To quote General Martok's forward to the Haynes Klingon Bird of Prey Owner's Workshop Manual:

"...The Negh'Var reflects nothing about me or my approach to battle...The Vor'cha-Class may be capable of Absorbing an attack by an entire enemy fleet of warbirds and any KNOWN alien Battlecruiser. My preference is to Evade such an attack, not absorb it, and return...from completely unexpected coordinates to neutralize the attack with minimal damage to my flagship and the Fleet. The [b]Vor'cha is incapable of such tactics, thereby allowing massive collateral damage while awaiting the cessation of the alien attack before turning to neutralize the enemy ship."[/i]

What part of the concept of NOT standing nearly-still while 5-console DHC toting Fedscorts hammer your hull apart do the Devs fail to understand? Spike goes right to hull points, it's not pressure damage (a mythical creature of the distant past-invalidated by the rise of various Rep passives and such that rendered everything BUT the DHC a waste of space...)

I'm not interested in flying a punching bag suitable only for helping fill the "good day to die" mission. Devs, I want a fighting ship.

Until one is offered, I'm afraid I'll be passing on the slow-moving punching bags, thanks.
you say that as if kdf cruisers arent practically escorts already. load them up with DHCs, slot a hold, get 3 tech doffs and 2 copies of AtB, get tet glider an a few flow cap consoles, get DEM3, and go kill escorts at thier own game. i can kill bugs in my fleet tkinga and fleet kamarang. before that i had used the vorcha R and negvar with that setup, it worked on both of those well too.

the battle cruiser does not have the problems the fed cruiser has, its a ship that can serve any purpse you want it too, so the more battle cruisers with the remaining station niches fed ships already have are a very welcome addition to me.

before long, i bet there will be fleet tier 3 and 4 raptors, 1 having the MVAM station setup, the other having the armatige station setup. the kdf will get filled out, those would be easy ships to make.
