The B’Rel class is a type of Bird-of-Prey developed by the Klingon Empire in the early to mid 24th century. The design was heavily inspired, if not completely copied, by the earlier versions of the Bird-of-Prey, most notably the D-12.
The Bird-of-Prey classes of corvette all have a similar design scheme, that of a large bird swooping down on its prey. The D-12, B’Rel, and K’Vort classes are identical in configuration, but vary in size and level of technology. The B’Rel is the replacement for the D-12, eliminating obsolete technology and fixing many of the design flaws in the older design. All three feature a head with a forward mounted torpedo launcher and bridge. The head is connected to the main body by a long neck. The majority of ship systems, quarters, and cargo bays are housed in the body portion. The most notable exterior features are the large moveable wings. These wings can adjust depending on the operation of the ship. During normal flight, the wings remain horizontal. During landing operations, the wings lift upward to clear the ground. In combat, the wings lower, creating a more intimidating appearance. Fixed on the end of each wing is a Type VIII Disruptor Cannon.
