I know the MMSV is a new classification (possibly the Vesta), and the Carrier is obviously the Atrox. Logic suggests, then, that the Escort Carrier is what's currently named the Heavy Escort Carrier. I'll then assume that the classification for the Heavy Escort Carrier should now instead be "Escort Carrier" but the change wasn't made on the ship status screen (at least).

I'm seeing no problems with equipping the hangar pets, so I assume the same is true for weapons like Dual-Heavy Cannons (which also show up as red text where it lists what ships it can be used on).
It seems that they decided that the Heavy Escort Carrier is of a new class "Escort Carrier", this leaves them open to make a Light Escort Carrier of other vessel of the same class.

I've noticed that items will have names in red for the ships it will not go on but no color for the ships it can go on. This is most noticable with kits where all the KDF are listed now but in red on a Fed character.
