In some ways yes they are and in others they are not. For example artillery cruisers are just free kills for vettes since an artillery cruiser stands little chance against an experienced vette pilot. Vettes are ok at attacking healers but the cattaro can tear a vette apart with its deadly accurate beams. Finally vettes are kind of useless against most destroyers and dreadnoughts unless they catch them when they are low on health.
Vettes are flies for experienced Arty Pilots as well.
With 2 experienced players, I'd say it's 50:50 depending on the loadout of both.
As for attacking healers, IMO the Vulcan with plasma ram is unbeatable at this.
Oh, and don't think vettes are useless against dreads or DD's. You usually can kill any average dread/DD pilot 1vs1 with a corvette just fine.
