with thermal even if you can dish out more.  Impulse is the way to go.

    even with Impulse beams the 40s will be a handful use what you have and use a cargo fleet to collect the excess res as you will need it to keep hitting the 37s

    Follow up: Thanks for the ideas guys. Impulse hasn't been offered in the time I have been playing. Repeating Polaron is above my current tech level. Echo ii won't do it fast enough. Echo iii is out of reach currently. Thermal iii and thermal ii DO NOT pack enough punch. The Demon fleet closes in too fast even with a rear strafing click. they can and will kill them with a focus fire command but that defeats my purpose. IF I wanted to fly one fleet at a time I would take out my vector vens and hit 45's one at a time. I was looking for insta quantity not rep time quality. Glad rancs proved to be answer. In the end I banked my carrier and some bombers.
