With so many scimitars that can complete ISE in two minutes, I really fail to see the problem with using a T1 ship.
Heck, I've taken T5 ships into ISE and felt useless thanks to those OP scimitars. So what's the difference? If scimitars are killing everything before anyone else can do much, what difference does taking a T1 ship in make?
Lol, yeah. I know how you feel. There are times where I've taken my Scimitar into an ESTF (this one runs DHCs... HERESY I KNOW!!!), and still felt like I was superflous. Or overkill. Basically not necessary.

Which is why you run a high DPS ship. That way, if/when that happens, you can still win with relative ease.
