Now, I'm aware that the whole cannons on a ship that turns like a brick in tar being bad thing, but just because I can fit them doesn't mean that I will.
So opinions? Anyone about that actually has one and would share how they equip it?
It's an effective ship if used properly.
One point that springs to mind is that I found that the subspace jump console works a treat on it. Managed one or two one-shot kills using the subspace jump + lance.
Basically, weaken enemy shields - activate buffs - subspace jump - phaser lance - enemy ship goes boom!
The turn issue can be helped, though not to overwhelming degrees, by an RCS console.
And if you equip phasers and phaser relays the lance gets a boost.
