I love this ship. It's turn is fantastic for a Cruiser, obviously the cannons are superb and the BoFF slots are great, just wish it has that extra Lt.Cmd. Tac spot but not a big deal. Especially for free i'm really impressed overall. I'm having a hard time trying to decide what loadout to use on it however, curious to see what the community thinks is a good fitment for this ship. Using the Breen Eng/Def/Shield set, for weapons at the moment I'm trying something like this:

Fore: 1x Polaron Dual Beam Bank, 1xPolaron DHC, 1xBreen RRL Transphasic Launcher, 1xBreen Transphasic Cluster Torp

Aft: 2xDominion Polaron Beam Arrays, 2xBreen RRL Transphasic Launchers

I keep a Scorpion Fighters in one of the Device slots just in case, and am also using 1xTachyokinetic Console(makes the turn even more superb), 1xAssimilated Console, and 1xZero Point console with 1xNeutronium and of course the Breen Console that comes with it. The final console slot aside from the Tac's I'm unsure of and bounce between a PDS, Isometric Charge or Field Emitter/Plasma or something. Tactical console its usually either 3xPolaron Phase and 1xTransphasic or a 2/2 mix of both.

This seems to work pretty good, but I'm sure there's something better. What are you running?

I've been using modified Cruiser loadouts. It turns a lot faster than a real cruiser, but other than that it's about the same. (except you have only 3 Boff slots you can use for Eng skills.)

I recently started dabbling with using Mine Dispersal Pattern Beta and Tricobalt mines. It's loads of fun! Strafing cubes and dumping 4 tricobalt mines on top of them is awesome!
HAIL HYDRA!

I'm running a building using mostly just mission reward gear. I'm using the 2 piece Breen set for the Transphasic damage bonus. But I'm using an Advanced Fleet Mk XII shield. A normal shield is a bit too fragile for STFs for my taste.

I'm using 2x Rapid Reload Mk XI Transphasic Torpedo launchers and 2x Plasma Disruptor Hybrid Beam Arrays. Aft, I'm usig 2x Plasma Disruptor Hybrid Beam Arrays, the Transphasic Torpedo Cluster and a purple Transphasic Mine Launcher. With Tac consoles split between Disruptor and Transpasic

For BOFFS, I'm using the Breen Tractical Officer (as is) in the Commander Tac station. And then TSS Shield II, FAW I, and TT I. And Lt Cmdr Science is either HE III, TSS II and PH I or TSS I, HE II and GW II.

I'm glad someone mentioned using the Dispersal PAttern Delta III skill on the Breen BOFF. APD III with Transphasic Mines and the Breen Tranapshic Torpedo Cluster pack one heck of a whallop. It's hellaciously fun. I can literally pummel a target to death while they shields are still up.

So far I do damage passes with Torps and Beam arrays and TTS Shields II to soften things up. And then follow up with a 2 walls of mines.
