The Hirogen hunter vessel is the most common ship used by the Hirogen. The Hirogen use these vessels to hunt their prey across their expansive territory, though are not used as traditional warships. The USS Voyager first encountered these ships in 2374 after they used the Hirogen relay station to transimt the Doctor to the Alpha Quadrant. (VOY episode: "Message in a Bottle")
This ship was equipped with powerful weapons and is heavily armored with monotanium armor plating, preventing Starfleet phasers doing nothing but little damage to their ship's armor. A small group was able to take control of the Federation Intrepid-class starship Voyager with a group of these ships. (VOY episode: "The Killing Game")
These ships, even with their large size, could be manned by only few hunters, two at most, and are more of traveling displays of the Hirogen's hunting trophies.
Their ships were also equipped with dicyclic warp signatures.
