I agree, the Vesta needs a slower turn rate of around 8 like the Excelsior
. Because the Vesta is a large ship. And from a gameplay viewpoint, a skilled (and full Auxillary) CPB3 burst, plus the Phaser Lance, followed by Dual Heavy Cannons and Torpedos would easily down a player in seconds (in the right hands). We see this for a long time with Bird of Preys.

All Star Trek ships had / have that capability.
Enterprise-D carried a couple of runabouts and the Enterprise-E had it's main shuttlebay of shuttles of that size.
