What Cornetin said. The thing is, with the BoP you can decide if you want to be tougher, or if you want to be all out offensive as the Raptor.

You cannot fly the T5 Raptor like the earlier Raptors, basically BoPs with a bit more hull and stay in battle. This won't end well.

Focus on Alpha Strikes, use Alpha & Omega and fire with HYT III into shield gaps and you can destroy cruisers in the ~5 seconds before they can get up RSP or other buffs up again. And then dust off. You have only two engineering slots, you cannot take damage. So focus on your strength, zip in, dish out a lot of damage and speed away.

But in general... I would rather use a BoP. So many universal BO slots = pure sex.

In T5 I would only advise Science Captains to use the BoP, or if you PUG alot. For Tactical Captains the T5 Raptor is just awesome and working very well. Just do not try to use one before level 45, you will get targeted a lot if you are low level (that advice is true for all tiers).

Location location location!!!!

A BoP can manuver to multiple battle locations before the rapto can line up it's second shot. I believe this in and of itself gives the BoP more dps potential.

Except that the other aspect of mobility, speed, is exactly the same between the raptor and the bird of prey, and in most situations, barring knife fighting with federation escorts, the turn rate doesn't mean much.
