Hi,

I am searching for ways to improve my cruisers turn rate and was wondering if higher engine power increases turn rate. Any other ways to improve turn rate would also be welcome, thanks.

Yes it does. Think on your engine power, as turning bonus %. Its just a minor bonus. There are also several abilities which improve your turning rate, like evasive maneuvers or aux to dampeners.

High Engine power does increase turn rate. There are Eng consoles which increase turn rate and impulse engines with [Turn], Aux to Dampers Eng BO ability also increases turn rate.

Yup the engine power does, however in tests I performed an engine power module was less effective than and additional RCS console even with the diminished returns.

I meant Engineering consoles, not engine+ (I actually forgot about those)

Higher Aux-energie also increases your turn rate...

It did in the past but they changed it in one of the patches to be higher engine power that increases turn rate, not higher aux.

No. Only Engine Power.

Engine power consoles increase engine power, therefore increasing turn rate.
