The Ki'tang-class Bird-of-Prey is a Tier 4 (Level 30) Raider which may be flown by Klingon Defense Force characters, including Klingon Empire-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters.

Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 10,000 Refined dilithium icon.png.  

This ship can also be obtained by Klingon Empire players for free upon reaching level 30 by using their free SRKDF4.png Starship Requisition token.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Birds-of-Prey are small, fast and fill a variety of roles for the Empire. They can be used as scouts, raiders or patrol ships. They're vulnerable when cloaked, but their speed and maneuverability make them hard to hit. Also, the Bridge Officer spaces on a Bird-of-Prey are mostly universal, which makes them more versatile.

During the second Battle of Chin'toka in 2375, the I.K.S. Ki'tang was the only ship not affected by the Breen energy dampening weapon. The Klingon Defense Force honors the cunning and ferocity of its crew with the Ki'tang-class Bird-of-Prey.

Class variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - KDF - Ki'tang Bird-of-Prey (T4).png
Ki'tang class
The Ki'tang class has a very angular design and a much narrower wing-span than the lower tier Birds-of-Prey. The ship has a very-stripped down look, more reminiscent of the QulDun class than the Norgh class Bird-of-Prey.
Ship Variant - KDF - Ch'Tang Bird-of-Prey (T4).png
Ch'Tang class
SKIN UNLOCK: Ch'Tang Bird-of-Prey, 1,500 Zen small icon.png
The Ch'Tang variant has a very staggered wingspan and foreign hull extremities, giving it a more insect look than previous Birds-of-Prey. This Bird-of-Prey design was clearly influenced by engineers of the factions allied to the Klingon Defense Force.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Battle Cloak

The Ki'tang-class Bird-of-Prey has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Raider Flanking

Frigates, Light Escorts, Raiders, and Scout Ships come with a built-in passive damage boost available when striking an enemy's rear arc. To support their high turn rate and maneuverability, standard raider flanking grants:

  • +25% damage to NPC enemy when attacking rear arc.
  • +8.25% damage to Player enemy when attacking rear arc.

Standard configuration[edit | edit source]

Klingon starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.
