FT-Number crunching required (HELP)

Subject: FT-Number crunching required (HELP)

A idea for a x-ray
laser warhead for a MT missile. The MT missile has a x-ray laser
that on reaching attack range, detonates, sending several x-ray laser
at the target, in a cone pattern to increase the chances of a hit. When
using them, roll a 1D6 (not sure about having some modifiers for ECM and
such), that is the number of beams on target. Each beam is a K3 (or 2?),
dammage is done as such.

 I posted the above, but nobody said anything. Having given it some
I`ve decided it wouldn`t be as unbalancing as I first thought, if
to SML`s. A SML can do between 6 and 36 DP, the MT laser warhead can do
between 3 and 36 DP. The difference comes from the PDS, and the fact the
missiles are more vulnerable to interception than SML`s. What I`m
asking, is
that is there a number cruncher out there that can compair the
chances/dammage potential of these two missiles against PDS? (please?,
number crunching stopped at school <G>). I know that I`m not being very
clear here, but what I`m after is compairing the chances of the 2
systems to get through the PDS, and the dammage potential afterwards
(ie- a
SML with 6 missiles, can lose 1 to PDS, and still do 5D6 DP, but a MT
missile can either do the dammage, or non vs the PDS).

Not being deliberatly dumb, just difficult for me to explain.
