Find out if you detest the way she flies, and don't spend anything you didn't have laying around to buy it. Pick a target, CRF + APO/APB, and unload. So that was okay? Now imagine it increased 3-5 times. If that appeals to you, consider rolling a Tac to put in the ship. There is just no synergy between Eng and escort.

Engineers take a tough ship and make it tougher, further hardening shields and throwing out heals to teammates because they have MW for themselves. Yes, they can make an escort tougher, but a Tac takes the liability of an escort and turns it into more damage with GDF.

I don't always fly an escort, but when I do, I use a Tac.

(Unless it's a sci-scort, but that's another animal.)
