Where to start?

I fly the Fleet Tor'Kaht, HoH'SuS, Krenn Destroyer and Fleet Scourge on my Tactical character. I fly the Korath Science Vessel and Vo'Quv on my Science. Bortasqu' on my Engineer (when not in the Recluse). Kar'Fi on my 2nd KDF Tactical. Negh'var on my 2nd KDF Engineer and finally a B'rel Retrofit on my 3rd KDF Tac. I love most Klingon ships

I did try the Qin and later Fleet Qin for my 1st Tac, but I didn't like the Turn Rate so I kept swtiching to that and the other ships I listen... probably gonna settle on the Fleet Tor'Kaht for now on my KDF Tac. I was always searching and asking for a KDF equivelent to the Armitage, but I believe the Fleet Tor'Kaht will do just fine as an equal, because, whilst it's not an Escort and is a Battlecruiser, it's DPS is incredible with the right combination (especially with DHC's) and it's survivability is even more impressive (though it comes to no surprise considering it is basically a Cruiser).

But I use my other ships also. I like to use my Korath for supporting other KDF vessel, but I am just as happy to fly the Vo'Quv to do the same thing, only in a different way. I tend to use the B'Rolth BoP's in the hanger slots with mainly survivability stuff equipped to my Carrier.

Bortasqu' I find to be an underestimated ship. I believe it be a monster, with the right combo, that thing can be so dan tanky, it's actually unreal, whilst pumping out some pretty decent DPS at the same time (believe me, I've tried and it works briliiantly). Negh'var? I love the Negh'var because it's an iconic ship, whilst it may be the more tanky between it and the Vor'cha, there's no reason why the Negh'var lacks DPS, it's just a damn sight more survivable than the Vor'cha.

I love using the Kar'Fi for one reason and one reason only - power draining. Enough said I think? . The B'rel I use on my final KDF Tac because I wanted to fly a Bird-of-Prey, but I love the B'rel and it's abilities of EBC and it incredible customisation options.

Are we counting all KDF ships, not just Klingon ones?

Because the guramba is pure sex... it's an escort! It's a cruiser! It's a transformer robot hiding in Star Trek!

Plus a wave motion gun!

Man. Fun ship.

I should look into the trics and chronitons. I wouldn't have room for abilities to support 'em, but they might be more useful than the pair of turrets I carry in the rear.
I have Torpedo Spread 2 to go with the Chronitons so that they slow down any pursuit

The tricobalt Mine I use to run with Dispersal Pattern Beta 1, but I replaced with with Torp Spread 2 in exchange for an extra Tac Team

I'm probably going to be branded as crazy because of this, but i love the Bortasqu' Tactical Cruiser. De-cloaking and opening up a volley of 4 DHCs and 4 Turrets, then the Autocannon is simply amazing. I've saved dozens of almost failed optionals in Infected Elite. And in PvP, it remains almost unbeatable in a 1v1 fight. Tanks well, turns ok for a cruiser, and has an immense amount of fire-power. My fleet-mates see it as a complement from the Borg if they manage to pull aggro from a target I'm firing upon.

I also fly a Vo'Quv on my other toon, who can effectively tank against 3 ships at once, whilst dishing out damage with my 4 little B'Rolths and Feedback pulse 3.

A Kar'fi with Borg gear, three field generators, and the new very rare scorpion hanger pets is a near invincible demolishing beast of death in eSTFs. It even outshines my Jem'hadar Attack Ship.

Fleet somraw for me, with the temporal warfare suite still rocks the socks off my Fed Tactical and made me fall in love and respect the KDF side that I recently rolled a KDF engineer to try out KDF cruisers. (All ready have a fed tac, Sci and Eng at lvl 50 and my KDF tac at 50).

Fair to say I am a convert to the KDF side.

My weapons of choice are Tor'kaht and B'rel. Wonderful ships: handling, firepower all around good energy levels and good doff setups.
And they come with Disruptors, the guns I prefer under most circumstances.

For me, I'm running the Guramba with a combination of Honor guard/Borg set so I get the basic perks of both sets. It's just... So powerful... So... Glorious. Full Mk XII borg gear, even a set of quad cannons. I'm beginning to slap on other c-store ship consoles onto it as well.

I can easily activate any combination of attack pattern alpha/omega with torp spread or high yield III and rapid fire with a few other buffs to really get the game moving. Plus, the javelin is always there for me if I feel like shooting some huge-as-crap disruptor beam at something.

I'm new to the KDF, before now I was exclusively a Fed.

I think the best quote I can come up with is Dr. Channard's line from Hellraiser II

"And to think, I hesitated"

I'm flying the Hegh'ta BoP at the moment, I haven't had it long at all but it is amazing. I'm using x3 dual cannons up front, x2 turrets and a photon torpedo. All of it MKIX disruptor and bought at the shipyard. Boosted with a few consoles I bought cheap of the exchange.

I take this ship, and these standard weapons into a fleet action or into Ker'rat and things go insane! CRF spits out a constant stream of energy death, and with a few buffs before a de-cloak ambush I can take down spheres, cubes and even other players...some a higher level than me!

I've already eyeballed the Fleet Hoh'SuS for my endgame ship, and I'll probably stick to dual cannons rather than dual heavies. I just love the insane rate of fire with CRF.
