Depends on the carrier. Vo'Quv has only 3 weapon slots forward and 3 aft. The kar'Fi has 4 forward/ 3 aft, but has slightly less health then the Vo'Quv. The missing weapon slot/slots are generally made up for though with the fighters and frigates it can launch. The Kar'Fi is getting slightly reduced damage out of their frigates because of the added weapon slot basically.

And while their hull strength is about the same as any other ship in the game, they're science centered, meaning that they have practically zero ways to heal themselves, short of being driven by an Engineer.
