Notes

The Bajorans built a number of these low-capability vessels in the early years of the 24th century, mostly employing them for point defence of Bajor itself. Most of the type were destroyed during the Cardassian occupation of the planet, but a handful did remain in the hands of the resistance movement. They suffered considerably from neglect, but at least one was still operable as late as 2370.1

Comments

This Bajoran ship was first seen in DS9s "The Siege". It is a short range low capability fighter - "sub-impulse" implying that it uses something like thrusters as its main engine. As such, it could not possibly stack up to something like a Federation Peregrine class. Simple patrol missions around a planet, inspecting civilian traffic perhaps, would seem to be the limit of a ship like this.

I have assumed that these craft are extremely old in order to explain their weakness and low technology.

The DS9 TM claims a length of 33 metres for this ship. However, we see Kira and Daw standing next to one and it is clearly much, much smaller than this. The TM also claims that the fighter carries six phased polaron cannon - but these are the high-tech shield-penetrating weapons used by the Dominion! It is highly unlikely that the Bajorans have ships equipped with these weapons. Instead I have equipped the fighter with a pair of plasma cannon.
