Im currently a VA with my excelsior cruiser (tac officer btw) and mostly spec'd into cruisers and my weapons etc however this morning was playing PVP as you do and my lovely cruiser was folding like wet paper against defiants so i thought 'f**k it ima do a pvp escort'
I'm going to be doing the fleet escort purely as she has slighty more to offer than the other escorts imo, im going to be getting new BO for this ship with new skills and my cruiser weapons will be carried over when i do pvp (aint spend 3+ million ec on more antiprotons) i will however be getting antiproton cannons.
On to the points i wouldnt mind having answer:
1) normal antiproton cannons or heavy?
2) should i reassign some spec points into an escort slot? so move them from lower cruiser slots into the fleet escort or not bother?
3) would neutronium alloy and a shield console increase my survivablity
4) and should i have 3x antiproton mag consoles or 2 and then 2 zero point chambers? (cant remember what there called its for quantum torpedos
