The Norin Class light tactical cruiser were small warships that the Cardassian Union used in the 24th century.

The Norin class were registered as class 2 vessels and measured 282 meters in length.

History and Specifications

The development of this form of fast attack ship came as a response to the Federation's use of escort craft that were introduced during the Dominion War and resulted in heavy damage to the Cardassian fleet. This forced the Cardassian's to utilise their own design which became the Norin-class ships. They were faster then previous warship designs employed with stronger shields. Though powerful ships, they were designed for quick rapid attacks or to weaken enemy ships enough for the larger Cardassian warships to finish off. Typically, these light tactical cruisers always attacked in pairs.

They were armed with 2 long spiral wave disruptor, 4 spiral wave disruptors and 4 disruptor wave cannons. (DS9 video game: Dominion Wars)
