The Klolode Hull

D-6 weapons arcs D-7 weapons arcs
The first use of the Klolode-style hull was in the D-6, whose weapon arcs (green for disruptor, blue for phaser) are shown above. A slight hull modification allowed the addition of more phasers and longer-range disruptors, resulting in the D-7, whose weapon arcs are shown in the second illustration.

D-6 Battlecruiser
Klolode
Green:Disruptor

Blue:Phaser

Purple:Drone

Developed as a replacement for the D-4 Cruiser, this hull design proved highly durable and adaptable.
D-7 Battlecruiser Green: Disruptor

Blue: Phaser

Purple: Drone

The first improvement, with more (and better) phasers, and extended-range disruptors. Did not fully replace the D-6, which was cheaper to produce.
D-6D Drone Cruiser Blue: Phaser

Purple: Drone

Although designed for long-range drone bombardment, this cruiser has been known to hold its own in direct combat. It is usually deployed in a "wolfpack" of three, under a D-7 leader, and with either another Drone Cruiser or a different combat Klolode variant.
D-7A Stasis Cruiser
Spellbinder
Orange:Stasis Device

Green: Disruptor

Blue: Phaser

Purple: Drone

An experimental weapon. It projects the Slaver stasis effect, using the target ship's shields or hull as a conductor to surround it in a volume of space where time is stopped (or immensely slowed). The Stasis Projector is an intense power drain and also places the D-7A under restrictions almost as severe as its target.
D-7M Battlecruiser
K't'inga
Green: Disruptor

Red: Photorp

Moving the Main Deflector allowed the installation of a Photorp tube.
Firepower is greatly increased with improved, smaller disruptors (moved from the nacelles to allow warp engine expansion).
D-7R Battlecruiser
K't'rika
Green: Disruptor

Red: Plasma Torpedo

Carries Cloaking Device

The second attempt by the Klingons to install the Romulan plasma weapon, more successful as they had finally recieved a cloaking device. (Combat doctrine is to approach the target cloaked and fire the torpedo as close as possible to minimize the disipation of the plasma.)

Romulan KR Battlecruiser Red: Plasma Torpedo

Blue: Phaser

Carries Cloaking Device

The first transfer of Klingon ships were F-5 Frigates and older D-6's, but these became the most advanced ships the Romulans had in their fleet at that time. They were fitted with Romulan plasma torpedo technology to ensure availability of repair parts at all starbases.
Hydran Captured Cruiser D7H Anarchist Red: Hellbore

Pink: Fusion Beam

Blue: Phaser

Captured by the Hydrans and converted to their weapons technology and fleet colors to fly as a propaganda coup against the Klingons.
