Spinal weapons are by their EP input with no modification.

But there IS no meson gun turret. What is the proper multiplier for meson bay EP damage?

Non-nuclear missiles inflict two points times their factor; nuclear missiles inflict 100 points times their factor; meson guns inflict 20 points times their factor. Spinal mount weapons inflict their full energy point requirements. For example, a particle accelerator bay with a factor of 8 would inflict 40 energy points each time it hits and penetrates. If the target ship's black globe is operating at a flicker rate of 10%, the ship's capacitors would absorb 4 energy points.
