Recon turns almost as well as the t3 (Akria style) Escort, while Deep Space feels more like a t2 or 3 crusier. (not a brick like t4/5 crusiers, but certianly not an escort by any means)
I can confirm that. Tested the Deep Space and Reconaissance today especially in Combat Situations to find out if the Reconaissance really is that useless and you donīt have to be an expert to feel immediately, that even if the stats might indicate a better turnrate when flying the Deep Space Ship, thats wrong. The Reconaissance is definetively more manouvrable.
