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.
