NOTES:
Known Sphere Of Operation: Empire-wide use
Data Reliability: C for all models
Major Data Source: Klingon Sector Intelligence

The K-26 was an 80,000 mt Klingon vessel of unusual experimental design that was not generally seen in large numbers far from the interior of the Empire. Because its radical shape did not prove noticeably effective, production of the class was limited despite several attempts to upgrade the design.

Though officially designated an escort, the K-26A mounted firepower equal to that of older D-7A class cruisers. Used primarily for courier and special-duty assignments, it was considered ideally suited for situations where the loss of a more advanced design would not be warranted.

Both the B and C models were built in an attempt to increase the firepower and effectiveness of the K-26. However, both models appeared to be less effective and cost efficient than other designs of their respective periods.

Of the 30 K-26s built, 3 As, 2 Bs and 1 C have been destroyed. 2 As and 1 B are listed as missing. 7 As, 6 Bs and 2 Cs were traded to the Romulans. 2 As, 3 Bs and 1 C were sold to ranking families in the Empire.

The K-26 was built at the Gerly, Qo’noS and Z’Hai facilities.
