Primary Weapons

a very useful suggestion, i think, would be to add a tooltip for primary weapon stats. are they <=> the standard mk1 weapons of the same tier?

Could you explain this a little bit?

well- when you go to the equip screen, all ships come with a default primary weapon such as a beam on a heavy- but there is no way to compare it to the standard laser beam of the same tier mk1 weapon. so it begs the question 'should i get a mk1 laser on a heavy asap or should we wait until we can afford or unlock higher versions. in particular for higher tier ships since the use of weapon mods is denied until a weapon is equipped other than the default.

Good question. I will try to get an usefull answer.
