Guess you just mixed up most likely outcome and average outcome.
For future reference, the rule of thumb for dice average is (highest + lowest value)/2
Or, since lowest is 1 most of the time, highest/2+0.5
Problem with both is hammerhead and railtide is that missileside (esp. with ATS) is still a thing that exists
T7 Sv3+ target in 30"
3 XV88 w. 2xHYMP = 24*0.5 (bs4+)*0.5(t7)*2 (avgD3) *0.66 (Sv5+) = 8 Wounds
3 XV88 w. 2xSMS = 24*0.5 (bs4+)*0.33(t7)*0.5 (Sv4+) = 2 Wounds
BTW Tau Plasma is S6 so your math should be:
T7 Sv3+ target in 24"
XV88 = 6 * 0.5 (bs4+) * 0.67 (t7) * 3.5 (avgD6) = 7.04 + 6 * 0.5 * 0.17 (mortal) = 7.04 + 0.51 = 7.55 wounds.
plasma = 6 * 0.5 (bs4+) * 0.33 (t7) * 0.83 (6+ sv) = 0.82 wounds.
7.55 + 0.82 = 8.37 wounds.
Against a Sv2+ target the railguns will come out on top, against everything else the missileside will be more versatile.
Granted, an ATS MissileSide is 210 Points but that's well spent imho
