Only thing I don't like about the Scimitar is that if you're flying alongside it and you're not running your own DPS ship there isn't anything for you to do. Its boring and un-fun how good that thing is.
This post... XD. Made my afternoon. I am inclined to agree. I often don't even bother to do anything anymore if I see a Tac Scimitar in an ESTF. I just sit back, shoot at things, and watch as it mows crap down like nothing.

Very fun to fly, the only complaint i have with it is the inertia.
Been dying to try a beam Scimitar, but haven't gotten around to it yet (Romulan BOFFs are still stupidly expensive), and I agree completely. That inertia... I keep on overshooting EVERYTHING. It's worse even then my Odyssey... -.-
Everything else, GOLD.

Yeah, still having this issue occasionally, but I am starting to realize it's as a result of everything and it's mother shooting at me. Oh wells XD.
That's why it's the most deadly maneuvre in the whole of sto and why everyone and their granny uses a battle cloak
Using the boost with apa and fomm my dhcs crit for 20k so it pays to tcloak every now an again especially when apa is up off cool down
Reading comprehension ftw. You battle cloak when you aren't in position to continue firing on your main target(s). No one is saying you shouldn't battle cloak at all. The point is this: if you still have good targets when your ambush buff wears off, cloaking for 4s to get the buff again will net you less overall dps than the dps you will 'lose' for not having the buff for the next 15s.
Put another way: if you're firing continuously at some fat target, like a gateway, taking the time to interrupt your firing to battle cloak and get the ambush buff again will yield a net loss of dps.
I have the tac scimitar.. Its a beast... Its also the ship I rarely see the respawn timer on.
And yea I use, DHCs and one DBB. After flying the bortasque on my KDF tac, this ship actually feels very nimble. I dont pvp, but in pve, this thing does credit to the original from the movie.
