# 1 K'Tanco Retrofit Idea
12-03-2012, 05:25 PM
I've seen several post lamenting the fact that the KDF has no real answer to the Armitage (Heavy Escort Carrier). Since the fleet system arrived and showed that the devs would consider reusing older assets and since the K'Tanco isn't really seen in game with the KDF starting above the levels where you would use it, how about using a retrofitted K'tanco as a Battle Cruiser Carrier?

Stats: K'Tanco Retrofit Class Light Battlecarrier

The K'Tanco class was a smaller cruiser that saw limited engagement in the early stages of the Federation-Klingon War. The ever-crafty Qo'nos Shipyards have upgraded the basic K'Tanco space frame; however, the size of the K'Tanco limits its abilities as a fleet cruiser, so it has been retooled as a sturdy raptor-type vessel. The internal volume that was freed up by installing more modern systems has been allocated to a Hangar bay, allowing the retrofitted K'Tanco's to carry a single squadron of fighters (or any other non-Fek'lhri hangar item).

Fore Weapons: 4 / Aft Weapons : 3
Hull: 35,000
Shield Modifier: .9
Impulse Modifier: .18
Turn Rate: 13
Inertia rating : 40
Device Slots: 3
Consoles: 3 Eng, 2 Sci, 4 Tac
Hangar Slots: 1 (1 squad of To'Duj Fighters stock)
Bridge Officers: Commander Tactical, Lt. Commander Engineering, Lt. Tactical, Lt. Science, Ensign Engineering
+10 Weapon Power, +10 Engine Power

Wide-Angle Quantum Torpedo Launcher [Arc][Acc][CrtH] (the same torpedo as on the Regent, to provide a way for KDF Captains to acquire it)
Quantum Resonance Generator: Fires a Quantum Resonance Charge, deals no damage, but severely degrades a shield's performance (-50% Shield Damage Resistance for 10 seconds, magnitude boosted by flow capacitors, duration boosted by Aux power)

Fleet Version would add the standard +10% to Hull/Shield and +1 Eng Console

Now this is really just bouncing a idea of the wall, but what is everyone's thoughts on this? Too powerful? Too weak? A start at adding more KDF ship options? The KDF could use a tactical carrier, and it seems to be a shame to not use the K'tanco skin any more.
