I disagree with your statement from personal experience, I have an eng in a fleet Nova specced for a fleet Excelsior who can use the Nova to lock down a target and dish out a god 1500 DPH (about 6k DPV) when I max it out AND is a good enough tank to give the old Excelsior a run for its money through a combo of decent shield tank and superior hull tank.
