namely the escorts. the feds have great escorts with all sorts of station setups, the 2 big ones the feds have and the kdf don't are the MVAM setup and the armatige setup. the kdf also dont have any escorts with 5 tac consoles, wile the feds have 2.

well, its a good thing the tier 3 and tier 4 rapter models remain unused for anything at end game, might as well make fleet ships out of them to fill in the escort gaps

fleet Qorgh retrofit

ship yard tier 4

34,650 hull
.92 shield mod
16 turn rate
4/3 weapons
consoles:
2 eng
3 sci
5 tac
stations:
COM tac
LTC sci
LT tac
LT eng
ENS tac

fed counterpart= fleet MVAM. no mvam, but it would cloak

fleet Pach retrofit

ship yard tier 5

36,300 hull
.92 shield mod
15 turn rate
4/3 weapons
consoles:
3 eng
2 sci
5 tac
stations:
COM tac
LTC eng
LT tac
LT sci
ENS tac

fed counterpart= armatige, no hanger but again, it can cloak

thers some very nice c store costume for each these ships too, make a fleet version and people would actually have a reason to buy it. for both these ships, and the low tier versions, i think a 1 turn rate buff, like the advanced and patrol got, and later the saber got as well, all the way to 17, would be appropriate. with the somraw and Qorgh having 17 turn, and the Pach having 16.


theres also that andorian ship with its 5 forward weapons, something i somehow doubt the kdf will ever see a big c store 3 pack escort release featuring such a ship armed like that. BUT, there is the VERY underwhelming fleet qin that could be modified into something useful. i can guaranty not a single owner of the current fleet qin would object to this, make that ship's weapon loadout 5/2, with no other changes. all the kdf escorts would be great then


theres also the tier 4 bird of prey, and the tier 5 bird of prey that they could make a fleet ship out of.

Fleet Ki'tang Bird-of-Prey Retrofit

ship yard tier 3

26,450 hull

a fleet bop with a 4th sci console is a niche not filled yet, the Hoh'SuS has the 4th tac console and the brel has a 4th eng console already. just a sci console might not be much of a draw, so it has a higher shield mod, like that of a kdf escort. theres also a costume for this ship that people would be inclined to get if they could use it at end game.


Fleet Hegh'ta Heavy Bird-of-Prey

ship yard tier 4

26,400 hull
.88 shield mod
21 turn rate
4/3 weapons
consoles:
3 eng
3 sci
3 tac
stations:
COM uni
LTC uni

ENS uni


the fleet version of the tier 5 bop's special feature is that it has that missing ens station all other ships have, universal of course.thats hardly better then 2 LTC stations, so this also has the missing 3rd aft weapon an escort would have.


it sounds like there is a c store negvar on the horizon, with the regent's station setup. excited to hear about that! how about a little speculation

chancellor gowron's negvar

42,900 hull
1.1 shield mod
9 turn rate
5/3 weapons
consoles:
4 eng
2 sci
4 tac
stations:
COM eng
LTC tac
LT eng
LT uni
ENS tac

special: a disruptor clone of the andorian wing guns. these would fire from the under slung guns the negvar had in DS9. the negvar we have in game now is basicly the one we say in AGT, not DS9. the wing guns are the perfect tech to apply to a ship like the DS9 neg, and ther perfect ship to give a 5th forward weapon too. it might not be an escort, but its a big powerful cruiser, it will be awesome

1 more kdf cruiser to go, the originally tier 2 K'Tanco. 1 cruiser setup the kdf does not have yet is a clone of the excelsior station setup. that would be awesome on a awesome turning, DHC using KDF cruiser

Fleet K'Tanco Retrofit

ship yard tier 4

34,450 hull
1.1 shield mod
13 turn rate
4/4 weapons

LT eng
LT sci
ENS eng

fed counterpart= excelsior

this one, maybe they should nerf its turn down to 12, lest it be too good. or not, ether way, would be an awesome ship

oh and last but not least, the fleet Guramba

fleet Guramba

ship yard tier 5

34,650 hull
