Someone in my fleet grabbed it with lobi. It's ridiculously fast and agile. Turn rate puts the bug to shame.

As someone mentioned above I'm thinking of getting it and using EPTE, RSP EPTS3. but this LtCmdr eng station gives much flexibility. Aux2batt, AUX2SIF, DEM, EWP, EPTW3...many combinations to explore.

Chalk up another one for the escorts.

I saw one in orbit over Risa this morning. Tiny little thing, if he hadnt been neon green I'd have missed it. He warped out almost immediately so I only got a glimpse.

If its tiny and an escort I must get this for my Tac-slave, new toys for my pixel puppet. Also speed tanking is the best, bring on the STO wipeout month.

Has anybody witnessed how it takes a hit yet? Or better yet, how it hits?

Just got mine - Registry #8!

Yeah it's FAST and can turn, better than my Klink BoPs. IMO maybe too fast for cannons, so I'm going to try out a torp boat build.

It seems to be more sturdy than a BoP, but It'll need some more testing to be sure

I've only seen one...period...and that was a Sci Corvette in a CCE/CEE. I didn't really pay much attention to it...I tend just to fly around in a circle around the entity while reading the forums or whatever is going on in OPvP. Was on my team though, and I don't remember it blowing up - while the other three folks did...often. That could just be the player though and doesn't really offer any info on the ship...

One of my fleet mates cashed in and had it within a couple days of the event going live. He plays a lot but doesn't play at a high level or really PvP, so I wouldn't call it a thorough test. He was able to get it up to some ridiculous speeds without even making any special effort to do so. None of us could catch him in a flat out race even running 100 engine power and an engine battery. I was the only real PvP player among the group we were goofing around with, so I was able to pop him pretty much at will. People more on his skill level though, it was clear it was giving him an advantage he otherwise wouldn't have had. He tanked a guy's Fleet Regent for like half an hour.

A question/clarification in regard to the Corvette that I have...

The up to 15% +Def based on speed - is that a replacement or in addition to the +10% +Def for being an Escort?
