The Jhu'ael-class Tactical Carrier Warbird is a Lieutenant (Tier 6) level scaling Warbird. This ship is available to Romulan Republic players from the Cryptic store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png, or as part of the the cross-faction 3-pack Heavy Escort Carrier bundle for 6,000 Zen small icon.png.

This starship can be used from any level, upon completion of the tutorial experience. As you level up, this ship gains additional hull, weapon slots, and console slots.

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.

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: Free
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.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

The Jhu'ael-class Tactical Carrier Warbird comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Destabilized Tachyon Emitters].

This ability is part of the Enhanced Plasma Infusion Set, which also includes [Plasma Quad Cannons [Dmg]x3] and [Console - Universal - Focused Singularity Modulator] obtainable with Ar'kala Tactical Warbird (T4) and Ar'kif Tactical Carrier Warbird Retrofit (T5), but also equippable on the Jhu'ael-class Tactical Carrier Warbird.

Specialization Seating[edit | edit source]

The Jhu'ael-class Tactical Carrier Warbird features one specialist seat:

  • Lieutenant Commander Science/Pilot Lieutenant Commander Science/Pilot

Battle Cloak

The Jhu'ael-class Tactical Carrier Warbird has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Experimental Weapon[edit source]

The Jhu'ael-class Tactical Carrier Warbird comes with an Experimental Weapon slot. This additional slot does not fit standard weapons. Unlike standard starship weapons, Experimental weapons are not affected by weapon firing modes, such as those granted by bridge officer abilities.

Hangar Bay[edit | edit source]

The Jhu'ael-class Tactical Carrier Warbird comes equipped with a single wing of Scorpion Fighters.

These light craft are equipped with fore Plasma Pulse Cannons and Plasma Torpedo Launcher.

The Elite variant of the Scorpion Fighter is obtainable from the New Romulus reputation system.

Carrier Commands[edit | edit source]

Singularity[edit source]

Romulan Warbird vessels 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.

Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]

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.

Scaling Starship[edit source]

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment Slot Scaling[edit source]

As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, and science console slots will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Level Console tac icon.png Console eng icon.png Console sci icon.png Fore weapons Aft weapons
0-9 2 0 2 2 2
10-19 2 1 2 3 2
20-29 3 1 3 3 3
30-39 3 2 3 4 3
40+ 4 2 4

Hull Strength Scaling[edit source]

This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.05 for the Jhu'ael-class Tactical Carrier Warbird), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
