The Excelscior edges out the Assault Cruiser in terms of damage capability due to it having a LT CMDR Tac BO giving you the option of running BO3, HY3, FAW3...etc. It also has one of the best turn rates of the Cruiser family.
The Assault Cruiser will put out comparable damage, but it is more "Tank'ish" with a more traditional Engineering BO and Console setup giving you more support tools. This also lets you run 1-2 DEM copies without sacrificing too much healing (as you would with the Excelscior).
