The difference is much smaller than it appears; add the needed power plant and fuel for the real cost of the weapon system.

Meson J: 1000 Dt + 800 Dt + 800 Dt = 2600 Dt.
Meson N: 2000 Dt + 1000 Dt + 1000 Dt = 4000 Dt.
PartAcc T: 3000 Dt + 1000 Dt + 1000 Dt = 5000 Dt.

So, a Meson N installation is 4000/2600 ≈ 1.5 times as large as a Meson J, hence a ship carrying it is 1.5 times as large and expensive.

I'm probably mixing editions, but double shot with batteries, and then run for one round while replenishing the batteries and cycling the mount.

Rinse and repeat.

Rapid Fire was an option in MgT1, and has nothing to with either LBB5 or MgT2.
