Also, frankly just look at that turn rate. It matches the patrol boat in every other aspect in durability. But is FAR more agile, worse yet it has better Inertia, and an impulse modifier. Which makes it all but impossible to keep up with one, without being in a much squishier MVAM or Defiant. But yet it's as Hard as a Patrol escort, coupled with a far more flexible boff layout.

If you put 2 pilots of equal skill against each other, but one has the bug and the other doesn't, the best you can hope for is to draw against a bug throwing every single trick in the book at it. You'll never actually beat a bug without one, if the other pilot is as good as you are, it's simply too agile, and too durable.
That isn't true, any pilot can slipup and make the wrong move at the wrong time and end up with a loss.

The Attack Ship does not give enough advantage to guarantee a win or even a tie.

Let us also remember that this is a lockbox ship, and not a standard $20 ship that is always there.
