Seriously?
Everything on that page that is in white letters in fanfiction and the guy who made the site even admitted it sometimes contradicts established facts.
I suggest you read the colour key (a button in the upper right corner) for that site.
Don't get him started on that. Next thing you know he'll be spouting off about how every ship should have stats based solely on their in-universe dimensions and mass, while blissfully refusing to actually provide anything resembling verifiable in-universe measurements.

Bortasque like enhancements will almost certainly come....

For Cryptic's Ha'apax Warbird. You know, the Cryptic designed ship that's even bigger than the D'Deridex, that turns even slower and has a built in disembarking pet. They'll package the Ha'apax up into a three pack with all the enhancements that you're asking to happen to the D'Deridex.

There's no other heavy cruiser with a battle cloak to compare it to.
Wait, is that confirmed?

It says it on the shipyard page, so does every other romulan ship. So. Probably?

I think I said something about needing to wait and see how the unknowns shake out....

But that's not what a D'Dreidex is.... it's a bruiser cruiser. In fact, it shouldn't be able to even fit cannons. It's suppose to be a beam boat.

You can't just put your favorite BO layout on a ship because you like it and be damned with the canon.

Because of inertial dampeners perhaps? They remove the inertia from the ships so every ship in this game should turn on a dime regardless of size.

Just...no.

Inertial dampeners keep things inside the ship from getting salsified by the extreme acceleration forces incurred during spaceflight (especially FTL travel). They have no effect whatsoever on the ship's flight characteristics.

From what's on TRIBBLE, all Warbirds get a battlecloak and can equip DCs and DHCs.

[The retrofit of the T1 BoP gets an EBC, a fixed BO layout and a turnrate of 18.]
