Anyone can mash all their CDs for instant mega DPS but the serious players in any game have mastered the art of CC in any length of engagment. Demanding to launch Escort class ships is just asinine.
May I point you to the Karfi's frigate (frija or something like that). It is most certainly NOT a raider, further the feds have no analog to a raider.
Instead they should have something "fed like". A miranda light cruiser, a Nova science vessel, maybe a saber or NX escort.
This gives a variety of ways to take it (only need one).
You could go for a light cruiser with skills like FAW, and maybe an extend shield or some sort of healing.
You could go science and have it use possibly some team skills, and possibly CPB or another possibly more offensive science skill. Maybe let it have a torp or mine skill, a mine skill would make it pretty unique.
You could go with an escort, this would be pretty inline with what the KDF has for both frigates already (damage machines, with the karfi's being abit more on the cc side comparatively). Have it use unique weapons for a launchable craft like dual beams.
The options are there, the Atrox just lacks a fighter with muscle, something can be launched into "spam" and survive more than 2 seconds. Something that has the more robust staying power associated with the karfi frigates or bops.
