Waiting for that TOS reference to Starfleet cruisers as warships...
There isn't one and never has been.

But... (the dreaded 'but')

When you have enough firepower to level the entire habitable surface of a planet, I can easily see such a ship being classified as a 'warship'.

Though I have no issue with the Vengeance being Starfleet's first dedicated 'warship'.
It WAS called a Dreadnaught in the film.
