Less than a standard T5 really... 1 less console, 1 less weapon slot.. You dont get the bonus from whatever skill points you put into any T5 ship skill, have to respec if your not skilled in phasers to get the most from the bonus weapon etc... your a huge target in PVP...
Well the last one isnt a flaw really.. but its a pain !!
It fires twice and I get 4-5k each time, with no skills at all spent in phasers, with 9 phaser skills I think it was about 9k each hit.
So nothing great, with a few minutes cool down you get more dps from another beam if you had the extra weapon slot back.
So the only thing thats a bonus is being able to cloak, and its not a battle cloak so its only good to line yourself up before a fight.
Its the only cruiser that can have cannons as well, though they are not worth much as the boat turns way to slow to keep the target in front of you so you get more DPS out of another beam up front and ditch the cannons.
Still in cap and hold PVP at least you can cloak around between the cap points.. only real bonus ive found so far
That being said its nice to have something different, so I cant complain too much..
