Yeah, my main is a Tac and I used the VA Galaxy class for a while. Loved it, but even with consoles, it was still a PITA to turn, and separating left me exposed with a much weaker secondary hull. I switched to the Excelsior Retrofit at that point. It handled better, had higher DPS, but I still wasn't getting the best performance I could. I've now switched over to my Sovereign, and I love it, but still, it's more than a bit underpowered. That said, I'm not getting an Escort because Jesus Christ
I can't afford any more ships.
