I think that many of the specialized DE roles will be taken over by CR sized vessels, we already have a CR ER section. I can see a CR tanker class it could be like the refinery we have now but slightly cheaper without the refine fuel ability with the Support DN taking over the traditional refinery role.
I think we may see many DE roles switched to CR mission or command section roles. Jammer and WW command sections would be nice. The DE class will be mostly combat support (PD, Armor, Torp, Spinal, etc) like oversized drones, or I could be totaly wrong, just wait and see!
