Even a small effect would be useful against a ship with already poor shielding when facing another ship with fresh shielding.
Deep, we're talking about a difference of at least half a dozen orders of magnitude. It's the equivalent of overtaxing a nuclear reactor by plugging in a couple more lightbulbs.
Not really. To my knowledge only six fighters fit in the shuttle bay. The rest are on flight or dock with the exterior ports.
I'm talking about six fighters - the depth of Neb-B's elephant's trunk (or whatever you want to call it) is only three times the length of an X-Wing, and it's not much wider than the wingspan of one.
