Both are the professional uniformed armed forces of their civilizations.
You may as well compare Starfleet with the Ottoman Bashi-Bazouk if that's your criterion.

Defense first (break things and hurt people), everything else they're called on to do second.
No, Starfleet is quite explicitely an exploration/scientific fleet first, a defense force second.

15th century naval vessels and 21th century naval vessel had a few differences in equipment too.
Aha, yes, but they both used ships that sail on the sea. Starfleet doesn't.
