the jem set getting upgraded, that shield has the potential to out do maco. so that will be interesting to see. less plasma weapon immunity at least

the mirror escorts were a given, and i think a MVAM console with an ens eng might be a nice combo. the mirror patrol is completely pointless though with the fleet patrol having a universal ens, and being better in every other way. the mirror carrier will proboly have the catbox LTC sci and LT tac station setup.

heres a good a place as any, ship speculation

Jem?Hadar heavy escort

Hull Strength: 36,000
Shield Modifier: 1
Weapons: 4 Fore, 4 Aft
Device Slots: 3
COM tac
LTC eng
LT tac
ENS uni
Console: 4 Tactical, 3 Engineering, 3 Science
Base Turn Rate: ~13 degrees per second
Impulse Modifier: 0.18
+10 Power to Weapons; +5 Power to Engines
Can Load Cannons
1 hanger

i suspect its basically a breen ship with a LTC eng, but its also more like i much better armatige, making it sort of a joke by comparison, with the stupid hanger it has.

Jem?Hadar Dreadnought Carrier

Hull Strength: 42,000
Shield Modifier: 1.2
Weapons: 4 Fore, 4 Aft
Device Slots: 3
COM tac
LTC eng
LTC sci
LT uni
Console: 4 Tactical, 3 Engineering, 3 Science
Base Turn Rate: 7 degrees per second
Impulse Modifier: 0.15
+5 Power to Weapons; +10 Power to auxilery
Can Load Cannons
2 hanger

i can only hope these ships are more pve toys like the breen ship is, rather then the new best pvp escort and pvp carrier. if the dread is tactical focused, i dont see how it could be much of a pvp ship. 4/4 weapons and 7 turn would be a lot for such a thing though

i bet the carrier will have at least a turn rate of 10 for it to be "tactical" focused.
