To be fair, there's nothing to say that the production of the Vorcha wasn't inspired by UFP advancements.

We can only guess but I'd say at least four. The shape of the Vorcha means you could build the ship in four smaller sections and just link them together. Klingons aren't big on comfort so the interior wouldn't have to be even completed for the Klingons to launch them. KDF ships seem to be weapons and engines that have a ship built over them. Mass production seems far more then likely. But again, we can only guess.

The ability to build three Vorcha class in the same space as a GCS doesn't hurt you either.

I dont think it would be exactly 3 to 1. the GCS may be three times the amount of resources but I think it would be less of strain building 1 large ship than three smaller ones.

You have to build and install three warp cores, computer cores ect. That would make the build time and the industry required to build them a bit higher than just building one of each component for the GCS, even if they are larger.

I didn't mean three because of mass but by volume instead. The Vorcha is a far more compact design with a far more simple overall production requirement. Flat and narrow vs the height of the GCS.
