Designed as the General War began, the war destroyer was intended to replace the overly expensive destroyer and eventually the diminutive frigate. The ship was very modern in its design, with great detail paid to mounting the weapons efficiently. It mounted antidrones (at the time, a system the Kzintis rarely used) because these did not require power to operate and effectively replaced another pair of phaser-3s. Production of the war destroyer class was delayed by the Klingon attack that devastated the Kzinti homeworld in 2569 and the first of these ships did not reach the fleet until Y175.
This product is being done as a joint venture with Amarillo Design Bureau, inc., under the strict terms of their contract with Paramount Pictures Corporation.
