I haven't tried an escort yet but I really enjoy my cruiser so far. Maybe I'll grab an escort for my captain rank ship to try it out. Maybe I will enjoy it.
Any weapon suggestions for an escort? Dual cannons I am sure, but turrets on the aft or something else? What about energy type? I am using plasma ATM.
