Notes

This Warship design appears to have been an extremely common sight in the Krenim-dominant timeline. USS Voyager encountered them many times, and although the Starfleet ship was able to evade or destroy all of its attackers the ship took massive damage in the process. The Krenim warships do not appear to be particularly heavily armed or protected, but they did have one crucial advantage over their opponents - their weaponry included Chronaton torpedoes. These enter into a state of temporal flux when fired, allowing them to penetrate enemy shields almost unhindered.

Voyager was eventually able to establish a form of temporal shielding, protecting it from both the Chronaton torpedoes and the Krenim Timeship's incursions. The unpredictability introduced by this variable caused the Timeships next incursion to bring the Krenim Empire down to a pre-warp state, eliminating these craft altogether.1

Comments

Seen in the Voyager "Year Of Hell" two parter, the Krenim warship is pretty much as described in the specs page. The ships seem to be remarkably weak in some ways - we've seen photon torpedoes destroy Starships with one hit before now, but the Krenim hit Voyager with torp after torp with relatively little effect. Now when Starships resist fire like this it's generally possible to say that the ships armour or Structural Integrity Field protected them, but in this case one torpedo even explodes within Voyager only fifty feet or so from Seven of Nine and Tuvok, leaving both alive afterwards. To be fair, though, that torp did not seem to be in the best of repair when it went off, and may have been a misfire of some sort.

The Warship seemed to be fairly weak in terms of the fire it could resist also. We never see an engagement between Voyager and these ships from beginning to end, so it's hard to judge just how much fire they can take. But Voyager does finish one off with four photon torpedoes; more conclusively, the ship goes almost an entire year fighting the Krenim with only 30-odd torps aboard, indicating that no more than five or so can be used on each occasion.
