The Ch'tang-class Bird-of-Prey is a Captain (Tier 4) level Raider. This ship is available to Klingon Defense Force and Klingon-aligned players from the Cryptic store for 1,500 Zen small icon.png.

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.

General Martok commanded the I.K.S. Ch'Tang during his raid on Trelka V in 2375, during which a small force destroyed a Dominion starbase. The Ch'Tang-class Bird-of-Prey honors that ship and its crew.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - KDF - Ki'tang Bird-of-Prey (T4).png
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
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.

Battle Cloak

The Ch'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

Light Escorts, Raiders, and Scout Ships come with a built-in passive damage boost available when striking an enemy's rear arc. To make up for the flimsy nature of Raider-type vessels, and 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.
