# 1 Fleet Defiant or Armitage?
12-23-2012, 10:53 PM
I don't do PvP, but I do like STFs. My toon is an engineer.

I've been flying the Defiant-R since I made VA. I was actually a subscriber then, so I got it with a token. She's been a good ship but I'm ready for something else. I've got a short stack of dilithium and my fleet just finished the tier 3 shipyard. So, now I can either get a Fleet Defiant (buy the C-Store Defiant-R and fleet module) or get an Armitage.

I'd kinda like an Armitage because I've always liked the Akira. The Akira has the same console layout, same weapons, same shield modifier, turns slightly slower, but picks up a LTCmdr Engineer slot. The Fleet Defiant has an extra tac console slot. I'd basically be paying 2500 Zen for a console slot. Would it be worth it?

If I got an Armitage should I get the Thunderchild and use both PD Consoles? Right now I'm using three Antiproton Mag Regulators Mk XI and the assimilated console. Would I take a huge hit in DPS if I dropped one of the AP Mag Regulators?

What do you guys think?

Don't look silly, don't call it "Zen-Store" - Don't waste devs time, Post proper bug-reports

Hi.

Defiant have commander and lt commander tactical boff stations and 5 tactical console slots.
That makes the Defiant better for DPS. On all charts Fleet Def is on 2nd place after Jem'Hadar Bug Ship. But in order to get best of the Defiant u need to be on Tactical Toon.

Anyway, Defiant (Fleet) is better than any other escort in STO (exept Bug).
U will live longer in it as an Engineer but do not espect to do DPS like Tactical Captain.

In addition, grab ur self free Breen and u will make same dps in it as engineer like on defiant (small difference) and dont need to pay anything for it.

Cheers.
