Ning'tao Bird of Prey base hull seems a BIT inadequate

If you want to argue
points go for it, but what you're doing is different - what you're doing is selectively choosing the aspects you feel like comparing while selectively ignoring others.
If you think this ship was not specifically balanced due to the BOFF layout you're just kidding yourself.
BOFFs are part of a ship and dictate what a ship can do, and getting
3 Universal Ltc powers and 1 Universal CMD level power
on a ship that can cloak and mount DHCs is exactly why this ship ended up with the hull it did.
To be clear, that's the best BOFF layout in the entire game. It can basically recreate any current BOFF layout only better - trading out an Ensign slot for what works out to be an extra Ltc slot. The only thing keeping that in-line is that BoPs lend themselves to a couple of very specific styles of play due to...their hull and shields.
Again, as I said before, if you want to argue the Hull and Shields are too low for what you get in return - be my guest.
Purposefully ignoring part of a ship's design so you can toss up a bunch of numbers in red and cry foul is disingenuous at best.
The Fleet chart in the SB list is just a list, there's nothing there that puts ship vs. ship in some kind of opposing faction table or chart.
You're just seeing what you want to see, again selectively choosing the things you want to push and selectively ignoring things that are inconvenient to pushing that agenda.
The only person "pushing his agenda" here is you. Be as opinionated as you like. That's your prerogative. To me it has always been nothing more than a trifling bag of hot air.
