As the title suggest, would it be more efficient to use widowmaker furies on a Gallente Navy Orion or scourge furies (for those unfamiliar with the Orions, they have an armor resist of 80 KIN and 50 THERM, although the tengu gets a total 25% damage bonus to KIN missiles)?

You will do 20% damage with kinetic and 50% damage with thermal without Tengu bonuses, let's say you'll do 1000 a volley.
200 kinetic vs. 500 thermal => tengu bonuses: 250 kinetic vs. 500 thermal => thermal will do 100% more damage compared to kinetic missiles against the armor of Fed Navy Orions.

If you don't want to do the math you could also have both in your cargohold, load half your launchers with a different type and compare the numbers in the combat log.

Thanks for the replies, indeed, I took a stack of widowmaker furies along and cooked through three Orions in less time it took to kill two with scourge.
