These vessels served as a lighter version of the Jem'Hadar battleship with it being faster and more maneuverable. Due to its higher turn rate, the heavy escort's main weapon system was more forward facing. As a result, a typical tactic employed against them was staying outside their forward firing arc. A Jem'Hadar heavy escort was considered a rough equivalent to a Federation Escort or a Klingon Raptor.
