The Ar'Kala Tactical Warbird is a Tier 4 (Commander) level Warbird and a variant of the Ar'Kif Tactical Warbird. It has the look of classic Romulan ship designs with the firepower needed to take on the toughest opponents.

The Ar'Kala Tactical Warbird was added in game on September 12th, 2013.

Although the Romulan Republic's fleet was launched with repurposed ships from the Romulan Star Empire, Republic leaders quickly saw the need to design their own starships. One of the first ship designs to come out of the New Romulus Shipyards is the Ar'Kala Tactical Warbird.

The Ar'Kala Tactical Warbird comes with [Plasma Quad Cannons [Dmg]x4] which draw power from the ships engines to deal massive damage. These cannons scale with the player and may be equipped on any ship supporting cannons, however only one Quad Cannon may be equipped per ship.

[edit] Ar'Kala Tactical Warbird

Ar'Kala class
The Ar'Kala Tactical Warbird updates the Ar'Kif's design to more recent styles, showcasing elements present in other refits such as the Dhael Warbird, D'ridthau Warbird Battle Cruiser, Valdore Heavy Warbird, and Haakona Advanced Warbird. Among these elements are silver-colored armor plating, smoother and more prominent wing design, and more prominent warp nacelles. Unlike the Ar'Kif, the Ar'Kala has no "feathered" silhouette" along its wings' rear edges. Its forward deflector array is more visible, and its nacelles and bussard collectors are fully visible.


[edit] Ar'Kif Tactical Warbird

Ar'Kif class
As a recent design, the Ar'Kif shares some design principles with newer Romulan ships, such as a more evenly-spaced double-wing design, slightly downward-slanted wings, and a more rounded "head" section. The Ar'kif also has prominent weapon pods designed to accommodate Plasma Quad Cannons, as well as a forward beam emitter to fire the Focused Singularity Beam. The bridge is visible on top of the dorsal hull, while the trailing edges of the wings are corrugated to show a "feathered" silhouette. The Ar'Kif has similar hull material choices and colors to the Mogai Heavy Warbird.

[edit] Performance

With an extra Tactical Console, an extra Lieutenant Universal Bridge Officer station and the addition of Quad Plasma Cannons, the Ar'Kala is even more qualified to dish out damage than its parent vessel, the Ar'Kif Tactical Warbird. The Quad Cannons scale with the player's level, so they can be a potent hitting force on this ship, and can also be taken on the Ar'Kif Tactical Carrier Warbird Retrofit at Tier 5 - and when added to the ship's Annihilation mode, the Ar'Kala can overwhelm nearly any enemy ship in short order.

[edit] Standard Configuration

Romulan starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.


[edit] Abilities

[edit] Romulan Battle Cloak

All Romulan Warbirds are equipped with an advanced version of the cloaking device, a battle cloak, that can be activated whilst at Red Alert, giving the Ar'Kala Tactical Warbird a significant advantage.

[edit] Singularity

Romulan Warbirds come with built-in Singularity abilities. These abilities do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Warbirds. These powers build in severity based on the charge built up by the ship's Singularity Core.

[edit] Notes

  • On September 19th 2013 a hanger bay was added to the Ar'Kala Tactical Warbird model. This is a visual change only. The ship cannot equip Carrier Pets.
