No, not quite. While there are Rear Admiral retrofits for the Cruiser and Science Vessel classes, there are no retrofit ships for the Escort class of the same rank. Technically, the Tactical Escort Retrofit is a Vice Admiral-level ship, not Rear Admiral.

I agree. I speculate that Heavy Escort Refit of the Commander tier might become that Rear Admiral Escort Retrofit...but it's anyone's guess.
