In this continuity, the Saladins were a sub-class of the Syracuse-class destroyers.
In 2250, the remaining Sivas and Saladin vessels, as well as eight Monoceros from the Hermes-class scouts, received upgrades of the external hull, warp nacelle, pylon, and weaponry. The new PB-32 nacelle provided cruise and maximum speeds of warp 6 and warp 8, while the weaponry was completely replaced: the torpedo systems were modified to support forced-intermix warhead supply equipment and the six phase cannons were replaced by an equal number of less massive—but far more adaptive—Type VII phaser emitters. The bridge was provided a lower target profile by being “sunk” half a deck into the surrounding superstructure. And, for utilitarian purposes, a powerful tractor beam emitter was mounted on the pylon’s trailing edge, midway between the saucer and the nacelle.
In the 2270s, Jenghiz was re-assigned to a propulsive research group studying single-nacelle propulsion for future destroyers and scouts. (Delta Dynamics: Star Fleet Starship Recognition Manual: Report #292: Syracuse Destroyers)
In the 2270s, a refit would include upgrades (including linear warp drive) that would make Jenghiz the prototype for the Jenghiz-class destroyers. (Jackill's Starfleet Reference Manual: Ships of the Fleet, vol. 1, 2006 revision)
