analysis questions

Can someone please explain the analysis screens? please. I do not get useful information from the pie charts on the weapons screen. For example, some fighter tests show that pulse lasers are more effective than basic lasers, but I can’t tell how much. The pulse fighters are generally more expensive and slower, so a slightly higher DPS might not be worth it.

Today I tried to compare fighters. I have a 2 gun fighter, with medium speed that costs 126. I have a 1 gun fighter, with higher speed, that costs 86. In most battles the medium fighter does more damage than the small fighter, but to be worth it he should do >150%. I do not understand how to read the data sufficiently to measure this. thanks.
