There's a misconception that an escort's "tankiness" comes from the flat defense bonus in PvP (in PvE I've no idea why people claim escorts are "tankier"). In truth their best form of tanking comes from using superior mobility to not take damage in the first place: stay out of range of narrow, high-damage arcs, avoid CC (Grav Wells, Warp Plasma), etc.

A properly-built Engie snoozer will outtank a Taxscort by an order of magnitude. Your run-of-the-mill escort simply doesn't have the BOff slots or the skill spec to complement real high-end tanking or healing.
