Pretty much what was said above. Your current strategy is much more suited to a cruiser than an escort. Escorts should definitely outfit cannons. Besides which, with the escorts paper-thin hull and shields, you don't want to be engage in a long slugfest. You have to finish it quickly, because you don't have the armor to stay in there for long periods. Doing whatever you can to keep them into your forward firing arc, and therefore being able (mostly) to just reinforce that forward shield is your best bet.
