Not necessarily... imagine equipping it with 5 forward DBBs or a combination of DBBs and torpedoes. It'd be a fantastic long range artillery ship. Admittedly I'm not sure how well that would work in PvP but its pretty clear PvP considerations aren't really a top Cryptic priority unless some nasty combos work their way to PvE.

Edit: As others have said, 5 forward weapons lots makes obsolete all other escorts unless this thing is gimped in ways we can't begin to imagine. If its not properly balanced... anyone else notice this ship would be coming out as fleets begin to get to T5 shipyards, and making T5 ships obsolete?
