I get my rudder shot out more often on this ship than any other. Dropping Engine Boost Mod 1 for Steering Gears Mod 1 helped a little, but it is horrifying to be kiting away, lighting things on fire, when suddenly you start turning in a circle... right in front of the ships you've been setting on fire and pissing off.
1 skill point will buy me Preventative Maintenance. Will that help much?
I assume Last Stand would help - that's what Blyskawica and others with fragile butts really need. I just hate to spend 2 skill points on LS for a cruiser. However, I really want the longer engine boost back!
