So Feds have nearly every BoP configuration on any flavor escort they want. With better shields, hull, weaponry, and more bite to that weaponry due to 4 tac consoles.
I really do feel like the BoP is the AGM Zero of STO. Very good at the start, it had its spot in the limelight for sure. Now we've got AEs that can mvam to bop turn rates while maintaining superior firepower and protection, we've got the fleet escort carrier which I fully intend to try out just because of warp poo. Defiants are superior turning raptors.
It's the age of P-51 mustangs, corsairs, and bearcats vs. the little old zero.
Yes, the BoP is still good, and I still fly it, even a Brel because it's the iconic bird.
I will still fly it even against coordinated teams.
How about an added Ens slot to both heavy bop and brel? Would that be too much to ask? What are your thoughts on it?
