He's probably talking about the Kumari one, that's the really paper-thin one. The others can tank at least as well as any other escort.

The tankier ones are basically 2-3 turnpoints and a tac console slot from being ridiculous like the JHAS.

To tank in the Kumari you want to be an Engineer. You need to have high defense rating and KEEP MOVING. You stop and you die. From there you just need to be skilled in your setup and your heals. Example of my Kumari.

i always wondered why cryptic made the wing cannon platforms always facing the target but only firing with the wing cannons...never made much sense and still doesn't.

From the description on the webpage: "glass cannon".

Could'n be more describing...
My name may say "PWE member", but I will never be.
-NEVER Forget the Screwups and ignorance made towards the people who supported the game through 2011
Don't look silly, don't call it "Zen-Store" - Don't waste devs time, Post proper bug-reports - I don't like Gekos

Thank you and I completely agree! What is even more funny though is that sometimes my wing cannon platforms DO fire on things my wing cannons are not aligned with at the time and other times they seem to fire of their own accord until I find them a target with my wing cannons LOL. So apparently there are still a few kinks in the system.

The JHAS is crap. The Kumari 5 tac console variant is fine the way it is. I fly one, i rarely explode and if I do it is because a tac cube or Denotra hit me for 70K..that would destroy any escort, including a lolJHAS.

I suggest you learn how to play an escort better. Try different BOFF set ups, you are doing something wrong, do not blame the ship. People like the OP here remind me of a slow kid sitting in front of a TV watching Scooby Doo and slapping himself in the face...L2P

Also, the JHAS only came back again for sale as a cash cow for PWE, who were betting on the fact that the only thing it is good for is the requirement to have one unpacked to purchase the JHAS fighter hangar for the Dreadnought. End of story.

The 3 pack console setup on the kumari variant is devastating in both PVE and PVP. Pop APA3 and GDF then use overload and watch how you can take a fleet Assault Cruisers hull from 100% with full shields to 20% in 3 seconds, its fun as hell. I have acutally one shotted the bugships in PVP on many occasions. I bet they throw a fit and start crying lol.

The JHAS is crap? Either you think I'm referring to something else, or you actually think the Jem Hadar Attack Ship is crap. A ship with high hull and shield mod for an escort, higher turnrate than any other escort, moves faster than any other ship in the game (including the Steamrunner), two LT boffstations, AND has 5 tactical consoles. . .and it's crap?

Also, I fly tactical BoPs. . .I know how to tank at least somewhat with that level of ship. How nice of you to make assumptions about people you know jack s**t about. Learn to not be a jackass.
