Overview[edit | edit source]

K'Tanco class
The K'tanco class has a squarer design when compared to the K'tinga class. The forward command module is flatter and has an under-slung torpedo launcher. Warp nacelles are integrated into the aft engine assembly, leaving the main forward battery to be mounted on Bird-of-Prey-style feather-patterned wings.

The K'Tanco Battlecruiser has a cloak that allows the ship to cloak when not in combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The K'Tanco Battlecruiser did not exist when Star Trek Online first launched, and was added later by Cryptic in response to a lack of variety in lower tier Klingon ships.
  • When starting level for Klingon Defense Force characters was raised to Level 20 (Commander) with Season 5 release, the K'Tanco Battlecruiser was removed from the playable ship roster. With the Legacy of Romulus expansion and the reinstatement of KDF players starting at Level 1, this ship was returned to the regular playable Klingon ship roster.
