Designed for combat in the hottest fighting of the General War when even cruisers could be destroyed by one volley from the Romulan fleet. The engines are flat instead of in a V-shape to improve strength and manoeuvrability. The original Kirov variant is noted for being armed with a mix of photon torpedoes and drones, while the New Jersey has the photon firepower of a dreadnought (although its hull cannot stand the strain of firing them all at once). The Bismarck carries plasma torpedo launchers.
