The Kzintis are a species of eight-foot-tall felines; the Klingons call them "tigermen." They are adjacent to the Federation (and have fought two major wars with them, losing both) and the Klingons (and have fought several wars with them, winning a few and losing a few). Kzinti ships are armed with disruptors, phasers, and drones. They have more drones on their standard warships than any other empire, and forests of phaser-3s, because their ships are designed to fight each other. (They have had more civil wars than foreign wars.) They are enemies of the Klingons and Lyrans and allies of convenience with the Hydrans and Federation.
The Kzintis were somewhat slower than their enemies to move into fast patrol ships (or gunboats). Many suggest it was just the difficulty of changing their already war-ravaged economy to a new paradigm. As with most empires, their first foray into using the fast patrol ship prototypes involved the conversion of a war destroyer. The Kzinti Light Gunboat/PF Tender was perhaps the best armed of the type, retaining half of its drone racks. It was perhaps the best “special mission” ship of the breed. Almost uniquely among the empires, the Kzintis decided (based on their experience with this ship) that internal repair bays were the way to go, and incorporated them into more designs than any other empire, but only the internal docking bay could repair a damaged gunboat. Known names included Three Claws, Three Teeth, and Three Winds.
This ship is available in a variety of materials. Ships are unpainted, use standard flight stands available from many sources, and, while designed for gaming, make fine display pieces.
