Crew means absolutely zilch. Voquv has 4k crew and they are all dead within a few seconds of battle.....we all know this, so using crew to compare ships is pointless.

I would not dismiss a 5th front weapon slot so easily. Especially if its a DHC.

Crew death "within a few seconds" only happens if you happen to fly into a cloud of bugged theta radiation. Otherwise, +1000 crew ships hardly ever lose their crew.

I would, after seeing the effect energy drain has on damage, it works out to a 4% in forward facing damage overall. I'd rather a 5th tac console, and a solid BOFF layout that could do aux/batt +DEM II.

Beyond Wing Cannon Overload, the Kumari is below average....

Honestly, quite a lot Rom-side feels OTT at the moment.

Yes, pretty much.

The only thing I can think of, is that it does not gain the standard Escort (Or Raptor, Raider) +10% Defense bonus.

OTOH, anyone with a crapton of ECs can slot top end rom or reman boffs to match or supersede that.

You're not.

Most stock Fed/KDF faction ships are anywhere from a little bit to a whole lot inferior to what Roms have access to.

People have been going on and on about the Andorian escort but its really just a paper tiger. The Kumari variant in particular has got to be one of the worst designed BOFF layouts we've seen in a while.

That's really the only thing keeping me from flying it.

I'm willing to make exceptions for stats usually, but this ship is just so heinous looking that I can't bring myself to fly it.

Luckily the T'Varo and Mogai pretty much suite my needs, so there's consolation in that.

The Ha'feh is the only ship i've flown where the hull can be beat to pieces without ever losing a shield facing. It feels like the skill points you devote to the hull aren't even counting. It has a good amount of hull points, but not even my BoP's hull buckles like the Ha'feh does, and the BoP has far fewer hull points.

So no matter how OTT it looks on paper, the fact that rotating two copies of EPtS can't save that thing if the hull heals are on cooldown, balances everything out. Putting some high tier rep gear on it might help out some, but that bleed-through is what kills it.

Seems like I was right about this ship.
