it looks like a good ship, you lose one hanger vs. vo'quv but you gain two weapon slots and a whole 3 point of turn rate. anyone who owns this ship know how it fights, ie how much damage it can do vs. other cruisers and carriers.

plus, it looks better than the vo'quv, not as smooth but more angry

Very few fleets have the shipyard to Tier 3 yet, so you won't be hearing too much hands on reports about the performance of this for a bit yet. (Mine is still making it's way through completing all of Tier 2 upgrades)

From the specs, it looks to have about the same turn-rate as a Kar'fi (shipyard lists it as 8 turn as well now), but you can load RCS without sacrificing much survivability thanks to it's 4 Tac consoles. With only 1 Lt. Tac BOff spot you're going to have to stack either cannon or beam special ability cooldown DOffs if you want to use Tac abilities at a decent rate. This is one of the ships that has the 20K FC 4 FSM Fleet Version be more orientated towards Sci and the 200K FC plain Retrofit version be more orientated towards Eng in BOff layout. Either should be able to tank decently.

I fly the Orion Pig Carrier (marauder flight deck cruiser) and it's tons of fun with advanced slavers .
