The Bajorans obtained a handful of these cargo vessels during the Cardassian Occupation. Most were acquired by the Provisional Government after the Cardassian withdrawal, and they were a popular sight around Deep Space Nine.2

This vessel was seen in "Past prolouge" and in the DS9 opening credits from season 4 onwards. We don't know much about it, but I have assumed that it is a cargo vessel - basically because that's what it looks like. Since we first saw it in Season 1, I'm assuming that it is something the bajorans acquired during the occupation rather than a new build.

The class name is speculative; it's not really possible that the Federation would not know the names that Bajorans give to their ships so I have had to come up with class names for all of these. Obviously, it is named after the Emissary himself - Ben Sisko.
