GoodNot Good
Highest hull hardness in the game, so you take the least hull damage.It’s rare to get all of the hardpoints on target at once.
Turret Builds.It’s a giant space brick. Slow and ponderous to turn.
Has a fighter hangar.It was supposed to be a large AX ship, and you can use it for that, but it’s not nearly as good as it should be for AX.
Great cockpit view.Other ships in its class perform their roles much better.
Ramming damage is like a well thrown brick.
Highest hypothetical DPS by total hardpoints in the game, but…

Hardpoint Notes

Grouping hardpoints into 3 groups (left 2L1M, center 1M2S, right 2L1M)
improves convergence at medium and long range.
