"Geared towards colonization" sounds a tad thin if it entails adding some shuttlebays but also quite a bit of firepower. Perhaps "geared towards planetary assault" might be more like it?

Well, ships do have their wartime uses...

Conversely, a ship charged with aiding colonization efforts might have fewer tactical options (no running out on the civilians) and may be required to stand and fight more often, hence the greater firepower.
