BO is nice on the larger ships, but for BoP swarms after the first cube is popped you need CSV on 3x cannons. FAW on a DBB and CSV at the same time will drain weapon power quite quickly, and I was bottoming out quite often when I tried that in an escort. Using mines against the BoPs will depend on your strategies. CSE is pure DPS really and often has you on your own (unless you're in a pre-made), so the DPS needs fall to you. For most other things I'm intending to running it more like a Sci ship with a DBB and Sci Lt. Comm. I can keep a DHC in my inventory and just switch the BOff and cannon in and be ready for DPS work on a moment's notice.
Thanks for reply but I wasn't speaking about BoPs, but Raptors. BoPs I can take care of with pretty much everything. Raptors are bigger issue, as I've been having difficulties with them playing something other than an escort or a battlecruiser. I.e. something that doesn't have dual cannons and CSV . That's why I'm so happy to see Vesta, as it's the closest thing to Kar'Fi FEDs are gonna have. I'm going to be able to use science and support/healing abilities and still be able to solo Raptors without having to worry about them reaching Kang. Just the case of selecting proper combination of weapons.
