I find scouts easier to take out in my gunship than strikers.

I find it easier to farm requisition in my scout.

I can do more damage overall in my gunship, but only if the rest of team is competent. I usually start in a scout and then if the team seems solid, I'll switch to gunship.

With a scout I can fly all over the map, taking on targets of opportunity and easily disengaging if things get too hot. Likewise, if a node suddenly starts losing turrets, I can get there faster.

1 on 1 vs a striker, I'll usually die in my scout ship... but I don't have to do a 1 on 1 if I don't want to. I think that's the 'OPness' of the scout - not that they're better damage dealers or better in a fight, but that they get to choose which fight they're in.
