This is of course based on a series of assumptions. While five escorts would blow through everything, undoubtedly some would blow up in response. It hinges on the uptime of four escorts and a healboat providing more DPS than the uptime of a five-escort team, but I doubt a single healboat could tend to four escorts at once. Two skilled healers could almost certainly keep three escorts alive through a whole run barring sudden death torpedos, basically meaning sustained DPS.

I'd love to see some numbers on this sometime.
5 Escorts that actually bothered to cross-heal. None would blow up. Escorts can be replaced by anything escort like for similar results.

In the past it was atleast 4 escorts + 1 sci/carrier but they nerfed even the system drain.
