It's overpowered for a ship in it's tier, gaining an extra LT BOff for no noticeable trade off. Low level PvP is pretty dead already, but having one C-store ship be more powerful than anything else in the tier was a pretty bad decision.
I suspect this issue is more likely to be addressed, and more quickly too, than the other issues this ship has created. I think that says something about priorities. At any rate, good luck getting your fix.
