The stats say: 295xl, 8mlas, AMS: Win/Loss 8/2. K/D 13/4, Damage 5,380 275std, 8mlas: Win/Loss 5/5. K/D 18/5, Damage 5,450 275std, 6mlas, BAP: Win/Loss 7/3. K/D 12/5, Damage 4,860 My thoughts: 295xl, 8mlas is the original build used by me almost exclusively for 1000+ battles, its HOT but manageable, you are fast enough and deal enough damage in a short period of time to survive. You need to use it as a light-support harassing the enemy trying to stay out of there fire line (when that fails you wiggle). 280 STD, 8mlas gives you the STD engine survivability that gives you the confidence to keep pushing even if you got a exposed side torso, but I found that its EXTREMELY HOT thanks to the lack of heatsinks. It will still perform and give you damage numbers but you will spend allot more time waiting for the temp meter to go down, not able to fire when the its needed. I dont recommend this build to anyone at-least until you got all the efficiency's replace 2 lasers with heatsinks. 275 STD, 6mlas, BAP. Less heatproduction, increased sustainable DPS and gives you a MUCH better heatmanagement. STD engine did save me (still allowing me to do damage 3 or 4 times over all this testing). Disclaimer for the STD280 test is that I used STD275 because I did not want to spend c-bills on something im not going to use. I did the 295xl tests first and did not think to record the test until the STD engine runs. And even then the first 2 didn't work so only screens on them.
