 Ex Astris Scientia - The Everlasting Klingon Battlecruiser
The original D7 battlecruiser, designed by Matt Jefferies, was the only type of Klingon ship during TOS, and it was introduced as late as in the third season episode "Elaan of Troyius".
This new battlecruiser named K't'inga may have been intended to be an upgraded version of the D7, just like the Enterprise in TMP was still supposed to be the very same ship that Kirk had commanded until 2270.
Maintaining the idea that the battlecruiser is a traditional basic design that didn't change too much in 225 years, it will be best for technical plausibility to respect the difference between D7 (23rd century) and K't'inga (23rd/24th century), and have one design that predates both of them.
