Well.. Escorts are the primary burst ship.

That said:

A Cruiser can DPS and be survivable
A Cruiser can Heal and be survivable
A SV can Heal and be survivable
A SV can CC and be survivable

A Escort can DPS and run (or die)

A escort 20k from the nearest enemy does no DPS
A dead escort does no DPS

All I see most escorts do, is capitalize on targets allready engaged by 1 or more DPS cruisers.. Without the SVs to stun their targets and Cruisers to keep their shields low, few, if any, escorts can kill a good cruiser by themselves.
