Destroyers - DDG

Description
DDG 51 and DDG 1000 destroyers are warships that provide multi-mission offensive and defensive capabilities. Destroyers can operate independently or as part of carrier strike groups, surface action groups, amphibious ready groups, and underway replenishment groups.


Frigates - FFG:

Description
Frigates fulfill a Protection of Shipping (POS) mission as Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) combatants for amphibious expeditionary forces, underway replenishment groups and merchant convoys.


So our escort class is more akin to destroyers than frigates. “If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, it must be a duck”. I guess I'll do what I usually do when Star Trek makes mistakes and mentally jigger the type to destroyer. Thanks
