I'm asking mainly because since the mine nerfs there seems less of a pressing need to weaken their defenses for as long as possible to give my team a chance to bring down a bomber. So I've been thinking that increasing the total damage Thermites do on their own so as to be more lethal to non-bomber targets might be the way to go since it might make a difference between the DoT killing a strike/scout and them having just enough hull to limp away.
Get the duration. More time under the debuff is better.
