the raptor aint that bad. i fly one in T2, and sure you have to play smart and let your comrades fire first.
also on 1 on 1 it stands its ground easily, provided you dont let the ship fly around you. but that applies to BoP too.
I find by using the shield energy setting, you are way more durable, and you still pack a punch, due to the low impact of cannons cannon rapid fire on weapon energy.
To sum up, the raptor are for ppl that enjoy a slower pace, know when to strike and flee, and participate actively in the team through heal or focused fire. and it can hold its ground on 1v1.
I guess on T3, things get edgy for the raptor with feds using RSP etc
