If they are mass 2 they should be covered by the standard rules
Afterall, a Corvette is only mass 6 and would not hold everything you

I would counter-propose the following:
Gunboat Mk 2
Mass:	6 (3 boats and bay)
Cost:  18
Speed: 10

Gunboats have 3 ships per squadron. They carry a mini-pulse torpedo.
hits on 4+ and does 1d6/2 (round up) damage (ignore screens). Gunboats
destroyed by 2 points of *daf damage or 1 point of damage from a C beam
penalty to hit). Gunboats engage fighters and missiles as attack
Gunboats follow normal fighter endurance and morale rules.

Good ideas! i was actually thinking of them as being about like a 
heavy fighter (greater ruggedness but lesser maneuverability kind of 
cancelling each other out.) I like the idea of bigger beam mounts 
engaging them in desperation and hitting on a 6..."
