I'll answer my own question so the rest of you know seems how you need to be educated.
Birds of Prey|
Strengths: They take a little beating to kill, they have High Yield and Cannon Rapid Fire, They Cloak during combat and stay cloaked when out of combat making them a great surprise and a real time waster for the enemy.
Weaknesses: They launch at a slower rate and you cannot have as many of these as fighters. Their Battle Cloak means they will not always be shooting the target lowering their DPS a bit.
Strengths: They launch fast and produce a lot of fighters per launch, They launch their Torpedoes often meaning three Photons are slamming the enemy constantly, They Proc with their Disruptors constantly and fire all the time increasing overall DPS.
Weaknesses: They blow up if someone looks at them the wrong way, their energy weapon is weak even between three they are not as damaging as the BoP when it is around, they never cloak which means they are always a viable target and easily destroyed.
ive played a lil but havnt got too much into a carrier always wondered how a fighter/repair drone carrier would do
i was thinking you just run high shileds and aux and spam mines and and torps as well as using target all sub sytems .....but ive never had the patients with a carrier to try im too ADD for slower movign ships
