Kara Advanced Warbird
Warbird Battle Cruiser
53,320 (lvl 60)
Overview[edit | edit source]
This vessel represents the latest developments in Romulan technology. Larger than even the mighty D'deridex, it has superior firepower and even greater hull strength. While slow to maneuver, the Kara is a juggernaut on the battlefield, capable of withstanding tremendous damage while unleashing its weapons on its foes. With its devastating Plasma Spinal Lance, it is a very formidable opponent.
The Kara Advanced Warbird comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Supplemental Subsystems]. When activated, this console substantially increases your starship’s maximum subsystem power levels for a short time. While active, incoming energy weapon attacks damage the attacker, and leech a small amount of the attacker’s subsystem power back to you. Additionally, you gain a Subsystem Overload Counter each time you are hit with an energy attack. After obtaining 20 counters you emit a devastating pulse of electrical energy which deals heavy damage to nearby enemies. Affected enemies have all of their subsystems knocked offline for a brief period. This console provides a passive bonus to all subsystem power levels.
Variants[edit | edit source]
Kara class[edit | edit source]
The Kara class represents the latest in Romulan Republic starship design. Based on previous Advanced Warbird designs, it shares a lot of similarities with Haakona Warbird. The most notable difference is the Lance emitter on the front section of the ship. Unlike its predecessor, it also features a hangar bay. This costume variant is available exclusively through the C-Store purchase of Kara Advanced Warbird.
Ha'apax class[edit | edit source]
The Ha'apax class and its sister classes represent a notable design departure from such classes as the D'deridex and Mogai. The ship's main hull is much bulkier and more solid than preceding classes, with no internal space like the D'deridex. The enormous wings arch downwards (reminiscent of the Dhelan Warbird) to meet with the secondary wings (which, when the Universal Console is equipped, become the wings of the Assault Warbird component), and the "head" looks to be patterned somewhat after a Bird-of-Prey such as an eagle. Indeed, when viewed from directly above or below, it becomes obvious that the ship's shape and design are strongly reminiscent of a Bird-of-Prey in flight.
Haakona class[edit | edit source]
The Haakona looks similar to the Ha'apax Advanced Warbird on which it is based, with a similar overall design of a Bird-of-Prey in flight, with outstretched wings and a "head" section resembling a eagle's beak curving downwards. However, in comparison to the Ha'apax, the Haakona has a more ridged and segmented overall design, with the hull being made of a darker green material than the Ha'apax. The ship's primary wings sweep upwards, while the wings of the Assault Warbird component sweep downwards, emphasizing the two different parts of the ship much more prominently and giving the ship a distinct x-shaped profile when viewed from in front or behind - much like an eagle with its talons outstretched. This class is unlocked with the purchase of the Haakona Advanced Warbird from the C-Store for 2,500 .

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Kara Advanced Warbird can utilize [Console - Universal - Dual Vector Separation] from the Haakona Advanced Warbird (Tier 5, C-Store, 2500 ). Equipping both consoles will grant the 2-piece item set bonus from the Romulan Maneuvering Protocol Set.
Plasma Spinal Lance[edit | edit source]
The Kara Advanced Warbird comes with a built-in Plasma Spinal Lance. This devastating weapon fires a single, powerful plasma beam at a target. It has a narrow firing arc, but when applied properly, it can deal large amount of damage. When the ships separates using the from the Haakona Advanced Warbird, the lance switches into wide beam mode, damaging multiple targets in a cone area, albeit for less damage. The counterparts, Phaser Spinal Lance and Disruptor Javelin are equipped on the Yamato Dreadnought Cruiser and Kolasi Siege Destroyer respectively.
The Kara Advanced Warbird has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
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.
Hangar Bay[edit | edit source]
The Kara Advanced Warbird has a single hangar bay. When commissioned, it is equipped with one hangar of Scorpion Fighters.
