The Mighty K'Tanco

This ship is so cool, I keep going back to it... I just wish for two things.

First, I wish it was higher tier to make it more useful. It's too cool to be stuck at tier 2.

Second, I wish it wouldn't fire aft mounted turrets from the forward cannon mounts. The reason is that when it does so, it only fires from one side or the other, which looks a little funny. If it would fire from both, that would be ideal, but even if it fired from the top of the aft hull, that would be fine.

As an honourable mention, I wish the lower part of the aft hull was one solid piece, instead of those two prongs.

Just putting this out there.
Once, I was simply called Mojo. Now, I'm forced into a new name, but don't be fooled, I'm the original STO Mojo!

This game needs detailed crafting, exploration and interaction systems.

    Heck, I'd even settle for it being tier 3, so I can get some cannon skills for her. As it is, with only an ensign Tactical slot, I can only use torpedo skills.

    While i like the idea of more stuff for the KDF, i am not really sold on this IMO lackluster design.

    The brel cruiser.

    It is a cool model.

    T6 K'Taco I would be a purchaser as well. Really a T6 cruiser bop... with commander engi and universal everything else. We got the Ketha Recon raptor.... I could see a T6 taco being the K'Tanco Recon Battle Cruiser.

    Agreed! I'd rather have a T6 Kar'Fi carrier first, but that would also make a nice Winter Event ship.

    It would be fun to do some TFOs with a premade group of Fek'Ihri ships once we have more T6s.

    Yeah....probably the only way we'll get a T6 Kar'fi is with the winter event. I hope we get one....I mean the other winter/summer event T6 ships each got two ships with hangars....so I hope they can at least give us a T6 Kar'fi in a year or two.

    I mean I keep trying to fly her in endgame content, being max level and all.

    I'd still do so, but dislike how single weapons fire only from one of the wing mounts. This is especially the case with Turrets.
    Can we at least get the hardpoint for a single beam, cannon or turret moved to somewhere else, like on the top of the hull or bow?

    i like the K`tanco, its a simple but god design. a sturdy little warship.
  • jexsamxjexsamx Member Posts: 2,710 Arc User
    I always liked the "chin" on the K'tanco and have been quite pleased with how it found its way into other Cryptic designs later. Gives the ships a gruff, rugged look that looks right at home with other typical Klingon design styles. The K'tanco itself, as noted in an above post, looks the part of a midway point between numerous KDF ship types, making it seem like it was intended to be a multi-role cruiser capable of doing a little of everything.

    While I don't know off-hand what my top five favorite Cryptic designs are, the K'tanco is at least #5. It's definitely the only pre-LoR design on that list, though.

    I've been on the T6 K'tanco fandom forever. Underrated ship. beautiful and needs a T6 version.

    There's a ton of lower tier, playable KDF ships that are ripe for transition into Tier 6. Even outside Klingon ones like the K'Tanco, there's lots of Nausicaan, Gorn, Orion ships left rotting. The Qaw'Dun & QulDun BOP skins aren't usable at endgame.

    There's also a slew of NPC Nausicaan, Orion, etc. ships like the Orion Warbarge, Slavemaster, Nausicaan Ravager, Talon. Would be nice if they were made playable.

    just for my wisdom, how many captains are nausican or Orion percentage wise?

    We don't know those numbers. But from me having most of my time on KDF side, outside the Klingons, Gorn and Female Orion make up the remaining bulk. Nausicaan captains are uncommon. Letheans and Male Orion are super rare to see.

    Thanks for the image, I was right in how KDF broke down in captain races!

    As someone already campaigning for T6 Nova, Oberth, and others, I'll and my 2 EC: I support the T6 K'Tanco!!!
    My preference would be to see it as a Warship, which is strong mix of Cruiser & Raider already.

    I have to agree with that, from what I've seen. As for my own roster of KDF chars, my 1st that I ever made I used the Alien option to make a half Orion/half Klingon character, and used Orion male as a Human char. Most of my KDF are Klingon, Aliens or Gorn. One of my Aliens is a Cardassian, made before the race was playable, and he flies a K'Tanco.

    i must say, i did not expected more nausicaans than Orion...

    Female Orions are pretty darn close in running the show with the KDF :)

    Those numbers are 4 years old. At least when I clicked on that link I got the 5th anniversary info.

    yeah but female Orions are still a kdf staple

    edit: by the way, regarding these numbers i`m wondering why we never get many vulcan ships. with the exception of the current event ships, we only have the good old T5 D`kyr and the support shuttle.

    @artan42
    Missed this comment til now. To me the K'tanco is a mismatch of various KDF designs. It has some of a cruisers and some of a BOP. To me it's neither bread nor butter. Not ugly, but i cannot call it a nice design either.
