Not really- the c-store B'rel is 2000 zen IIRC, so this upgrade without purchase of the c-store ship would be half the price of the c-store ship, with all the goodies plus some. for a single account unlock- no too shabby.
4 fleet mods =2000 zen though. this is a single character ship that costs more then that!
fleet brel 24750 hull, shield mod .88, 4 eng consoles. yes, it has enhanced BC. 4 eng? really?
My thoughts exactly. A BoP with slightly better tanking (LOL) capabilities? Oh god, why cryptic? WHY? Just give this ship a science console if you guys don't want to make a copy of the Fleet Hoh'SuS layout. But 4 engineering consoles on the shipclass with the lowest hullpoints in the game is a total waste, it's not like it could survive a prolonged fight anyway.
Seems rather like they want to kill their sales on one ship for another in regards to the B'rel Retrofit.
At least with other Fleet variants, you can equip the T5 console on the new ship. The B'rel Retrofit has no console. Giving the Fleet variant an Enhanced Battle Cloak makes it pointless to get the Retrofit.
As for 4th Eng console, I could move one of my universal consoles to the 4th Eng slot and free up a Sci console slot to put in some more Sci consoles or more universal consoles.
