The largest known disruptor employed on Romulan starships, the T Type, named for T’Kol, the Star Empire’s foremost weapons expert, is believed to be at least equal in sheer strength to the sizable cannon of the Klingons’ Negh’var Class warships. Like most Romulan weaponry, however, it has displayed greater range and accuracy than its Alpha and Beta Quadrant counterparts, making it the most lethal single-shot directed energy weapon currently in service. However, the necessary machinery is believed to be almost disadvantageously cumbersome, meaning that, as yet, only the D’Deridex Class warbird is large enough to carry even one of these weapons. Like most Romulan disruptor cannon (as opposed to emitters), it is capable of firing pulses or beams.
