This behemoth is the Ferengi's only battleship currently in operation. Large and heavily armed and armored, it is literally the strong right arm of the reigning Grand Nagus. Built by executive order of then Grand Nagus Zek, the Kingal Heavy Battleship's sole purpose is combat. The Kingal Heavy Battleship has the distinction of being able to take on almost any other race's battleship hull and winning.
Only one Kingal Heavy Battleship had been constructed by the start of the Dominion War with a second hull started. Construction of Kingals was redoubled after the start of that war in an effort to ensure the protection of Ferenginar. After the Ferengi secured their neutral status in that conflict construction on the new Kingal hulls was slowed, with fully half of the hulls in construction being either struck or placed in mothballs for later activation.
