No you are not the only one. Many know that the feds are not near as gimped as they claim to be by ship design or build capability.
I play a fed character 100% of the time, and I would agree with this. I would say that neither side is really gimped as far as ship design or capability.
Most fed players are horrible when it comes to teamwork, and that is the problem, not their ship's capabilities. I am just glad that my fleet does use good teamwork, and we usually are very successful in pvp.
