In addition, it cannot mount dual cannons (whereas Recluse can), it doesn't have any universal boff slots (whereas Recluse does), and it costs absurd amount of Zen (2500? Really? It should cost 2000 like the majority of other non-top-tier vessels).
Save your EC and get yourself a Recluse. Superior ship with superior capabilities.
Still, I dumped them both in favour of the Vesta, because I couldn't stand the slow turn rate anymore. Also, Fed hangars aren't really that great. If you want to have some fun with a Carrier then I strongly suggest playing as a KDF in a Kar'Fi.
Well, that's not exactly a glowing endorsement
Now I've got some followup questions:
- Are dual cannons that important to carrier builds?
- Is the Atrox that inferior?
- What's a better buy, a Mobius or a Recluse? I know the Mobius isn't a carrier, but if you had the EC to spend, which would you pick?
