I personally think that the Bridge officers and consoles are fine imo; maybe swap one of the engineer for tactical so it makes 5 like the defiant. The cloak I don't think is necessary because that is one thing that makes the defiant unique compared to other fed ships.

I would propose - Hull: 30,000 - shield mod: 0.9 - turn rate:20

Same or slightly lower shields than other fleet escorts (that being 0.99), lower hull than all other fleet escorts, but makes up for it with the 20 turn rate.
The Armitage heavy escort carrier is supposed too be the next gen of escorts, not the Aquarius. As for our little failure, amp up the speed, make the lt.commander a uni, and then give it an inate mask energy signature. It's not a cloak then, much easier too detect, and it's not a full on BoP either. It'll be like a lighter, less stealthy, less firepower Defiant-R, advantages being uni Boff spots and it's faster.
