This seems normal to me for both the vessel types and the fact that you play at elite.
- Reduce NPC hull/shield strength to make battles shorter. What is the strength of a Nicor Cruiser? something like 40,000 shield and 100,000 hull?
I agree, upping the survivabilty of NPC's does not make for better combat. Instead upgrade the AI to use abilities and tactics better.
All in all I fail to see the "balance" issues you seem to think exist. At Elite difficulty such missions should play out as you have described for each vessel as you described.
If it is too hard try dropping to advanced or adjusting your ship loadouts.
