I assume by "other games" you mean Armada.
That it had half the firepower of a Defiant in that game was mostly because the pulse cannon was the smallest weapon available in that game.

Another look at this would be: it was as well armed as the Romulan scout from "The Defector" that seemed to be pretty much like a Romulan Runabout, given its size.

Does it really need to be "better"?
Wouldn't it be enough if it were different?
Between the Runabout with an Impulse Mod of 0.2 and a turnrate of 24 and the Peregrine with an Impulse mod of 0.3 and a turnrate of 33, there's as whole lot of room Cryptic can play with.

Unfortunately I think Cryptic wasted a chance to sell another KDF shuttle with the reskin of the Toron.
