Torath Torpedo Cruiser
Description:

Built as a prototype for a heavily modified Vor'Cha before the Dominion war, the Torath Torpedo Cruiser proved to be a valuable addition to the Klingon fleet. While this ship is a rare sight in Klingon fleets due to the expense, it is often seen reinforcing Vor'Cha squadrons, providing them with more stand off firepower from its large torpedo armament.

The Torath keeps the mega disruptor of the Vor'Cha, and a medium disruptor firing aft, but trades its heavy disruptors and forward firing mediums for more torpedoes. With two forward heavy tubes and four medium tubes it can quickly collapse the shields of even the largest ship and cause critical damage. The class proved particularly successful against Cardassian Galor class craft in the Dominion war. While it sacrifices heavy disruptor power it gains an additional four light disruptors to intercept enemy fire and provide the ship with short range crunch ability.

This ship cannot stand up to an enemy cruiser at close range, but excels at its assigned role, long ranged sniping of key enemy ships.
