Escorts (also known as Destroyers) are smaller vessels that typical serve in the front line attack role, engaging at point blank range with forward-facing cannons and torpedoes. They typically pack a tremendous punch and have great agility and speed compared to Cruisers and Science Vessels. Escorts favor forward-facing weapons and an outstanding turning rate. However, they have a smaller crew and weaker hull and shields.
Escorts are sometimes classified as Cruisers.
