Just A Thought , Any Feedback Would Be Apprciated.

Weeeeelll the Constitution Class Defiant (Which was waaaay better than the Misshapen Brick of a Battle Runabout from DS9) from In a Mirror Darkly had Rear facing Dual banks so this could be plausible.

But, end result of my rant, if I want my nose on a target, I will get it.

If I want Eject Warp Plasma on my target, I will get it.

Welllllll, maybe not irrelevent...but nominal. I mean if I'm in a miranda....I'm gonna be hard pressed with my like 3 Boff powers and my 3 weapons to do much against a Gal-X. Or even a shuttle! Hah!

That's why I said "equal-tier".

If you set your ship up correctly you don't need dual phaser's or cannons on crusiers.

What does that mean? What is "correctly"? 3x Array and 1 torp in the fore/aft??? Broadsides arent for me.

Different people have a preference for different weapons systems. I love a dual beam banks setup and I used to enjoy single cannons. I also love attacking with my ships nose facing the enemy. But I also wouldnt be against using dual beam banks in the aft as well.

I've been wanting this for a while just read my signature! Its directed towards escorts but can be applied to what ever.

Sorry, but I prefer to have different weapons in each of the slots so that none of them are using the same power source/cool down time. For endgame cruisers and Escorts, this means 1 each of beam array, beam bank, torpedo, and cannon in the front. For rear, the cruisers can't avoid redundancy in the rear on at least one weapon type.

Tricks to doing so... one of MANY, letting you get comfortable on my aft, pop Evasive + Attack Pattern Alpha and pull into Reverse, THEN pop it.

I don't care if you have twice the maneuverability of an MVAM, you won't have time to react, and will get caught.

This will also pull my devastating forward arc on YOUR rear in half a second.

1 volley, and you're dead. Yay win for me.

Again, simply one of many. You'd be surprised how often a simple maneuver like this works. Only real way to avoid it is to avoid the aft altogether.

This leaves my broadside and front. No matter how nimble you are, 1 Evasive if you're on my broadside guarantees my forward arc finding you.

I only need one shot.

Doesn't matter who you are or what you're flying. There are ways to make you go boom.
Sounds like a great plan against ppl that don't expect ewp to be used.
I've seen ur vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MQoykBhGf0 and im rly um, well dunno.
Ur ship shows a lot of weknesses.
U got 3DBB in front 3 turrets aft so u got no broadside. Best place for any escort to fight u.
RSP1 is the only thing that gives u 6 sec of freedom to plan ur next step but only if the enemy is no sci.
Ur EngTeam2 and Hazzard2 will give u just 2s more before ur ship blows up.
And pls, leave both copies of DEM at home u should run EPtS instead.

Btw.: any sci-craft at high aux levels can see ur "cloaked" ship within 6km if ur running at low aux level as ur vid is showing
