Ok, I know that there have been a lot of "Cruisers need a damage buff" threads recently and by now most of us are bored of them, I myself am but I felt this was worth saying.
I run the T3 Excelsior and the T5 Excelsior and decided, for %$^%s and giggles, I'd take my T3 one out for a while. I did a couple of STFs in it KASN and CSE, I can already hear people thinking "Get to the point already!" so here is said point:
My T3 Excelsior managed to pull a gates agro off an Oddy and a T5 Escort, hold it and survive at the same time. All the while putting out the same damage figures of my T5 version using the same build (As shown below).
