It depends on the amount of damage you have in the first row
before a threshold check and how quickly an enemy will push 
you past that damage amount.

Your ship is a Mass 280 ship.  Have you reduced the hull strength
from Average to Weak?  Or have you reduced the thrust from 4 to 2?
You need to do one or the other in order to accommodate the mass 
requirements of the fighter bays and missile salvo systems.
