The Qaw'Dun-class Bird-of-Prey is a Tier 2 (Level 10) Raider which may be flown by Klingon Defense Force characters, including Klingon Empire-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. The faction restrictions of this starship can be removed by having a level 65 KDF character or by purchasing the Cross Faction Flying unlock from the Zen Store.

Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 37,500 Refined dilithium icon.png. This ship can be purchased individually, or as part of the console-only Klingon Empire Pack for 4,000 Zen small icon.png. It is also available as part of the following: console-only All Faction Mega Bundle for 8,000 Zen small icon.png. This ship was previously available on its own from the Zen Store; players that purchased it from there can still reclaim it from there on all their characters.

Overview[]

Birds-of-Prey are small, fast and fill a variety of roles for the Empire. They can be used as scouts, raiders or patrol ships. They're vulnerable when cloaked, but their speed and maneuverability make them hard to hit. Also, the Bridge Officer spaces on a Bird-of-Prey are mostly universal, which makes them more versatile.

The Qaw'Dun-class Bird-of-Prey (also known as M'Char class) is a Refit version of the standard QulDun Bird-of-Prey.

Class variants[]

SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The QulDun class is slightly different from the B'rel-class Bird-of-Prey. While using a classic Klingon design for the starship, the QulDun features no feathered wing pattern on the wings. The bridge section of the hull is more pointed and not as big as the B'rel's. The main hull is also slightly larger.
