Too many guns, not enough heatsinks. A full forward volley generates 58 heat, and you only have 10 DHS. Remember that there are no minimum ranges in aerospace combat, so no need for Mech-style ranged salvos. I design my own fighters to be 100% cool firing a full forward volley, to maximize their useful firepower.

The armor is pretty typical for canon fighters in this weight class, but inadequate by my standards. If you can afford the XL engine and fancy guns, you can afford FA armor, so I would at least make that switch.

This fighter is slow for its size, even with the XL engine, and you have no tail guns. That's going to be a problem. Slow fighters need stingers.

The best way to solve all these issues might be to drop two ERLL's. Add a tail gun or two and balance out your heat and armor.

That's a lot of criticism, but I hope it's helpful.

Fair enough, your points are valid and I will use them work out a revision.
