Your standard BA at 125 weapons power will hit for ~ 800-1000 damage (again dependent on consoles etc). So all things considered, two BAs vs a DHC + turret are about equal (~1600-2k vs ~ 1700-2300). UNTIL YOU BRING POWER DRAIN INTO THE EQUATION.
Also need to factor in the narrower firing arc of DHCs vs BAs. BAs can maintain fire on a target longer while Escorts will need to maneuver to keep their cannons on target.
