@ the OP
I used to run a fleet escort on my primary Tac and she was built more for consistent high level damage. Her bursts were not very spectacular, but she could keep up a lot of pressure.
Since then, I have gone down the Defiant-R route and re-specced for a more burst oriented build. At her lowest ebb, she is not as consistent as the old FE, but at her peak, she is far far more brutal.
If I had to picture it in my head, my fleet escort was like an almost flat sin wave, whereas my Defiant as a much higher amplitude, although likely the same average.
