Notes

The Bajoran assault vessel is designed for insystem use only, and possesses no warp drive. It fulfils general policing and patrol duties in the Bajoran system, and when necessary can be used to deploy troops from Bajor to other planets in the system. It is not a serious combat vessel by Starship standards.

In design the ship is relatively conventional, with an aerodynamic shape and wings which allow it to operate within a planetary atmosphere and carry out landings in order to deploy troops in environments hostile to transporter technology. The six phaser weapons provide all around coverage, and each is under the control of a gunner rather than being linked into a central firecontrol system.

This design was one of the first built by the Bajorans after the end of the Cardassian occupation, and its many shortcomings are understandable when seen in this light. Although Bajor has since acquired some more advanced alien vessel designs they also plan to upgrade these ships as part of the policy of building an self-contained defence capability. Few details are forthcoming on the proposed upgrades, but fitting some form of impulse engine or perhaps even a low speed warp drive is likely, along with weapons upgrades.

Comments

The Bajoran Assault Vessel was seen in the opening shot of "You Are Cordially Invited", and it is from here that the image on the images page comes. The green-coded date on the specs page is from the DS9 technical manual, and most of the speculation is intended to back their version of the ship up. There is only one major change to the DS9 TM version of events; the book claims that the ship is fitted with phased polaron beam weapons. Since the PPB is the advanced energy weapon which the Dominion uses, I'm inclined to think that this is one of the various mistakes in this section. Since the Bajorans use phaser hand weapons, I've arbitrarily changed the ship's weapons to phasers as well.

The commissioning date for the ships is intended to illustrate that they were produced shortly after the Cardassian withdrawal from the system.
