He then decided to whisper me with abuse, as Escort pilots usually cannot take Cruiser's beating them. But its all good...

So don't count cruisers out yet... A lot of it is ability with the ship you have, not just the ship itself. It doesn't matter how many guns Cryptic gives these escorts, a knowledgeable and powerful cruiser captain can take them down.
Nice to finally hear some praise for this particular ship... and I am also amazed to hear so many people get hate text from disgruntled escort players!? Talk about being a sore loser! Well done, I wish all cruisers could mount whatever weapons you want as I'd rather fly a cruiser personally... keep us posted on your progress, might give the dreadnought a whirl.
