Story of the Class is as Follows:
In the early stages of the Dominion War Starfleet predicted a Slow and Costly ground war. And required a large agile Heavy Cruiser, that could safey enter a Solar System that was under heavy enemy control and then manuver in a Plantary atmosphere, without any sheilds. For emergency beam out/ins using Close proximity transporters designed to beam though dampening fields and or shields at very close range.
The challenge was put forth to the various shipyard engineers, who had working Knowlage of "in the field ship operations" for a design that could take the punishment of Atmospheric flight while under attack from Jem Hader craft while still been able to hold large numbers of large transporter rooms, sick bays and Barrack areas and yet still keep enough weaponary for a ship its size and manuverablity of a ship half its size. Many new designs were thought of, and tested but all failed in the aspect of having a service life outside of the war when Starfleet would resume its Exploration and Scientific studies, which was deemed too costly and inefficient.
Starfleet decided a fresh look was needed and requested the assitance of OutaLance Shipyards of the NeirB'O System Near the Klingon/Federation boarder.
At OutaLance they handed the Project over to the Manitoba Commision who came up with the design using Elements from "Tried and Tested" Hull Shapes, the first ship of the design was a scaled down version of their design, which was flown down into the atmosphere of a J-Class Planet without shields to the point where a normal hull would be crushed. 5 ships where commisioned and delivered on time and were put straight to use.
When the Dominion War came to a close not one of the class had been destroyed and they became test beds for the application of the Regenerative Ablative Armour that Voyager brought back on its return from the Delta Quadrant and the "Alternate Future Federation Technology"
