Well, one of the reasons for that is that appearently ships "grow" with each tier (for the most part) and as a result high-level escorts/raptors/BoPs dwarf lower-level cruisers.

So at least keeping that in mind it does make sense that the Advanced Escort as a rather "large" vessel compared to the lower-level cruisers is not actually a cruiser but an escort.

What I find odd is that the old Excelsior outperforms the much newer Cheyenne and her "cousins" in nearly every way.
