Maybe I'm missing something simple here, but why would I want to use this as an escort pilot?
The only ships with commander tac slots and thus capable of using APDelta3, why would they want to increase their own threat level? At the moment Eng/Cruisers with 9 points in Threat can easily hold aggro as long as there is no Tac with Threat. Tacs putting points in threat already are doing this on their own responsiblity and often enough (when in escorts) they can't take the heat and I'm sorry to say this, but deserve to die.
So the question remains, why do escorts need an ability that basically renders the cruisers ability to generate threat useless? I know I can take APDelta1 and 2 for cruisers, but still the highest level would remain exclusive for escorts and also would prevent quite some cruisers from generating AoE threat (replacing FaW with APDelta).
