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.
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.

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.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Ar'kala Tactical Warbird, 150,000 |
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.

Outfitted for battle, the Jhu'ael class looks much more aggressive and sharp-edged than its predecessor. The 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.

As a Romulan Warbird, the Jhu'ael-class Tactical Carrier Warbird comes 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.
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.
This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.
Equipment slots and seating
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, science console slots and available bridge officer (boff) abilities will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:
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.
|Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP|
By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Jhu'ael-class Tactical Carrier Warbird may be upgraded to T6-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait.
Note that upgrading the Fleet Ar'kif Tactical Carrier Warbird, the fleet version of the Jhu'ael Tactical Carrier Warbird, will not apply the upgrade to this starship.
