see, I've SEEN Vor'chas, Negh'vars and Tor'Kahts that have done this, so the challenge to Bortasque fans is, prove you can make the lumbering space whale cover the big set-C&H, Arena, Pi Canis (A and B with optionals), CSE, KSE, ISE, Hive Onslaught Elite.

Thissler, show me that, and I'll say it's a matter of skill...but then again, skill can make ANYTHING work, even one of those 'starter ships' at Tier 1...

I'll admit it to be a matter of skill, if you can do all of those with a Bort.
Thissler made a Vo'quv work in PVP: A Vo'quv with cannons to be exact. Have you seen that video yet?

Besides, if he can make that fat whale work in a Capture and Hold, I am sure he can do the same with the Bortasqu. Why? Because manuverability wise, they are roughly the same:

Bortasqu:

Inertia: 18
Turn: 5.5

Vo'quv:

Interia: 20
Turn: 5

Voquv has less tac consoles and a less flexible boff layout, less weapons. But it has hanger bays, subsytem targeting and sensor analysis, and more Sci consoles.

Bortasqu has more tac consoles, a far more flexible boff layou, more weapons. But it has no hanger bays, no subsystem targeting, no sensor analysis (save for the command version), and few Sci consoles.

I am confident he can make a Bortasqu work in PVP
