Class Information

Tanker variant D-5

The D-5 battlecruiser was operated by the Klingon Imperial Fleet. The D-5 was arranged with a forward command hull and an aft engineering hull with a connecting neck between them. Ships of this class were the primary patrol and sector defense ship during the 2130s through the 2140s. The tactical abilities of the D-5 quickly made it a favorite of the Officers of the imperial fleet. Several high ranking Admirals made use of the D-5 as their flag ship. In By the 2150's the D-5 were starting to show their age but the rugged design was still more than a match for the newly launched NX Class ships. Equipped with disrupters emitters and torpedoes launchers the D-5 was also equipped with a ventral mounted turret that housed twin disrupter cannons.

By the 2170s some D-5 cruisers constructed or refit to serve as tankers. In this arrangement the ventral disrupter cannons were removed and eight deuterium tanks were mounted along the ships neck. A D-5 equipped in this manner could transport up to 80,000 liters of deuterium .
