Welcome to the forums, good to have you aboard!
The ship classes are hardcoded into the game code and thus no new classes can be added...you can set damage to ships (gun mounts, ammo loss, steerage damage, RADAR loss, speed loss, etc) in the editor but there is no way to add new ship classes there.
To add that type of functionality I would really need to recode the entire program set since the code-base and programming tools are almost 12 years old now (BZ/DR development started in late 2002) and those would need to be changed to a more modern programming language plus tool-set; unfortunately that is not likely to happen unless/until I get a good deal of spare time.
Thanks again - if you have any more questions just ask, I will be happy to answer them.
