I have to disagree, rather strongly; that's not like what I'm suggesting at all. Cruisers wouldn't be that maneuverable with an increase like this, and they would give up a tanking module to do so, thereby making them softer. It's not like I'm asking for a free turn rate increase, which is what the cruiser threads all suggest.

Second, I'm not trying to be 'quick turning'. An escort is a quick-turning ship; a cruiser never will be, without using abilities; I'm suggesting a change to a module that would help cruisers turn a little faster, at the expense of some of their tanking ability.

Then again, that one learns to expect anything from that crowd.

Well, then the players you've spoken to are lacking in the same areas you are. It's not even a question of opinion: it literally gives the same boost to everyone. That's what relative increases do.
You're jumping to conclusions...incorrect ones, at that.

Perhaps you can answer the following question for me:

How would it break the balance of the game if cruisers, science vessels, and carriers could turn a little bit faster, if they are giving up a tanking console to do it, and can't mount dual cannons?
