I have one on my fed toon and it sucks, the feds choice of pets is appalling and it blows up for fun.
I am sick of having to haul my ginormous vo'quv ass over the other side of a KASE map because they've got beat up by a cube and are about to let the (ive got these) probes through and ruin the optional
karfi and vo'quv are the best carriers on the game with the recluse probably taking a third place from what ive seen
but any decision you make don't waste your money on the atrox
however he is referring to a fed carrier. and on top of that the recluse is very expensive the atrox is a good ship sure not very manuverable but that also can be used as a advantage like power sliding into the fight if timed right you can have systems at fighting stength while crusing into the fight also carriers don't ususally need to involve themselves in fights. atrox can just hang back and lets its wings of fighters do the work for it. sure it can suppliment them but for the atrox it is there to support the fighters not be a standalone DPS unit. the recluse is fleet grade but very expensive so unless ya know how to earn EC fast it is not a viable option. I would also reccomend looking at the Armitage and the Vesta line because they are carriers meant for front line action unlike the Atrox which should hand back a bit from all the fighting and yes the atrox can equip cannons.
