It is definitely Dutch Vander. The restrictions on his support ability are easier to manage than Garvin's, and generating Target Locks is stronger than a focus. He is also a great support ship by bringing Ion to your squad to set up for future Target Locked attacks. Since he uses a turret and Garvin does not, he can fly out of formation and turn instead of K-turning while passing Target Locks to friendly K-turners that turn.
Which is the better support ship? Kyle, Garven, Roark or Dutch?

I love Roark. For 24 points you have an Ion Turret that passes PS12 in the combat phase. Brilliant!

I love Dutch throw in R5K6 and if you are lucky its TLs for everyone.
Roark is also very good value, and with range 3 support his ability gets plenty of play.
