Besides Fleet Torkahts, we are starting to see more Fleet Hoh'Sus BOPs.
Fed side we always see lots of Fleet Defiants due to so many tacs already owning the z-store Defiant therefore only having to use 1 module to get it, and it being one of the best escorts.
We don't see to many other fleet ships as much, the occasional Fleet Nebula or Fleet Recon Sci, and even more rarely, the Fleet Star Cruiser and Fleet Galaxy, although this might be good since those last 2 ships are a pain to take down.
I have the Fleet Fleet Escort (whatever it is called) on the Fed side, and love my Fleet Vor'cha on the KDF side.

I actually avoid success entirely. It doesn't get me what I want, and the consequences for failure are slim. -- markhawman
lets see i have a fleet vorcha that is parked sadly because the vet ship does everything better, a fleet ktinga that is extreamly awesome with 2 AtB that i go back and forth on with the negvar and vet ship, a somraw retrofit that i haven't used since the vet ships, a fleet heavy cruiser that i use every once and a wile, and now the steamy which i just love for some reason. my 2 AtB vet ship would be better in every way but i just get a kick out of the thing.
I've raved about my Fleet Norgh, and still love it very dearly, but I like my Fleet Hoh'sus (atrocious art aside) on performance terms. I don't care much for cruisers and don't expect I ever will. Anything where you can play a nice game of solitaire while waiting to finish a turn is...annoying, a chore to fly, not fun for me.
I dont have any fleet ships only a few lock box ones mostly because I can buy them off the exchange and one lobi ship because it is fun to troll people with the time ship and watch them not be able to get away AKA talon jones.!
Mirror Qin is a fantastic option that costs less than 1 mil EC and comes with the lovely layout of the old Fleet Escort (Patrol Escort), or the bug for that matter. It's pretty much my go-to 'scort if I'm not in much of a birdie mood.
Funny you should mention that, was just looking at an alternative to the useless ens/tac slot which would be a nice spot for PH or RSH (prefer PH because I absolutely hate the PvP tractor spam).
Just out of curiosity, before you left, or now during season 7, how many of you actually fly fleet ships. The 2000Zen per character is a total bummer. but outside of KDf cruiser i hardly see any fleet ships in pvp, mostly lockbox.
I m just not interested in any of the fleet ships (bare the Noobula, which is just the noobula) but cannot justify throwing money in cryptics direction for it. so all my pvp toons fly either S5 ships, or lockbox ships (thx again for the presents).
What about you, anybody flying a fleet ship, which one and why?
I fly the Negh'Var as an engineer/healer and have been incredible happy with the results. It is a solid heal-boat with a great turn rate (9) and a wonderful hull (42500).
I was hoping to work towards a fleet HEC (which is at the insane level of T5), but with the recent lockboxes, vesta, steamrunner and the continual escalation, I've come to realise the FHEC just isn't fit for purpose. There might be a point if I was low enough to use danubes, but as it is the FHEC is pretty rubbish.
I'll stick with my mobius thanks. That is until the overpowered escort bundle is released, with insta-pop DHCs.
