The Vrrka Assault Carrier is a common modification of the venerable Gorn battleship of the BH2 type. During the late 2250s, tensions along the Gorn/Romulan border prompted the Gorn to convert several Vrrka Assault Carriers for duty. Unlike most enemy assault ships, the Gorn assault carrier relies heavily on its twelve assault shuttles to aid in the deployment of troops to a planetary target. The ship is also capable of beaming troops to ground targets, but does not have any specialized transporter systems to aid in this regard.
The armament of the Vrrka is considerably weaker than that of the Bhrataar Battleship. These craft were never meant for direct combat, but instead to move in once the battle in space was largely won.
