Kara Advanced Warbird
Warbird Battle Cruiser
The Kara Advanced Warbird is a Vice Admiral (Tier 6) level Warbird. This ship is available to Romulan Republic players from the Cryptic store for 3,000 , or as part of the the cross-faction 3-pack T6 Dreadnought Bundle for 6,000 .
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Ha'apax-class Advanced Warbird represents the latest developments in Romulan technology. Larger than even the mighty D'deridex-class Warbird, it has superior firepower and even greater hull strength. While slow to maneuver, a Ha'apax-class starship is a juggernaut on the battlefield, capable of withstanding tremendous damage while unleashing its weapons on its foes.

With a devastating built-in Plasma Spinal Lance, the Kara-class is a very formidable opponent.

When compared to the older Romulan warbirds, the Ha'apax-class has a much bulkier main hull with no internal space like the D'deridex-class. The enormous wings arch downwards (reminiscent of the Dhelan Warbird) to meet with the secondary wings, 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.
Players can choose between two different types (Type 1 and Type 2) of Ha'apax-class "hull" and "nacelle" designs.

The Ha'apax-class parts are interchangeable with parts from the Ha'feh Assault Warbird and the Ha'nom Guardian Warbird. Selecting these parts will turn the ship's Assault command section into a Ha'feh-class vessel and Guardian command section into a Ha'nom.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Haakona Advanced Warbird, 2,500 |
When compared to the Ha'apax, the Haakona-class has a more ridged and segmented overall design. The ship's primary wings sweep upwards, while the wings of the Assault Warbird component sweep downwards, giving it a look of an eagle with its talons outstretched.

Based on previous Advanced Warbird designs, the Kara-class shares a lot of similarities with Haakona-class 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.

Special Features[edit | edit source]
