The Uni-T viral missions so far are pretty soft (I get the feeling that was largely the intent, at least after reading the readme file), very fun missions for when I don't really want to work too hard for my victories. :) And I love the graphic adjustments made to the vanilla GSB ships to corrupt them. (Took me a bit to see what exactly was giving me the impression of weirdness on those things.)
Your spot on, the Viral ships are weaker than the ships they are based on. The idea is more strenght through numbers (and extra firepower) however, i feel i dont have enough ships in those various missions - however the false sense of security will serve Uni-T well in the next set of missions.

I expect them to be brain-explodingly awesome. (I ran this exclusively with the Matmos Rift; I choose to take the fact that I had to change tactics a few times to mean that the mods in question are reasonably balanced. YMMV.)
Thats good to know - hopefully the last mission will give you that epic feeling :)

This is the only place i feel that the mod falls down, due to the various modules and weapons, it is possible to create the rare ultimate killer combination. One day, when i get some free time i will patch that last hole in the mod which will stop the player making that uber ship.

Thats good the know - The whole idea was to challange the player, not have the situation where their uber steamroller fleet will conqure all. The various ships / weapons were designed with a similar concept to Rock / paper / sissors . . however there are times when someone rocks up with a tactical nuke and it all goes out the window
