tl; dr, imagine armor tanking with a 5 + 1/4/5 slot layout, this post made by “literally every other armor HAC” gang.
Let’s start by looking at the Sac’s description:
"Khanid’s engineers have spent months perfecting the Sacrilege’s on-board missile launcher optimization systems, making it a very effective assault missile platform. In addition, its supremely advanced capacitor systems make it one of the most dangerous ships in its class. "
So the Sac is supposed to be a HAM brawler with strong capacitor warfare abilities, and looking at the bonuses we can also infer that it’s supposed to be tanky. But the current Sac doesn’t live up to this role. Every other armor HAC, even the Muninn, gets at least 6 lows. The Sac needs that 6th low to be viable in any kind of fleet warfare, especially when you consider the HAM Legion can get 8 low slots. The only things it’s good for now are long-duration PvE where cap boosting isn’t an option, and niche solo tactics that use its abundant mid slots for control.
I suggest that the Sac should have a 4 + 2/3/6 slot layout with 7.5% per level to rate of fire and damage, which will increase its effective launchers from 8.3 to 8.8 (if i mathed right) and let it fit a ballistic control + another neut. That would make it more viable as a HAM brawler, even though the Legion would still be better in most respects.
