Now my main character is a Engineer, I normally fly Cruisers, and always had problems dying quickly with escorts, having to 'Kamikaze' an approaching mob to bring the front bearing cannons to bear...

Until I changed setups, and went with Beam Arrays and Torps.... Fly at a distance and carefully choose your target, knock down a shield facing, then toss a Torpedo High Yield swarm down the hole...

And when running from a mob, you can fly in a 'S' pattern to bring your broadside to bear on the leaders to accomplish the same goals. (Which becomes useful with the more advanced escorts, when theres enough weapon slots for a rear facing Torp launcher...)
