Komo Var Torpedo Battlecruiser
Description:
With the Klingon High Command finally realizing that there was no hope of matching the Federation's Excelsiors with their own Komo Vals ship for ship, and with the venerable C-18 Dreadnought being upgraded to the K'Shen and filling the duties of the Komo Val nicely, it was decided that the Komo Val hull could be better utilized in another role. Noting the lack of a dedicated torpedo cruiser hull in their order of battle since the somewhat lackluster K'T'amar design of 2271, the High Command chose to refit the Komo Val to fill this role.

Choosing to throw subtlety and caution to the wind, the Komo Val had its entire medium disruptor complement replaced with four Heavy Photon Torpedoes, bringing the total to eight with six of them firing forward. The light disruptor complement was retained in a weak concession to defensive concerns. The resulting Komo Var Battlecruiser was a fearsome addition to the Klingon battle line and would inspire other dedicated torpedo ships such as the Torath Torpedo Cruiser and the Vod'leq Heavy Cruiser.
