Why do tac officers seem to COMPLETELY waste so much damage potential by flying something other then an escort?

In some cases the reports of escorts being "OP" are exaggerated. Don't get me wrong, Escorts do more damage than Cruisers or Science ships, no doubt, but the margin isn't as great as some people want to believe.

A Tac in a properly built cruiser, carrier, science ship etc can still do remarkable damage, because a lot of the power in the Tac/Escort combo is the Tac.

APA makes everything hit hard, not just cannons.
