The Aberax Destroyer is one of the Cardassians more common destroyer designs. Although not as large as the Galor Cruiser, the Aberax carries a substantial amount of firepower for a ship of its size. This includes four light photon torpedo launchers, more than is common on Cardassian designs.
Aberax Destroyers are usually deployed in wings of three to five destroyers and used as combat support for larger, slower cruisers. Such tactics were very effective against Federation units during the Federation/Cardassian War and the Dominion War.
