Cardassian patrol cruisers were a type of starship employed by the Cardassian Union during the 24th century. These vessels were primarily used for patrolling and policing the Federation-Cardassian border, and later the Demilitarized Zone. These vessels are much larger than Cardassian shuttles. (DS9: "The Maquis, Part I")

Hideki-class vessels have been identified as Cardassian patrol ships. (DS9: "Tribunal")

The Curie, a Federation Type 6 shuttlecraft "stolen" by Joret Dal, encountered a Cardassian patrol ship as he reentered Cardassian space after "escaping" from the USS Enterprise-D in late 2370. (TNG: "Lower Decks")

A patrol ship was located in launch bay 3-A of Dominion Headquarters in 2375. Damar told Worf and Ezri Dax of its location, so they could escape. (DS9: "Strange Bedfellows")

It is unclear if the patrol cruiser and Cardassian pursuit vessel represent the same class or not. The term "patrol ship" was a Federation description for the Hideki-class, whereas the term "pursuit vessel" was used by Dukat to describe something comparable to the Danube-class. However, because both terms (using the term "patrol cruiser") were used in two separate references in the same episode, it might denote the possibility that these are two different vessel types.
