Phaeton's need buffs

OP adblackhawk

I got the certification for the phaeton and I was ecstatic only to find out the thing sucks. It lacks in firepower and health I mean come on a load out weapon can destroy it no problem. Give it a shield or health boost and give the main cannons a slight buff. Phaetons suck in normal warzone and firefight especially for a legendary req.
Are you sure it's not just your piloting skill that's screwing you over? Because I've faced Phaetons before and they can do a lot of damage. Hell, earlier today I saw a Phaeton on the enemy team take out one of our Banshees.
The normal phaeton isn't great but the phaeton helios is just nasty.
Being a good pilot is crucial to using vehicles.
