That's the problem with ESTF - the optionals are geared toward high DPS

I can handle 3 probes with my Fleet excel eng - but it's tough - I don't have the speed or dps to handle a cube, gens,trans and get back to probes in time to make sure they don't get through.

However, I can take a whole gate down while hanging around inside it at point blank range without ever dropping below 90% hull.

So should I be forced to change to a escort and tac just to play STF?
Yes, I can and I've done it - with a sci captain in a Star Cruiser (which has 2 tactical consoles) - badly build if I may add - my typical DPS was around 3500-4000 in a 3xDBB/Photon/Turrets configuration and 2 RCS consoles and without EPtW (how stupid of me, but I guess I've learned a lot in the past half an year since I switched to fleet ships). But you must be aware that if you're doing something like this, completing the optional is a big NO.
I wrote it just to explain what it means to me to be a probe guard and this is a standart I've set for myself, not for everyone else.
I'm looking at FHEC or Fleet Assault Cruiser (FAC? ) as my next project, hopefully I'll have refined enough dilithium to equip it from head to toe.
