The Bortasqu' Tactical Cruiser is a Lieutenant General (Tier 5) level Battle Cruiser. This ship is available to Klingon Defense Force and Klingon-aligned players from the Cryptic store for 2,500 Zen small icon.png, or as part of the Bortasqu' Bundle for 5,000 Zen small icon.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Improving on the powerful Bortas Battle Cruiser, the Bortasqu'-class Tactical Cruiser features additional tactical capabilities.

The Bortasqu'-class Battle Cruiser are the largest, most powerful battle cruisers in the Klingon arsenal. Their massive hulls afford them incredible resilience in battle, but they sacrifices turn rate for their bulk. The Bortasqu' Tactical Cruiser comes with a standard cloaking device, but its massive energy signature means the cloak is less effective than it would be on a smaller vessel. The Bortasqu' Tactical Cruiser is designed to take on any foe no matter how powerful, and because of that is designed with versatility in mind.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - KDF - Bortasqu' Battlecruiser (T5).png
The first in a new generation of Klingon starships, the original Bortasqu'-class introduced various weapons and technologies that would be used in the design of other powerful warships in the future. The ship features many armored sections and recessed bussard collectors.
Ship Variant - KDF - Gorkon Science Battlecruiser (T6).png
SKIN UNLOCK: Gorkon Science Battlecruiser, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
Of all the Klingon Flagships the Gorkon-class most closely resembles the original Bortasqu'-class. Compared to its predecessor, the ship is somewhat flatter in design. Instead of one larger warp nacelle, the Gorkon has three, circularly-oriented nacelles on the tip of each wing.
Ship Variant - KDF - Kahless War Battlecruiser (T6).png
SKIN UNLOCK: Kahless War Battlecruiser, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
Like other Klingon Bortasqu'-class Flagships, the Kahless-class is lathered in weapons, features powerful engines and enough space for all the multi-purpose war-time goodness. While based on the original design for the Bortasqu', the ship also shares similarities with the Mogh Battle Cruiser.
Ship Variant - KDF - Martok Tactical Battlecruiser (T6).png
SKIN UNLOCK: Martok Tactical Battlecruiser, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
A tactical variant, the Martok-class is a bit more slender and aggressive when compared to its sister classes. A set of four big cannons on the front of this ship helps bring out a bit more of the "battle" in the battlecruiser classification.
