This was brought up awhile ago and I thought it was something that Cryptic was looking to fix. As we all know probably the biggest problem with the Raptor is that its turn axis is at the rear of the ship instead of the middle. As far as I know it is the only ship in the game that suffers from this miserable handicap. Sure would be nice to hear some kind of update as to what, if anything, is being done. Thanks!

Does make it rather a pain in combat and dog fighting. Doesn't it?

Yea getting out turned by every other escort in the game is never fun lol. But not only that it just "flies" so awkwardly and I've flown one forever.

Oh, I fully agree about that. I loved how my Qin looked, but couldn't stand the pivot point so far back. It felt like flying a dragster among sports cars.

Still waiting on this myself. A dev said months ago that they were fixing it...

Its nose turns so slow as to qaulify this Raptor as a Battle cruiser.
It would be bad in a dogfight if it packed more punch to make up for its inability to actually dogfight.

Where we expected a Warthog for ariel high-turning dogfighting combat we got a SR71 Blackbird instead. Both excellent planes just not suited to the same purpose.

People tried that before.
Stuff just gets moved to the KD forums without any comment.
When we ask why the answer is usually that it only concerns a specific part of the playerbase.
That's also why stuff that only affects the Federation side is okay to post in the general threads while ours gets moved...
