So here's the situation I'm in:

I ran the Fleet Excelsior with a great deal of success using an A2B build:

4 single cannons, 4 turrets
TT1, APB1, CRF2
EPtS1, A2B1, RSP2, DEM3
EPtA1, A2B1
ET1
PH1, HE2

Then I picked up a Jem'Hadar Heavy Escort Carrier and tried to import a similar A2B build onto it:

4 single cannons, 3 turrets
TT1, APD1, CRF2, APO3
EPtS1, A2B1, DEM2
EPtA1, A2B1
ET1, RSP1
HE1

And while I thought it looked good on paper, the JHEC is vastly inferior in damage dealt (almost 30% less damage dealt, and that's being generous). I've tried swapping to DHC's up front to try and recoup some of the damage, but the damage doesn't change. What I gain in more firepower, I lose in having very low uptime on my targets. Where as the Fleet Excelsior was melting my targets and had tremendous survival, this JHEC is looking very pedestrian for damage and underwhelming me in it's defenses.

If there's an A2B build for this ship, I haven't been able to figure one out.

Any recommendations for the JHEC? I really love the look of the ship, and enjoy flying it in STF's quite a bit. It would be a shame if I had to put it on the shelf everytime I wanted to do any serious PvP. What do you think, DDIS?
