Then it must have been updated. But you misread my post. I am not talking about rear admiral level. I am talking about VICE admiral level. A t4 ship against t5 enemies is not that difficult, Making all your "accomplishments" minimal at best. A t4.5 ship, Which is what the retrofits are, In reality, Like the Galaxy-X, Against t6 enemies is an entirely different situation.
Compare the stats for yourself. I am biased, However, As I despise ALL escort class ships on principle.
