The Akula-class was a type of Federation starship in Starfleet service in the 23rd century, classified as a destroyer or escort vessel. (ST video game: Legacy)
Ships of this class were 290 meters long, 175 meters wide and 140 meters tall. Their overall layout was similar to the later Norway-class starships, minus the phaser hanging below the main hull. Additionally, they were armed with 6 dual emitter phaser banks, 1 phaser lance and 2 photon torpedo launchers. Defences included standard deflector shields. (ST video game: Legacy)
Another, frigate type Akula-class exists in the same era, featured in the TOS video game: Starfleet Command. It resembles the Apollo-class, featured in Legacy alongside this Akula-class destroyer / escort.
