The Miranda class has a turn rate of 11.4, while the Defiant has 17. Comparatively, the Defiant turns on a dime while the Miranda does a 3 point turn in the parking lot. Unlike the Miranda, the Defiant's stats were built with cannons in mind. While the Miranda can use cannons, the lower turn rate makes it much harder to get into the 45 degree fire arc that the cannons have. The Defiant has zero problems doing this.
