Dover fall to bits when confronted with flak cannons, one magazine from a Trafalgar and they're history.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I do believe Corvette optimal weapons range is outside of all Destroyer's max flak range.
Yes, optimal as in not getting shot down. But less optimal for doing damage, since the DPS of your main guns drops when you fly outside of flak cannon range. The trick is to do 2-3 passes while staying far enough. Or be sneaky to strike once from close range before the enemy switches to flaks.
As for your original point about switching the corvettes starting tiers, it is an interesting idea. That might have positive effect on balancing recruit. Making it to work with current layout of starting fleet/manufacturers, might take some work.
