The Tactical Cube is a more heavily armed and armored version of the standard Borg Cube. Tactical Cubes are the only vessels in use by the Borg that have structures that can be determined to have a use. Those structures are the large armor plates that cover the majority of the Cubes outer hull. Also the interiors of the tactical cubes are know to utilize multi-regenerative security fields to protect it's central plexus, a device utilized by all Borg vessels to link that ship and the drones on those vessels to the hive mind of the collective.
While no ship of this type has been observed operating in or near Federation Space multiple Tactical Cubes were observed by the Crew of the USS Voyager while in the Delta Quadrant. The tactical nature of these cubes has led them to be primarily used only in combat situations and not acts of assimilation. Most notably the Tactical Cubes have seen use in the conflict between the Borg Collective and Species 8472.
