Stuck Between Classes

*Posted the same thing in PvP forums but got no response so decided I'd give it a shot here.

I took a long break from the game after leveling a Bounty Hunter (Pyrotech Powertech) and I enjoyed it. When I came back to the game I rerolled to Sniper and I've been enjoying it just as much, but I've found that I'm having a hard time picking between the two. Seeing as how neither characters are higher than level 40 I thought I would ask for the assistance of players with more experience and game time than myself.

1) Between Powertechs and Snipers am I right in assuming that the tanking class (Powertech) has much higher survivability than the Sniper?

2) Is the damage between Powertechs and Snipers similar or does one class blow the other out of the water?

3) Which class is more useful and needed in Warzones and Rated Warzones?

The above questions and any other insight I could get from the PvP community would be much appreciated.

Thanks all,

Powertechs have more survivability IF you go tank, otherwise they're about the same.

Powertechs and Snipers (along with Marauders) are the current devs lovechild, so they're extremely powerful in PvP. Keyword being currently
