I love the idea of a heavy escort I'm more of a kdf man myself or I would use the armitage as its a beauty

My tips were just what I've learnt and how I've adapted not saying that's the be all and end all but seems to work for me

The defiant - ok I own this baby, fleet version

Damage - crazy damage for obvious reasons

Speed - good speed/ turn

Boff layout - that ensign tac is a massive pain if you want to use beam overload then I great I don't use it as it messed with my power too much you could use torpedos but again I don't use them on this just can't get away with them especially the speed I try to fly in pvp timing them to hit hull is difficult

Survivability - massively hindered by that stupid tac ensign if only it was eng or universal

Summary - too many tac slots I know it sounds stupid but I hate waste and I find that's what I have when I run it is massive waste

Again this is just me I've seen some deadly defiants clash into me I've seen some that are hard to kill(eng cap) and I've seen some that just won't leave you alone(speed) but I just can't get away with it maybe I just need to try harder and practice more with it or maybe get a team where I can get some support instead of it being the kdf against me and a boat load of AFKers(happens a lot fedside)

If I had the choice again and the zen I would but the mvae get the fleet version or the armitage but those two I'm just basing off what has looked more impressive from a kdf point of view sometimes pure damage isn't key that's where the hangar comes in and really owns some players
