The D'deridex-class was the successor to the Amarcan-class warbird of the 2340s and the War Eagle-class, enlarging its double-hull design and correcting some weaknesses which had become evident in the older vessels. The class was designed to be larger than any Federation or Klingon starship of the time. (TOS novel: Vulcan's Heart, ST reference: Star Trek: Starship Spotter)
The class was extremely successful and soon found its self making up the bulk the Imperial Romulan Fleet. D'Deridex-class vessels represented the Romulan Star Empire in numerous incidents and historical events and the class participated in many engagements in the Dominion War. (DS9 episodes: "Tears of the Prophets", "What You Leave Behind")
The D'deridex Advanced was a variant of the basic D'deridex-class starship. These ships were upgraded at Orias III by the Tal Shiar and joined with Cardassian Keldon-class ships for an invasion of Dominion territory in 2371. The IRW Belak was an example of this variant. (ST:CCG: The Dominion)
The D'deridex class's large size makes the vessels more intimidating, but also makes the class highly adaptable. The vessels are primarily meant for military purposes but can just as easily take on role of a science vessel or supply ship. (ST reference: Star Trek: Starship Spotter; WizKids module: Attack Wing)
This class of ships were known to possess research labs, reverse engineering terminals and intelligence gathering equipment making them capable of a wide variety of operations; both in the fields of combat and covert missions. (TNG video game: Starfleet Command III)
