The Fleet Ar'kif Tactical Carrier Warbird (T6) is a Tier 6 (Vice Admiral) level Warbird. This ship is available to Romulan Republic players from the Tier V Fleet Starbase Shipyards for 20,000 Fleet Credits and 5 Fleet Ship Module icon.png. Purchasing the Jhu'ael Tactical Carrier Warbird lowers the price to 20,000 Fleet Credits and 1 Fleet Ship Module icon.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

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 was the Ar'kif-class Tactical Warbird.

The Tactical Warbird class of vessels takes many of their design cues from the existing Escorts, Raptors and Destroyers of their allies. The Ar'kif-class has the look of classic Romulan ship designs with the firepower needed to take on the toughest opponents.

Jhu'ael Tactical Carrier Warbird 2.png

The new Jhu'ael-class actical Carrier Warbird is heavily based on the Ar'kif-class Retrofit's original designs. Built in the middle of the Iconian War, this new variant has been updated to more effectively combat the new threat of the Iconians and their Heralds.

Ships of this class are smaller and more agile than the D’deridex-class – more similar in size to Starfleet's Akira-class. With most of its weapons in the front, the design of the Tactical Warbird emphasizes forward aggressiveness with hawk-like, forward swept wings that flow smoothly into the front of the ships. It also has prominent weapon pods designed to accommodate Plasma Quad Cannons, as well as a forward beam emitter to fire the Focused Singularity Beam.

Federation and Klingon Empire Fleets, which Republic officers are part of, have made further upgrades to the Jhu'ael-class Tactical Carrier Warbirds. These Fleet Starships are built to the highest standard and have increased Hull Hit Points, Shield Strength and an additional Tactical Console slot. Tier 6 Fleet ships do not have a 5th Starship Mastery level and thus do not unlock a Starship Trait.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - ROM - Ar'kif Tactical Warbird (T4).png
Ar'kif-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Ar'kif-class shares 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 trailing edges of the wings are corrugated to show a "feathered" silhouette.
Ship Variant - ROM - Ar'kala Tactical Warbird (T4).png
Ar'kala-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Ar'kala Tactical Warbird, 1,500 Zen small icon.png
The Ar'kala-class showcases elements present in other refits: silver-colored armor plating, smoother and more prominent wing design, and more prominent warp nacelles. The ship lacks "feathered" silhouette along its wings' rear edges. Its forward deflector array is also more visible.
Ship Variant - ROM - Jhu'ael Tactical Carrier Warbird (T6).png
Jhu'ael-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Jhu'ael Tactical Carrier Warbird, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
Outfitted for battle, the Jhu'ael-class looks much more aggressive and sharp-edged than its predecessor. Jhu'ael has prominent weapon pods designed to accommodate Plasma Quad Cannons, as well as a forward beam emitter to fire the Focused Singularity Beam.
