Ok first off, once you buy a ship from the C - Store it unlocks for your account, meaning that you can dismiss it and reclaim it as many times as you want.
Secondly, consoles from trier 5 ships like the Armitage CAN NOT be put on other ships, they simply give you a choice to remove it so you free up an extra console.
I have a a lot of experience flying an Oddy, and it is SLOW, the separation ability gives you a nice buff to turn rate and weapons power, but you sacrifice some hull to do it. Be aware that even with its turn rate buffed she still will not be as fast as an escort.
If you wanted to go for the Oddy my advice is get all 3, you get a set bonus from having all 3 consoles installed. Then I would ether fly the science, or tac one. If you can only afford 1, then go for the opps version. That chevron sep ability is very nice, and it does make it feel a little more like an escort. (But no cannons)
From what I have heard the Armitage is a very good ship and can be used to good effect by both Tac, and Engineering Officers.
Most of all make sure you read everything before you buy, (you don't want to be stuck with a lemon lol) If you are used to fast ships the Oddy will be a bit of a shock to the system, and has a steep learning curve. But once mastered is one hell of a ship.
