OTOH, we do have some non-Starfleet characters in the Bajoran Militia -- a military organization -- for whom it is apparently common knowledge that Starfleet "doesn't believe in warships."
Yet the Klingons classify the Enterprise as a "Federation battlecruiser" in The Search for Spock. Twice in TOS it's mentioned that a Constitution-class starship can devastate the surface of a planet (A Taste of Armageddon/Bread and Circuses). Starfleet carries out wargames (The Ultimate Computer/Peak Performance).

And I would classify the Defiant as a warship.
