All Jem'Hadar are virtually born ready for combat.  Any of the
ship's complement are fully capable of operating the ship or
acting as foot soldiers.  The ship needs only four Jem'Hadar
to be fully operational, though a full squad of 8 will normally
remain onboard at all times.

The phased polaron beams are a particularly effective energy
weapon.  Using an organic technology which Federation scientists
have been unable to duplicate, the beam control attenuates the
operating frequency of the beam to penetrate another vessels'
energy screams as if they were not present.  Although the
Federation has made progress with rapid shield modulation
routines which prevent the full magnitude of the beam's power
from reaching the unshielded hull, the phased polaron beam still
poses a great threat.  Dependeding on the relative development
of the polaron beam controller and Federation shield controller
at any given time, a starship captain could experience either
an encounter during which his shields were as effective as
against normal phaser or disruptor fire or one where the
polaron beams passed through the shields without being impeded
at all.

The photon torpedo used on the Jem'Hadar vessels has an advanced
ECM suite making it difficult to distract from its target.
Otherwise, it is an unremarkable combination of an anti-matter
warhead and warp field sustainer coil similar to those in use
by various races in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants (Klingons,
Romulans, Cardassians, Federation, etc).
