D'vas Lonarai Improved Bird of Prey
This rarely seen variant of the D’vas Bird of Prey was used by the Romulans as an advanced scout unit to provide intelligence data on neighboring sectors. Equipped with exceptional sensors, the D’vas Lonarai Improved Bird of Prey can insert itself into enemy territories using its cloaking device and take detailed scans of the region, usually in preparation for an attack.

In addition to a larger sensor array, the D’vas Lonarai Improved Bird of Prey also added two rear-mounted light plasma mortars. These weapons were installed to protect retreating D’vas Lonarais from pursuing warships.

The Romulan Star Empire made heavy use of D’vas Lonarais during their ultimately disastrous military campaigns against the Klingons in the first half of the 24th Century. Most were destroyed during the conflict.

Design Notes:
This is a little bit closer to the original FASA stats as far as armament goes. Looking at the stats I just thought it would be interesting for the Romulans to have an advanced form of the hull, and a scout with extra firepower seemed oddly infatuating :)
