The Akira was RETROFITTED to carry Fighters during the dominion war as a Last ditch desperate move by the federation to employ anything that was space worthy. The Federation believes that fighters are an out dated, inefficient and ineffective ship type.

Must I show you a link to what the Designer of the akira itself classifed her as...
for gods sake she was designed to have a through way shuttle bay... She was classifed by the designer herself to be a carrier/support/torp boat. So yea you can post w/e specs you want I've already seen and read enough about the damn akira to know what she really was meant to be.
