I can agree with that, right now 4 dual beam have barely more dps than 4 single canon, even if their firing arc is 90? versus 180? beam power issue is that bad.

Second issue is the lack of beam version of the turrets you can't do good dps is you can't use your boss ability on your rear weapons

Just a quick note, I'll be increasing the turn rate on the Jem'Hadar Heavy Escort Carrier from 12 to 13 soon. Not sure when this will make it live.

Don't forget to lower the shield modifier and hull hit points to compensate.....

wow from 12 to 13... Can we have an explanation why this is called an ESCORT? Turn rate of a fast cruiser, boff layout of a cruiser, consoles like a fleet excelsior... At least make that lt.cmdr a uni slot....

Yeah really 1 isn't enough, needs 2. The Fleet HEC which is pretty much the same ship minus a bit of different layout, has a turn of 15!

Same thing except for it has more than 2k hull, a very slight higher shield mod, 150 more crew, and 5 less weapon power for 5 more aux and shield power.

I would say its a little more than the same ship.

Whats the firing rate of DBBs? 4 shots per cycle or less, because frankly I find them ok.

Interesting.

It seems to look very much like the Breen BC at this point, and less like an escort. Although 3 rear weapons as opposed to 4.

What can I say talking to the trolling feds on certain subjects finally caused my temper to flare back up. Couple that with certain aspects of STO in general and my BS meter had reached its apex. I needed a time out, so I took some time.
