Description:

This ship was the first example of Klingon and Federation designers working together. The Vod'leq Heavy Cruiser is heavily modeled on the Akira class deployed by the Federation two years earlier. Designed, like the Akira, purely as a ship killer, the Vod'leq is built to batter enemy ships to pieces with volleys of torpedoes.

Bigger than the Akira, and lacking the advanced photon tubes of the Federation, the Vod'leq makes up for this by sheer number of tubes, and an impressive secondary disruptor armament. The Vod'leq, after an impressive performance by the prototype, was put into production. While this craft is a high profile post, and commanding one a great honor, the craft is nowhere near as versatile as the Vor'Cha, and is rarely seen outside fleet deployments.

Design Notes:


The Klingon torpedo boat, the Vod'leq Heavy Cruiser is able to put out some heavy firepower, but is itself hampered by a lack of
solid disruptor weaponry. Also, though it has more deflector shields than a standard Klingon design, it can only operate four
of them at a time.



April 2, 2003 - SCS updated, fixing several SCS errors.
