There's a lot of fleet ships that don't make a whole lot of sense. Just look at the fleet Ning'tao BoP, tier III shipyard required and it's utterly useless!
It's got less hull than the frikking B'rel retrofit, minus the advanced battle cloak, and it turns slower! The Ki'tang class you get for free at captain rank has more health, and this is meant to be a premium tier 5 ship for a Lieutenant General.

Yep, there are useless ship on both sides.
Just compare the Fleet Saber with the Fleet Patrol Escort and you get the impression those stats are totally arbitrary nonsens thrown together without the least bit of thinking.

Yeah, some of these ships really trip me out. Why, other than casual RP, would someone buy the Fleet Saber or the Aquarius Escort? Those ships are paper. They're Captain rank ships at best. What purpose will they serve in PVP, in an STF, in Fleet Events? They have no advantages; no pros to balance out their cons. And they cost $20? Nah. No thanks.

Nign'tao has to be worst of any fleet ship except maybe the Aquarius escort...so both feds and kdf have a very oddball ship.

In this case we have a ship that has less hull than some shuttles.

The ship sucks its papper plane without having enough punch.

If u ask me its totaly useless ship thats was a big FAIL cryptic made.

I await for an update where they will raise hull from 16k to at least 24 and shield modifier also from 0.6 to 0.8 at least otherwise REMOVE THAT BLOODY SHIP!

These "deficiencies" are then compensated with the 10th console slot. So in my book, Fleet versions of the lowest Tier ships are very much comparable to regular good old "free" Tier 5 ships. Nothing less, nothing more.
That's what I have to say on the subject of some fleet ships.

But let me explain something about the Norgh BoP retrofit (called Ning'tao before). While it has the hull and shields comparable to those of shuttles (if there were any on KDF side...), it can also use 3 Lt. Comm. abilities and 1 Comm., of any career. Not saying it's a good tradeoff, but it offers 12 better boff slots, unlike any other BoP.

Oh, and speaking specifically about the Somraw, it makes me sad as well. I would have loved to get the fleet one as a "tougher" replacement for my hegh'ta, but since it would actually have worse shields, it's a no-go.

My fleet D7 says that the shield mod is .94. The BG Vorcha says it has 1. Using the same gear on both ships same captain also, the D7 has 115% of the shields of the BG Vorcha.

So somethings not right there. It should be around what.....94% of the BG Vorcha.

I have no explanation.

To encourage you to purchase the Fleet version
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.

That is strange, nice to know the fleet K'Tinga is better than advertised. I wanted to get one of those to annoy all the fed players moaning about no tier 5 connie! (dress it as a D7, say "Look at my T5 original series ship!")
