This escort carrier is way too tanky for such an escort, even if the turnrate has to stay the same.
The dreadnought though... I fail to see the use of such a ship. No turnrate, a massive hull and cannons. Tac abilities are useless if you can't make use of your cannons, or if you can't use cannons at all. It's like a recluse with a Cmdr tac + DHCs, i've tried this and it's lame.

fighters in a device slot...

Those Dominion Escorts are escorts in name only...
