smallRE 1.5 ton, 1 crit, 5 heat, 4 damage

medRE 2.5 ton, 2 crits, 7 heat, 6 damage

largeRE 8 ton, 5 crits, 10 heat, 9 damage

The small RE is fewer crits, but worse heat and damage, the medium RE loses outright to regulars, and the large wins on heat and crits, but loses on damage. When accounting for special armors, the small and medium still lose, but the large comes out a bit ahead, and is generally regarded as the best of the lot. Still, 5 crits ಠ_ಠ.

Ranges are all the same as normal lasers, and BV is similar. Weapon BV is based entirely on range, damage, and odds of hitting, so since the range and odds are the same and the damage changed only slightly, this is not a surprise.
