While the Danube-class was adequate for many of Starfleet's needs in the years prior to the Dominion War, many engineers felt that the design lacked sufficient resilience and firepower for frontline missions during that conflict. Additionally, many of those starships commanders fortunate enough to have a capable MACO detachment aboard had noted the difficulty of delivering those MACOs safely into potentially hostile areas which might not allow the effective use of transporters. Designed with both of these considerations in mind, deployed in 2374 to supplement the Danube, the Mustang class runabout has repeatedly proven itself to be one of the most formidable small craft available to Starfleet.

In addition to augmented hull armor and shielding, the most important innovation which enables the Mustang to operate so effectively in hostile environments is the new Type VII phaser array. With a considerably upgraded power capacity and advanced computer support, each array can support three emitter segments capable of independent targeting and high rates of fire. Between the three such arrays mounted on a Mustang's hull, the range of fire arcs available to her crew covers virtually the entire perimeter of the craft. This enables the runabout to maneuver defensively without fear of masking her own fire, as well as to defend herself against attack from virtually any angle.
