The JHAS is a pretty nasty ship, I'll give you that. Even in the hands of a 'meh' escort pilot it can still do a lot of damage.

The thing you really need to keep in mind is that it really is quite easy to tank to a certain degree in STO PvP. Heck, I've actually tanked Federation players in my Hegh'ta, which isn't even built for tanking (and I could if I wanted to, but that's boring) For the JHAS, it has two universal boffslots, both Lieutenant. It also has 34k hull, shield modifier of 1.0, and an impulse modifier of .22, and 4 engineering console. A skilled JHAS pilot could easily use those stats to build a very effective tanking setup for an escort-level ship. . .you just have to know how to do it, and know how to time your skill activations.

The ship itself is just a canvass. It can't do what you're talking about unless the player is good. You were probably firing into a Tactical Team 1 + TSS2/EPtS2 defense setup, or into an RSP. It's very unlikely that three ships were firing at a single target and that single target was weathering the assault without using any buffs, not unless you're a lot weaker than you think you are. You also have to think about when you're shooting. Using disabling, immobilizing, and debuffing skills helps a great deal as well.

I recommend checking out the Panda Cubs, a PvP training fleet that's maintained by the Sad Pandas (who are amongst the best of the best when it comes to PvP). They can work with you and give you some instruction as to what you're doing wrong, etc.
