That would be both irrelevant to the topic of the thread and... wrong.

9000 more hull and more firepower = better tactical option. A BoP can only become more survivable than a Raptor by giving up the tactical options that give any tactical ship the damage it needs to be useful... so to come close to a Raptor in damage, a BoP must become the most fragile ship in the game.
