They could assign then Qin/Somraw raptors higher turn stats so while the nose travel would still exist, hopefully it would snap around a bit faster on target.
But I do agree it is niether a remarkable escort or cruiser and has a very mediocre feel that does not lend it standing out as iether.
Possibly a damage bonus of sorts, as well.
