Yeah, sorry for that. Right now it's just trial-and-error to find a good weapon loadout. Sadly I don't know of any such list containing detailed weapon or device specs. You can have a look at the actual tacticstypes file:

modsuniversetacticstacticstypes.ini

This contains every shipclass and every weapon, shield or engine that's being used by that particular mod, including all the parameters such as damage or HP values. If you're not familiar with the format and the parameter names, it's not that easy to read, however. :(

There is the excel spreadsheet in the Mod_Tools/Docs folder that may be easier to read.
Better to look the fool by asking, then prove them right with ignorance.

also you can try the files in the nexus TJImodsYOUR MODuniversetextstexts and look for the files regarding the weapons, some mods have those, but not many.

Well, if I'm not mistaked, the weap_gun is the first mass driver you get.

But concerning your problem, here's the original weapons ini file, in there's the description each weapon had in the original game. just search the name of the device in that file and you should find it's description.

EDIT: Yeah, do what arparso said down below :P

You are always playing a mod when using the Skirmisher. Per default it uses the "NEXUS Skirmisher" mod, which contains all the ships and the weapons from the main game's multiplayer mode.
If you're just looking for the "real" names of the weapons, then open this file:

modsuniversetextstextsdev_weapons.ini

If you're using the default "NEXUS Skirmisher" mod, replace with "NEXUS Skirmisher". The file contains the in-game names and descriptions of each weapon. After opening that file search for the weapon name being displayed in the Skirmisher. For example: on your screenshot there is a "weap_gun" - when searching for "weap_gun" in the file, you'll eventually find this text:

"gatling gun"
"High fire-rate plasma weapon against hulls. It has relatively small energy. It does not pierce through energy shields."

You'll probably also see translations of these names and descriptions, e.g. in German:

"Gatling Gun"
"Plasmawaffe mit hoher Schussrate gegen Hüllen. Sie besitzt nur relativ wenig Energie und durchdringt keine Energieschilde."
