To override the Big Damage flag, you need a Huge weapon. Cyclops, Tsunami, Helios, Harbinger, Phoenix V, Barracuda, and Trebuchet all fit this category.
I thought Big Damage made it possible to be targeted by beams...?
No. Cruisers do not have the Big Damage flag, but they're still valid beam targets. Any flag of "freighter" or larger makes them viable targets for anticap beams. (Might be "transport" -- i forget whether Argos are valid targets for beams.)
Anyhow, because cruisers don't
have Big Damage, one fighter with full banks of Tempests can own them quite handily, as the burned-out wreck of any Fenris can attest. But you can't do that with, say, a destroyer or a corvette. (You used to be able to, tho, in FS1.)
