fleet tactical escort retrofit vs charal: best dps?
 
Hi all,
Beetween these 2 ships, who can do the better damage?

Depends... Does the 5th tac console slot boost more than a 5th forward weapon? What weapon and abilities are you planning on using? Do you need to be maneuverable? Do you PvP?

If you're trying for an all cannon build I would say the Charal since you're throwing more on target.

Now if you're mixing say 3 DHC's, DBB and a torpedo you may overwhelm yourself and actually do less damage than simplifying your build a bit.

No pvp at the moment, only pve. I run on my charal 2x dhc fleet advanced phaser, 1x wing cannons, 1x dual beam bank fleet advanced phaser and omega torpedo in front, rear 1x cutting beam and 1x turret fleet advanced phaser. All borg parts.
4x tactical console phaser relays.

I see that my damage with charal is superior to my chimera.

Maybe 5 front weapons are the best stuff, and a fleet defiant cannont do the same damage.

since your comparing it to the charal i would say it would be fairly even, tough if both had only all DHC's upfront, i'd say the charal edges out just a little, if it was a mix of weaponry i'd say a charal could be even with the Fleet TER. however, the kumari variant would likely out DPS it majorly.

Yes, the kumari is more offensive with 5 tac consoles and 5 front weapons, but the survival is very low.

however, an engineer in a kumari could technically be as potent as a tac in a fleet TER.

and with the new traits for the miracle worker cooldown, it might actually be a reasonable choice.

Yes, it's right for engineer characters. But i'm a tactical ;-)

At this point i dont get the fleet defiant and i stay with my charal.

true, but if someone was planning on getting an andorian ship for an engineer, im just putting the comment in incase they visit this thread.

Yes, it'is a good advise.

The advantages of the defiant are nullified if you don't PvP such as turn rate, cloak attacks with 5 tac consoles, tighter turning circles.

You're fine with the Charal.
