The Stratios model was recently finished and skinned on The Singularity server and a youtube video has been made detailing the beauty of this ship.

Many people are concerned that this ship has the drone capabilities of a battleship, the sig radius of a cruiser, the align time of a frigate and it can fit a covert ops cloak (allowing it to warp while cloaked) some people have called this ship “absurd”.
CCP have stated that they have designed this ship for exploration but with a possible setup like this one there are fears this ship could become a gate campers’ dream come true. Many players have compared the Stratios cruiser to that of a cloaky Proteus, but unlike the Proteus this cruiser will not lose the pilot precious skill points on death and most likely will be alot cheaper then a fully fitted t3 cruiser making it potentially the new choice for Wormhole gangs.
Many players have called for CCP to re-balance the ship due to their opinions of it being overpowered, so what about your thought? is the ship overpowered in your opinion? why? or would this perhaps create a new dynamic for small gang pvp?
