# 1 My Armitage Build
06-13-2012, 07:43 PM
I am a big escort guy. On the FED side I have all of them, with the exception of the MVAE and on the Klingon side I have all the raiders, raptors, and of course my beloved Guramba.

I am very excited about the new T5 Akira/Armitage. Now most of my escorts are all set up in pretty similar ways, I want to try something different with this new ship. In the description the Armitage is a carrier/gunship boat and uses a new photon torpedo point defense system, this is what I want to take advantage of.

I want to set the ship up as a photon torp boat and will mainly be used to STF. The idea of this build will be to strip the shields as fast as I can and than hurl as many photons as possible. To accomplish this I will be using tetryon weapons and the omega set tetryon glider skill. My build will be as follows.

Fore weapons- 2 Photon torpedo launchers mk xii [borg], 2 Dual tetryon cannons mk xii [borg]
Aft weapons- 3 tetryon turrets mk xii [borg]

Deflector- Positron deflector array mk xii [flwc] [shds] [ins]
Impulse- Omega force hyper impulse engines mk xii
Shield- Omega force shield array mk xii

Eng consoles- Photon point defense console, rule 62 multipurpose combat console (+11% torp dmg, +46% pwr transfer, +17 flwc), Electorceramic hull plating mk xi
Science consoles- 2 Field generators mk xi
Tactical consoles- 3 Photon Detonation Assembly mk xi, 1 Tetryon Pulse Generator mk xi

Hangar bay- Advanced Delta Flyers

Devices- Shields battery, Subspace field modulator

Doff layout- 3 Projectile weapons officer, 2 Shield distribution officer

Boff layout
Ensign tact- TorS1
Lieutenant tact- TT1, TorS2
Commander tact- TT1, CRF1, APO1, CRF3
Lieutenant Commander eng- ET1, EPS2, RSP2
Lieutenant sci- HE1, TSS2

Never tried a torpedo build before, I am anxcious to see how this works with the new ship. Don't know how viable it would be for PVP and everything is subject to change. Any advice is welcome.

Because of the carrier aspect, this might work quite well. If you have an Atrox, you might consider some Stalkers to help bring those shields. down for your torps.

Stalker hangars remain listed as "Carrier" only, not "Carrier, Escort Carrier" like the other craft were updated to show.

Just an FYI. Of course we'll see tomorrow if that changes.

Has there been any confirmation whether other consoles that boost torpedo dmg will effect the Photon Point Defense?

it is highly likely that the Photon Point Defense will function in a way that is very similar if not identical to that of the already existent Point Defense Console with the exception of doing Kinetic Damage instead of Phaser Damage. What this means is that it is highly likely that it will not gain any advantages from the Torpedo Damage Boosting Console or the Kinetic Damage Boosting Console.

Which if this is the case, I have to wonder whether people will still insist on turning the Armitage into a Torpedo Boat, or if it will eventually evolve into the standard role of most Escorts (Cannon Boats)?

The Current point defence system gets a boost from phaser relays. if it works the same way then it will.

I'm considerign a smilar build, except instead of the cannons, I plan on using the Dual Beam Arrays from "The Missing Link" with 3 Target Shields Subsytem I.

*EDIT*: And on a side note, if you want massive shield draining, you could consider the Jem'Hadar deflector. It adds +24 to flow capacitors.

Then the Wiki needs to be updated because it doesn't mention anything about that on the wiki.
