No it wasn't. In fact, it's not even implied to be the most advanced in the fleet.
Pike says "newest flagship" and it didn't even get christened yet. That and the design, compared to the other ships, certainly implies it.

More to the point, even if it WAS the most powerful -- which TOS gives no indication whatsoever that this was even remotely the case -- that still doesn't imply "biggest."
No, but based on the evidence we have, it's more probable than not, in my opinion.

"Is probably the biggest" doesn't follow from that conclusion, since modernity and largeness are mutually exclusive.
Granted. My mistake.
