PVP yah....I wouldn't really bother with this ship. I have. It can be done for sure. But the pay off vs the work, why would you? Ok I have done it. DHC's and all. Just saying once you downgrade to beams or cannons time to change ships.

For PVE, in particular reffering to STFs, this ship is the epitome of the assault gun concept.
I did pvp with tac bortasqu with dhc before, yeah its fun but hard if you dont immediately kill the target with decloaking autocannon and CRF attack, then afterwards you are mostly useless unless there is slow target to shoot or you evasive away and cloak for another alpha. Kind of plays like Fed dreadnought. Its fun seeing targets instantly die to it sometimes but if they rsp in time when you decloak or evasive away you are screwed.

I might try trico mines on it with dpb2 or dpb1 though, or maybe its time to start seeing how useful other mines could be if the tricobalt nerf is bad enough, thanks.

Okay so I'm sure we all know that given the resources of a fleet, or if you've already achieved the STF gear, it isn't really a big deal to kit out a ship. Or maybe you have spent the time or EC to amass a collection of nice purple doffs.

But suppose you aren't in that spot. For less than a Million EC, can you kit out a ship that you can have fun with in STFs? And by 'have fun' I mean 'don't die and contribute'.

Yes you can. And I took pictures of it!

Cheers and happy flying!
