Or a carrier that has such bad inertia that it is one of the few ships in the game that will never get to defense cap and will have to dip into the low low end of the defense spectrem to even make a proper turn.

Considering that... and all the other broken options a player could choose for there carrier. I'll take someone trying to survive this way any day.

Its not that doing this is a terrible way to go as Mai says you can run shield drones for a bit more heal anyway... its just that to me it sounds very much like something Sophie would run.... the type of ship that can be completely ignored because they have sacrificed ALL there offense to live 10s longer.
As someone who runs a smiliar build to evasion tank in ESTFs on an Armitage, I can attest to the fact that it's not as powerful as folks thinks. You're still getting hit, you're still taking damage, but you've sacrificed any hangar utility for RNG armor that (to be entirely honest) isn't worth much at all when you get double torpedo tapped by a tac or gate, or eat a full torp spread from donatra.
