I find tactics to be wear escorts survive more, not so much yoru egar and build, you can have the ebst gear and build and still be blown away in 5 seconds.

The most common thing I see in pvp, fed-side, is escorts running into combat first....big mistake.

Coordination, let the cruisers enter first and create a buffer and distraction, they can handle it with science ships, let their hulls and shields absorb the klingon alpha strikes (which is extremely easy btw)

Then your escorts fly in coordinated, targetting weakest to strongest focus fire, the escorts flying together.

Thats just one of many possible scenarios I'd figure I would only present the most basic.

In short mnay escort tacs have this drive to be the first on the firing line, they often are the first piece of debris.

Escorts are like Assault units, they're good at quick hits, but prolonged warfare? No, they don't have much going for them in holding tight in a firefight for the duration (some exceptions).
