This. If it's true, then I really have no problems with it. As I've said elsewhere, each faction has their advantages. If KDF ships have to sacrifice a bit of shield mod in favor of a more tactical approach (battlecruisers with cannons, BoPs, etc) and built-in cloaks, then I feel it's a fair tradeoff.

I've seen KDF players tank well, so it's still possible. Feddies just have more options for it, as they should. Fits the doctrine a bit more. Take a few hits, and then open channels and try to BS your way out of the fight
