The following information of specifications and defenses comes exclusively from the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual:

* Production Base: ASDB Integration Facility, Antares Fleet Yards, Antares IV.
* Type: Heavy Cruiser.
* Accommodation: 500 officers and crew; 4,500 personal evacuation limit.
* Power Plant: One 1,500 plus Cochrane warp core feeding two nacelles; one impulse system.
* Dimensions: Length, 464.43 meters; beam, 316.67 meters; height, 87.43 meters.
* Mass: 3,055,000 metric tonnes.
* Performance: Warp 9.8 for 12 hours.
* Armament: Six type-10 phaser emitters; two photon torpedo launchers.

The Akira was RETROFITTED to carry Fighters during the dominion war as a Last ditch desperate move by the federation to employ anything that was space worthy. The Federation believes that fighters are an out dated, inefficient and ineffective ship type.
