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.
They also described Genesis as a "doomsday weapon" and referred to the Federation as "a gang of galactic criminals."

This, from a species that didn't have a word for "peace" until Kurzon Dax taught it to them, isn't all that surprising.

And I would classify the Defiant as a warship.
So would Kira. Hence her amazement.
