I've actually found the NL-35 surprisingly useful to fill in gaps in fire power and coverage, especially on smaller vessels, enough so that the weight difference of the NL-45 was just enough that I'd have to give up a weapon there completely.

As such I've never considered the NL-45 to completely render the NL-35 pointless, but I do grant it comes damn close.

The screen launcher seems to also at least merit a mention.  The area effect damage means that it essentially always hits targets in short range and since stacking is unlimited in space hexes the damage that it inflicts is potentially unlimited.  That's a rather unique effect which could potentially be heavily exploited against fighter swarms.

Oops: Naval C3 changed in the errata, so I agree Light Naval Gauss seems born obsolete.
