Their T1 is rather short ranged and only does its full damage at point blank/melee distance.So uh. The tier 4's super cannon is cool but 10 damage standard attack? Uh, thats weaker than their tier 1. This one doesn't even have a global effect like most other tier 4s. In the state I am seeing it is very weak for a t4.
Also don't forget multiple damage channels benefit from flanking far better than single damage channels because each damage channel is boosted separately. This was the case back in AoW3 and from what I've tested with Syndicate Psynumbra units (w/ damage conversion) and units buffed by the Heritor Ark's damage boost, it still seems to be the case in Planetfall.We can't see its range, aoeness or if it has any other modifiers though. It might just be a backup for when you can't use the Omni-Beam.
I'll have to double test though, maybe the devs have changed how flanking damage works.
