# 1 Fleet Heavy Escort Carrier ???
06-30-2012, 08:10 PM
What Starship design is going to be used for the FHEC.

Since The FHEC is going to be the only other starship able to use the Torpedo Point Defence System.

I was wondering what class of starship it could be.

I'm hoping it might be the Promethus Class With the MVA system and the other point defence system added to the Torpedo Point defence system and 2 or 3 hangers.

The Promethus as a possible Fleet Heavy Escort Carrier and with all of its BO slots being universal (2) Commander, (4) Lt.Commander slots

The Promethus has my vote for Fleet Heavy Escort Carrier

The Armitage IS a Fleet Escort with pets.

That's almost precisely what it is.

Still, asking for 2 Commander and 4 LTC Boffs, Universal at that? In an Escort of all things? This is either a troll post or you're retarded when it comes to system balance.

No, Just wanted to be able to have an almost all Tac crew and be able to use their LT. Com & Com level weapons training

Also check out the information listed on the Torpedo Point Defence System.

Their is the Heavy Escort Carrier ( The Armitage) and the their is listed a Fleet Heavy Escort Carrier

Irrelevant. The ship functions as a Fleet Escort with a console and pets. The ship's functionality and combat tactics are almost identical.

I don't care what the console designates it as.

I use the ship. I know how it flies. Avidly in both PvE and PvP.

Nevertheless... name one other ship that even has a 2nd Commander slot ANYWHERE in the game. Name one ship, even without ANY Commander slots, that has 4x LTC Boffs.

Name a ship that would be so asinine as to make this many OP BOFF slots, and then make them Universal.

At the same time, giving it the maneuverability and function of an Escort.

Then while you're at it, define how this would not be ridiculous in the game by combining its ability to multi-vector AND have up to 3 Hangar bays, then give it yet ANOTHER point defense bonus.

If you can do that with a straight face without saying the ship has absolutely no shield system at all and the hull of the Miranda starter ship, then I will say you're a moron.

If you can do that without a straight face, then I will say you're a troll.

The fact of the matter however is even if the level cap increased to level 60, and a new Tier-6 fleet were designed, even with +1 variants, this ship you suggest would be ridiculously overpowered and pathetic if implemented.

It will be an improved version of the armitage, that's all.

I do wonder, though, if it will have an extra tac console or an extra eng console (I would imagine it would be eng, but you never know)

The Fleet Heavy Escort Carrier will be an Armitage with improved stats and a cool material... thats it. I do almost hope it gains another hangar though, just for fun.

Thanks for this. It's my favorite Armitage post yet even if you are a troll or that guy from the priority one podcast

They're making another version of the Heavy Escort Carrier? This is the first I've heard news about it.

An extra Tac console would be ridiculously OP. It'll be an eng or sci console.
