The V'tir-class was a type of warbird that saw service with the Romulan Star Empire during the 24th century. The class entered service in 2369. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 5: Starships of the Romulan Star Empire; The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)
The design incorporates principles from the D'deridex-class and related vessels but instead of using the Argus-class as its basis chief engineer Praddus, the person in charge of the project, looked to designs that were influenced by the D7 class the Romulans obtained from the Klingons in the 23rd century. The result is what many see as a cross between the D7 and the D'deridex. The main hull is a single, slightly curved, structure that curves down sharply at it edges to hold the warp nacelles. The command hull is dome like and is joined to the main hull through a central spine that slopes slightly down to the main hull.
The vessel was a strong combatant. It combined the power of the D'deridex with the mobility and ability of the T'korex-class in a smaller frame. The class saw heavy action during the Dominion War. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 5: Starships of the Romulan Star Empire)
