As a referee, my favorite mix is: no weapons at all.

As a player, I know that without a token defense, the referee will allow pirates to descend upon me like a pack of rabid hyenas. I'd be stupid not to stick a laser on that puppy.

As a pragmatist, I know that the cost of defenses are small potatoes compared to the cost of the ship, so a nice LMS x 2 mix would do nicely.

As a ship design system designer, I suspect that six beam lasers is beyond the capacity of the Type A power plant, and so I would figure out the likely limit and then build as closely to the limits as possible.

As a player of chaotic-good alignment (?), I would jam six missile launchers in there. Bring them on. I am ready.
