Yah I do that pump all your shields to the forward section thing too, but usually there are enemy fighters buzzing around and firing on you and sometimes its hard to avoid AAAF when you're flying straight at an Aeolus on an attack run, I can take out an aeolus by myself too, but what i'm trying to say is that its one potent little ship.
I've never said that the Aeolus isn't a good ship. Infacti i like it very much.
And when i attack an Aeolus i prefer to take some power from the weapon system and give it to the engine system, so you can dodge flaks (that aren't seeking, so when they're fired they aim at your last position) and AAAF and fire (usually) the thumb-fire missiles (Agh! Forgot their name!). About the shields, I prefer keeping them up in all the 4 directions, cause if you're hit by a flak cannon, it damages from every direction.
If you've never flown trough an explosion, you've never lived.
