You need to decide if you want beams or cannons, you're only packing one DHC so that cannon rapid fire is imo wasted, speaking if that DHC can you fit 2 or 3 of the aux powered DHC on one ship?

Also posting a screenie of your skill set up or writing out your skills so we can see what you have would help people give better suggestions, no point me saying attack patterns if you're not specced for them.

I'm afraid you are mistaken. Above a certain threshold, speed has no effect whatsoever on your defense rating.

And you can't avoid such issues by using, idk, Combat Impulse Engines.
