Sigh... another one that doesn't read, but shoots his mouth off instead.
So yes, fighters and seamen with fighter stats are worth it as elites.
If you followed the thread, you'd arrive at the conclusion that engineers are not really worth it.
The ones that ARE worth it that you didn't take into account are REPAIRERS. The repair cap is so far away (35 mill TA) that elite repairs are always a good investment.
