Do you want fixed BoFF stations, standard cloak, and the weird pivot-point that makes a Raptor about as manueverable as a gimped cruiser, or do you want flexibility and speed at the cost of a slightly lower hull and one less console?

The Bird of Prey is highly flexible and highly customizable, you could (not saying it's a GOOD idea) run ALL Tactical officers at your Bridge stations in one, or run lots of science types, or engineers for heal/toughness...and you get a cloak that's a mite more flexible to apply than a Raptor, a better turning radius than a Raptor...

the only thing a Raptor really has over a BoP is a conventional layout in stations, and a slightly tougher (base) hull.

BoP. It can be customized as you wish, just like Lego toys

Yeah I too prefer the BOP even with their weaker hull.

BoP, just don't expect to 1v1 with the VA 'free' ship in PvP unless you've got the right build for 1v1ing. It's pretty fragile compared to Federation escorts.

I would only go Raptor if you plan to use 2xRCS consoles or 2xApO to help it turn or unless you plan to buy the Fleet Somraw.

At captain level, definitely BoP. Maximum pew pew.

Cruisers were not included in the OP's original short-list, and regardless of how tanky they are, some of us don't like giving up all that manuever and speed to imitate a Fed captain in their giant armored slugmobiles.

Not saying there's no place for heavies, just that some of us out here don't have the patience to deal with a turn rate equal to or less than 12. No matter how good the armor, shields and power levels are, cruiser driving is (for some of us) an exercise in frustration.

Keep an eye on the Fleet Vorcha then as it flies like a big escort.
