The Mechanic is a tier 4 support ship, provided with a passive repair in radius and an active skill of healing pods.
The Mechanic's disadvantage, when compared to The Doctor, is that its active healing power requires a constant supply of scrap. By the time players reach Tier 4 ships, it is probable that the best source of scrap will be bonus scrap from assists and kills on other Tier 4 ships. Because the Mechanic is a poor fighter on its own, it is best employed as part of a squad so that it can get assists on the kills of more capable fighters, and can repay the favor with healing.
Making formidable turret bases is basically impossible without a Mechanic on hand to undo the turrets' natural health degeneration.
