I flew the Fleet Torkaht. I found it to be a fun ship to fly, and I don't generally like cruisers. But, after the Vet ship came out I doubt I'd by any KDF Fleet ships.

1. Head to Head the Vet ship is better than most options for my playstyle (by a lot).

2. The raiders are trash. The modest improvements on them aren't worth the $$$. Though if they'd up the 16k hull's cloak to ebc, I'd consider it. Brel still the best raider imo.

3. While there's some ok KDF Fleet escorts, the best of the Fed's Fleet escorts are better.

4. The KDF Sci ships are really trash.

5. Generally not a Carrier fan, but don't see anything improved over the Karfi to the point I'd by it.

6. Which brings us back to the Fleet Torkaht. It's a quality DPS cruiser layout w/BC.

I use the Norg. It is sooper cool looking. I've used the Qin also. It is also sooper cool looking.

I know I made a video. What a surprise. And if anyone actually watches, and is curious as to if I've figured out what to do with the BOP, the answer is no. And I likely never will.

But it does get cool points.
If I don't respond to posts on this forum don't be offended. I don't sub or follow any of them.

I use the fleet K'tinga and it does nothing but beast 24x7. I also have the fleet saber and I feel it underperforms, but my skill set and equipment do not exactly meet what a saber should be trying to do, so maybe that is the real problem.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, and T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

This is exactly what i fly with fleet sheilds and weapons. of course onec a bug is behind u u are dead, cause you cant turn to attack, but hey, the bug is an iwin button, able to tank a team of players at once and outfly anything in game, lol what a joke.

mirror raptor is nice though, cant spend 20 bucks on a fleet ship thats upgrades are so minute. and i dont gamble like a spoiled child.

As botheyak said you can get FSMs on the exchange, I got my Fleet Vorcha for 16 million by being patient.

Indeed.

C-store ship > buy/farm contraband AND/OR farm dil > turn into refined dil > turn into zen (if you used only contraband it would cost appox 531 contraband at ave 45k EC each [est: 85 zen per 1 dil] for a total of 23.9 million ECs to buy a 2500 zen C-store ship using contraband alone - steep, but doable)

Lockbox ship > available on the exchange



When I did the math, I realized it would cost me something like 25 million ECs to purchase the Intrepid + FSM to have the fleet Intrepid - I bought the Wells class when it hit rock bottom for 35 million instead. The Vesta 3 pack would be in the 50 to 60 million EC range (just eyeballing it).




At the OP:


The only Fleet Ship I own is the Fleet Vor'cha, I was hopeful for the Fleet Defiant but they decided to be hilarious and give the uni ensign to the Fleet Patrol Escort instead of the iconic Defiant from canon.

I might get the Fleet HEC, but it's quite a bit away.

Fleet Patrol Escort works best for me... I find the positives outweigh the negatives (negatives being turn rate / tac consoles) when compared to higher tier fleet ships... only ship that is superior, imo, is the jem-scort... depending on player skill/build of course.

Fleet Patrol Escort is a nice ship, but unless you want to run the Ensign as Sci, I like the Fleet Saber better.

How's the shielding on the Fleet Saber?

I love the Fleet Saber. The shields are comparable to the .9 rating Escorts, in my experience. Same BOFF layout as the FPE and the most common Bug setups. Have had solid results with it in PUG matches.
