Andorian Escorts Vs Armitage heavy escort carrier
 
Which is the better ship?????

I currently fly an armitage and ive never flewn the andorian ships, but with the 5 fore weapons and the 5 tactical consoles and the bonus tactical boff ability is the andorian ship better than the armitage? From the stats the andorian ships look far better but ive never really tried it in game. Which is best?????

Of course the Kumari is better, it's a 10 console ship. The more interesting question is, is the Fleet Armitage better than the Kumari?

the Andorian Tac is worser but the other 2 Variants of it can be better if you do it right

Would you like some apples and pears to go with that comparison?

Define best and describe what you enjoy doing, then maybe we can get somewhere.

I'll give you a hint: the Kumari is not very good at launching fighter wings.

Each has its strengths.

Andorian Escort (I only own Kumari)
Very Fast and Maneuverable
5 Fore weapons
5 Tac consoles
High Damage/ Power boost
Unique Consoles

Heavy Escort Carriers (I have both C-store and fleet)
Hangar Bay (2 would be a lot better... thanks Cryptic)
Slightly better hull (in Fleet variant)
Torp point defense console - excellent in a pinch (c-store)
Power bonuses to weapons and aux

Since you only own the one, shouldn't that read "Unique Console" ? Singular?

That really depends on if you are getting the 3 pack or only 1 andorian as well as can you get the fleet version of the hec or not.


If you get the 3 pack then the andorian is the better ship / ships

If you can only get one andorian vs the fleet hec then the HEC with ultra rare scorp fighters would most likely be better.

Also it depends on if you are looking for a more pvp or pve ship.

what about all 3 pack ships
 
u are forgetting the andorian doesn't just have the 5 fron DHC spots

if u got all 3 it also has two extra cannon platforms which will participate in any CRF or CSV ull do

the andorian can do some massive dmg with all those cannons against the armitage ....thats life...or cryptic .

That certainly isn't one of them.

I've been shot down a lot more by an armitage housing danubes than those Andorran kalamaris their more of a click auto fire and watch sort of thing

Not saying the andorion ship isn't capable of some nasty spike but that's all it's got
