Just wanted to point out that the Sao Paulo's Quad Cannons work on this ship but so does the Gladius' Impulse Capacitance Cell.

When you mix both therefore with the complimentary Cannon Rapid Fire and Attack Pattern Omega skills you can achieve a really damaging ship that can easily get the hell outta town too. So it's very much an "Quick In, Quick Out" kinda attack run you end up doing which is a great difference from the usual slow Cruiser Tank I've been flying so far.

Wasn't sure if people were aware you could use these two 'Federation Escort' items (quad cannons & console) as I wasn't, but in this bug they're ace!

A couple of things I am pretty sure when the dominion decided not to take those ships back from a story standpoint they became federation escorts. As far as equipping the p2w consoles I am very sure the kdf Jem Hadr ships can equip their lame cheese too. The Jem Hadr ship is simply another op escort for both sides.

As far as doing strike and run tactics you couldn't be more wrong. That ship in the hands of the right captain can be the most survivable escort in the game. Building it for strike and run wel.... In the words of a famous great pvper YOU'RE DOIN IT WRONG!

I'm not focusing on survivability this time though - I have a Cruiser Tank built specifically for that. As I said in the first post here, I wanted something different and this hit & run "Hit them with loads of rapid-firing cannons up front, boost out & turn, and then repeat" is exactly what I wanted and does really well in PVP so far because it's so nimble.

I know the feeling speed and turn are op for escorts. But you don't necessarily need a Jem Opdar ship for that. I can make any escort including the fleet escort move like a cat and can even out move an mvae in a fleet escort with one of my builds.
