I have done STF's with standard gear without issues and this was even before the nerf. There is some good standard gear out there if you look hard enough. I have yet to die at all in a STF since the last patch. I would say the Borg have been nerfed too much!
And they run fine too things that can only kill me in stf gate and tac cube i can take on a regular cube easy,And i am going to say this as well it depends on your skill setup and how you play.It helps to have better gear.But even with MK XI gear you can still tank.I have tested lots of builds and the current one i came up with for the breen ship does massive damage.And i heal quickly as well.With my skill setup.
