Playing offensively as federation is impossible.

That leaves the only 'tactic' being the fed ball. Which is basically sitting around waiting to get humped.

Other than that mostly right.
20% might not be that much but consider most cruisers have multiple engineering con slots, and by stacking two 25% RCS consoles you now have 50% added turning, which complemented with skilling up specifically to the type of ship you fly can be quite substaintiall.
