KK the dreadnought is just horribad, and i doubt that even jem bug pets can make it viable in PvP. unless they get the victory is life proc, lolz @ the idea of SNB fighter pets. Like the breen ship, the layout just doesn't quite cut it.
As for the heavy escort, let it have bug pets too, just for fun sake. The turn seems to be a bit on the low, even the breen cruiser has a higher turnrate.
The console will make sure that every bug pilot is going to buy both ships anyway.
