To be fair, I have seen guys in star cruisers advertising the bootcamp. And all the paid cruisers seem closer in effectiveness to the star cruiser than the bug is to the starter escorts.
If you're talking about an escort vs escort fight, even the fleet patrol cruiser is closer to the vanilla model than the bug, since the turn rates are very close. The bug basically has the agility of a bird of prey, but the sturdiness of a fed escort. Escort vs. BoP fights can be a little balanced because the escort is more able to take damage so it can compensate for not getting it's guns on target as easily. But an escort has no advantage at all over a bug.
