The Ning'tao Bird-of-Prey is a Commander (Tier 3) level Raider. This ship is available to Klingon Defense Force and Klingon-aligned players from the Cryptic store for 1,000 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 vulnerability make them hard to hit. Also, the Bridge Officer spaces on a Bird-of-Prey are mostly universal, which makes them more versatile.

The Ning'tao-class Bird-of-Prey offers a significant improvement over the standard Norgh-class Raider. The new Ning'tao-class Refit was built with a split wing design to accommodate its Quad Cannons.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - KDF - Norgh Bird-of-Prey (T3).png
The Norgh-class is aesthetically very similar to the QulDun Bird-of-Prey. However the ship features a much wider wing arc and an elongated bridge section. The Norgh also features the traditional Bird-of-Prey feather pattern on the wings, reappearing after their absence on the QulDun-class.
Ship Variant - KDF - Ning'tao Bird-of-Prey (T3).png
Distinctly visually different from the Norgh, the Ning'tao-class shows clear Nausicaan and Orion design influences, boasting a more insectile look than the sleek curves of the Norgh. The ship commands a unique wingspan along with the traditional curves of previous Birds-of-Prey.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Battle Cloak

The Ning'tao 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

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 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.

Special Features[edit | edit source]

The Ning'tao Bird-of-Prey comes equipped with the [Disruptor Quad Cannons [Dmg]x4] which draw power from ship's engines to deal massive damage. These cannons scale with the player and may be equipped on any ship supporting cannons. However, only one Quad Cannon may be equipped per ship.

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.
