Developed from the same general layout as the smaller B'rel the K'Vort class battle cruiser looks almost identical and is colloquially also referred to as a Bird of Prey. First developed in the 2340s as a less capable counterpart to the Vor'cha class the K'Vort has quickly supplanted the K't'inga class in front line roles.

Less numerous than the Vor'cha the K'Vort fills different roles, however. For a Klingon ship of this size (slightly larger than the Vor'cha in overall dimensions) the K'Vort is surprisingly lightly armed. The K'Vort, however, was designed as a troop carrier with teeth. Much of its internal space is devoted to living quarters and equipment storage. Ordinarily, a K'Vort can deploy almost five hundred fully armed warriors to a planet and is capable of transporting up to 1500 soldiers in an emergency.

Like the smaller B'rel the K'Vort can land on a planetary surface. Its shields can be used to provide basic cover to ground troops being deployed and the vessel can serve as a command and control centre for ground operations. It cannot move its wings like the B'rel.

In open combat, two K'Vorts are generally a match for a Vor'cha, with three having a fair chance of defeating a Galaxy class (though not without taking casualties of their own). Most of the time, however, the K'Vort is kept out of the thick of the fighting.

During a major fleet modernisation programme between 2367 and 2371 the K'Vort benefited by receiving better shields and weapons. The old shield generators and disrupters were fitted to the older K't'inga class and replaced with more and newer models. This gives the K'Vort six disrupter banks, two wing-mounted pulse disrupter cannons and three forward and one aft torpedo tube.

The two forward tubed located on both sides of the main section, right where it connects with the wings, and the aft launcher share the same torpedo magazine with 216 rounds, the third forward launcher (located beneath the bridge) is equipped with a separate magazine holding 44 torpedoes.

K'Vort class vessels, like the B'rel, have been seen in the employ of Klingon noble houses as well as private individuals and are readily available on the open market, albeit for a stiff price.
