Taking out sensors and fire control units seems reasonable.  Does
let you actually sink a BB with something like a Phalanx gun?  Seems
funky if it does.  This is what I mean by not using a PDAF/ADAF to apply
normal hull damage as a main weapon.  Maybe if the PDAF/ADAF could
external soft items like sensors and fire control units this might work.
How about using it as a short range needle beam with screens reducing
effectiveness.	The system could only target sensors and firecons.

TYPE:  PDAF/ADAF against large craft(excluding fighters and missiles)
USAGE: Anti-ship role - Select to target only a firecon or a sensor and
1D6.  On a 6 the system is damaged, but not destroyed(can be repaired).
