MVAM gets high 40's 72/50

the bug with two blue mark 11 rcs console gets 51.9 turn at 69/50 engine power
my MVAM with one purple mark 12 RCS gets 51.9 turn at 72/50 engine power

This actually surprises me alot, I figured the ships would have nearly the same turn rate.

and for APO, it actually hurts you to equip two of them on an escort, try APO and APD with doffs. this sounds crazy but I tried two apo and my attack pattern uptime was less than using APO and APD.

I hope this helps
Hurts you in what way?

Granted APD. Will increase resistance and damage however the most invaluable use of APO I find is making gravwells tractors and other annoying/cheese and spam useless

The damage part is a bonus but most of my damage comes from tac powers

Plus the speed and turn boost is something I can't do without being a gumby fighting much faster Turning bugs and defiants

I could be wrong but that's the way I see it

My opinion on what the thread was originally about is - it would be stupid to nerf the bug when you think of how much crazy real life money people have spent on them

However boosting the other ships around it should be done as and when the devs can(not saying the bug is op and not saying it can't be beaten with other shipsand not saying other ships should be brought to its level)

When you think of the negative survivability the Mvae takes to move a higher rate just shows how much it needed a boost of some sort
