I think the benefits of the range capacitor (larger threat radius, extra shots while approaching the target, advantage in head to head combat, etc) are underrated on most weapons (although in fairness the extra shots will always be relatively low damage), and I especially like that you can "graduate" from damage capacitor to frequency capacitor as you get better at quickly lining up shots.
imho Range Capacitors are next to useless. Damage Capacitor is a great place to start when learning GSF, Frequency Capacitor is the top choice once you get some skills on all ships.

I went with range capacitors on both of my strike fighter pilots, I've found that the extra range matches my heavy lasers up to my concussion missile range fairly well (heavies still end up having slightly shorter range, but it's nice having the reticule turn red when I'm able to start locking on with missiles) and it gives me an extra second of fire while closing on gunships. Also makes hitting those fleeing scouts easier.
