In the ENT-continuity were not the weapons ranges fairly short, even for the advanced Vulcans and Andorians? They might have had "advanced tech" relative to the Earth fleet, but with short weapons ranges having small fighting craft (like fighters) might be necessary for early stand-off.
Only Starfleet's weapons ranges were ever stated canonically, and then only for plasma cannons, with an effective range of about 5km. Vulcans and Andorians both used some kind of heavy particle beams with ranges in the tens to hundreds of kilometers during the 22nd century.
