As somebody who's never likely to want one for reasons not merely linked to it's stats, I have no vested interest in it's capabilities.

So far, I have yet to see even one. This tells you something about it's capabilities compared to what else is on offer right now.

The Aquarius, no matter how you set it up ends up as a "poor man's" version of another ship, like the Steamrunner or Patrol Escort, due to trading a big chunk of hit points for a measly one point of turn rate. The Aquarius should have a much better turn rate. It's small enough to justify it, and as "hull nerfed" as any BoP out there. At least us BoP drivers are getting the flexibility and battle cloak. It really seems like a case of "Well, if you really, really want to fly it we'll let you.... but it won't be good." just to keep people from doing it, much like the Galaxy R.
