Think of it this way.

If it takes 5 minutes to destroy a Cruiser, you'll be taking fire from four ships for 5 minutes before you destroy the frigates. If you destroy the frigates first, you'll be taking fire from four ships for 1 minute, then three for 1 minute, then two for 1 minute, and one for 5 minutes.

You'll take less damage overall by finishing off the frigates first.
