T'Larr Heavy Bird of Prey
Description:
The T'Larr Heavy Bird of Prey was an engineering experiment by the Klingon Defense Forces to build a larger, better equipped Bird of Prey type vessel that could take on the heavy cruisers of foreign navies.

T'Larr Heavy Birds of Prey are capable of delivering crushing alpha strikes to their opponent through a combination of heavy photon torpedoes and medium disruptors. Armed with a level of firepower that would have classified it as a battleship in the previous centure, the T'Larr is more than capable of going toe-to-toe with Federation and Romulan capital ships.

The costs of building T'Larr Heavy Birds of Prey have limited their construction quantities. Most of the T'Larrs that have been built to date are maintained on the Romulan border where they are better suited to handling encounters with Romulan warbirds.

Design Notes:
In one of the TNG Romulan episodes, the Klingons send three birds of prey to assist the Enterprise-D should they get in trouble. In that battle the Klingon birds of prey appear much larger than normal when decloaked. After rewatching the episode I decided that yet another BOP variant was in order.
