All 3 variants, like i say i have try with all shield skills,or hull skills + tac team with all of them, with all 3 ships variants and with all toons, sci,tac,engi. I have try with full Neutronium Alloy + Field Generators consoles , engi tank talents etc,still the same.

He's probably talking about the Kumari one, that's the really paper-thin one. The others can tank at least as well as any other escort.

The tankier ones are basically 2-3 turnpoints and a tac console slot from being ridiculous like the JHAS.

To tank in the Kumari you want to be an Engineer. You need to have high defense rating and KEEP MOVING. You stop and you die. From there you just need to be skilled in your setup and your heals. Example of my Kumari.

i always wondered why cryptic made the wing cannon platforms always facing the target but only firing with the wing cannons...never made much sense and still doesn't.

I'd say make sure your engine power is high enough. If you have it set at 25 your defense will be shoddy. Also, I wouldn't use the assimilated set on it, the regeneration is wasted on a ship that is quick in combat. The MACO is a good hull sparing shield, and the the Covarient ones work pretty well for escorts too (not so much cruisers or science ships though).

Apart from that, remember that it does have 5 forward weapons, it's bound to be more fragile for game balance sake.

The thing is that it really isn't really brittle or fragile, at least not more than any other Fed escorts. The Charal got better hull, better turn-rate same shields and a more defensive Boff & console setup than the Patrol escort, MVAE, Armitage or even Fleet Defiant...

Imho, the only real "glass-cannons" we have ingame are BoPs, the Aquarius and perhaps the Escort Refit.
