What says on the tin bascially.

I like the look of the ship, and I was wondering what character would be best suited to make something useful out of one

I use a tactical character with this ship. That is mainly because that one has the bug ship so I can use the attack ships with it.

I find its survivability with the M.A.C.O. set or adapted set fine for PvE. I use a high end RCS console with it as it is very sluggish like most Dread's. I also use the hyper- plasma torps.

I wanted it for my eng character at first, but the bug requirement decided it for me. I would be interested to know how it performs with eng.

For PvE? As pretty much all PvE is a DPS race I'd recommend a tactical captain easily. The Dread should be more then tanky enough to survive almost anything if well built.

I'm going to be using it with my Tac. 4 Tac consoles, Cmdr/Lt. Tac Boffs, +10 weapons, sturdier pets and the ability to mount dhcs turns it into a nice, offensive ship. Turn-rate might be a bit crappy, but there isn't much need to change facings in PvE anyways.

If I'd want to fly a Sci or Eng carrier, I'd go for the Atrox/Fleet Vo'Quv or Recluse. Better abilities, boff & console setup and bonus power for those professions on them, than on the Dreadnaught.

I'm using a Sci for SubNuc, and have yet to regret this decision.

I've been using mine with an Engineer captain and honestly it tanks like the tankiest cruisers. I may not have APA but I have APO3 and that's good enough for me.
