So, first of all, the weapon info displayed in the infocard seems quite wrong both in relation to what the ship shoots (mostly lasers) and to what the dev exe shows for weapon info. "Weapon:1" has 8 forward shooting banks (and yes there are 8 forward shooting lasers: three at the top of which one is in the nose, two further down, two more further, down and one at the bottom). The two plasma gun ports would have to do amazing damage to keep with those, never mind outdo them on a 2:1 dps ratio as the infocard says.
The second bug seems to be that the Progenitor likes to position itself sideways when engaging a single target, like the Akkan does. But this is very wrong for the Progenitor because only 3 lasers and one plasma can shoot on each side. The problem seems to come from the second half of the weapon debug info which show only 6.3 dps forward and 22.0 to the side. This is clearly wrong and not calculated from the other weapon info.
I'd hate to tell you this, but the weapon points say absolutely nothing about the damage. They are for visual effect only. The side guns do a lot more damage, its not a mistake. So the sideways firing is intended.
