Its has some nice features, but both the Armitage and the Thunderchild say to me that the artists don't get what makes the Akira so cool. The Thunderchild has its nacels up to high, making it feel out of balance, and the Armitage has the front edge of its sleek saucer belly blunted off, with the deflector moved forward into a more clunky design, totally ruining the visual flow. Maybe they can be bashed together into something that works, as the skins are pretty sweet, or maybe type 6 skins will be made to work on the standard Akira model. Maybe they will show up on Redshirt and/or Tribble so we can check them out.

The extra love shows... Personally, as someone who WANTS this ship (I love it, and my complaint is actually WHY I want it), I think it's... well, a LOT OP. It's got a Torpedo PDS (Hella damage), a wing of fighters (as if it needed the support), and stats that come REALLY close to the Defiant Retrofit (superb turn rate with a BOFff slotting that looks like a a DPS/Tank hybrid's DREAM). It's got the capacity to be really HELLA damaging as an Escort alone, but then it has all the extra HELP. This is NOT a ship whose guns you stare down in a one-on-one, unless you're freakin' INDESTRUCTIBLE. Did anyone, even ONCE, look at this and say, "shouldn't this be toned down? Isn't this just a LITTLE overpowered?"

Beautiful ship, clean lines, looks absolutely gorgeous. Quite a bit overpowered in PvP with the free hanger bay; far, far superior to the MVAM pets.

# 77 More Bugs
06-14-2012, 10:26 PM
Ich entschuldige mich für mein schlechtes Englisch...

Erstmal finde ich das das neue Schiff sehr gelungen ist...
Aber ich habe noch 2 weitere Fehler gefunden:

1. Ich habe als Untertasse die Akira Variante gewählt... nun habe ich dort aber nicht meine Registriernummer auf der Hülle, sondern irgnedeine merkwürdige lange Zahl

2. Ich kann unser Flottenemblem nicht auf das Schiff setzen....

Dies sind nun zwar keine elemntaren Fehler, aber vielleicht kann sich jemand mal drum kümmern...

ansonsten weiter so
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
I apologize for my bad English ...

First, I think that the new ship is very well done ...
But I have found 2 more errors:

First I have chosen as the saucer the variant Akira ... Now I'm not there, but my registration number on the envelope, but irgnedeine strange long number

Second I can not put our fleet emblem on the ship ....

These are now indeed no elemntaren error, but maybe someone can take care of times drum ...

otherwise, keep it up

# 78 Love this ship
06-14-2012, 10:29 PM
So i got this ship this morning and i have got to say i love it. I have never played a carrier before because i am not a fan of slow moving ships (honestly my only engineer ship is the dreadnaught) but this ship has everything i wanted in one. Yes i could not take it in to an STF run and could not equip it with the scorpion fighters but this ship handled like a beast in the fed mirror universe event! Agile with support craft and great crowed control with both PDS on it. By far one of my favorite ships that i have purchased.cant wait to use her in an stf tomorrow

This isn't a bug, it's intentional. Even the C-Store description says so.
