Don't take this the wrong way, but are you set on "Attack" power settings? New ships always come set in the "balanced" power setting. I sometimes forget, and sit around scratching my head wondering why I can't kill things until I realize it's my power settings.
Also, make sure you are lined up. For an escort to work, you have to line up your firing arc. The basic mantra is "kill IT before IT kills YOU". With CRF2, things should die very quickly. Also, for best effectiveness, you need to be closer in range. Firing from 9km is not nearly as effective as firing from 4 or 5 km. There are 2 basic strategies: 1) Do a strafing run firing until you fly past the target, or 2) slow down or stop before you fly past and just tank it until your CRF buff wears off. I usually do #2, but that's personal preference.
