The Vas'Ralaaram War Carrier, a modified Vas'Hatham hull, was built to provide the Romulan Star Empire with an effective
fighter shuttle carrier unit -- something that had been sorely lacking before. Able to carry six shuttles into the fray, the Vas'Ralaaram
could deliver a small number of fighters into a battle and -- in larger fleet actions -- small carrier contingents could bring a sizeable
number of Gladiator fighter shuttles into the fight.
