Swift
Competing directly with the snipe and the various snipe upgrades the swift had to have a few less than optimal design features to make it appear inferior to the snipe and keep the old houses with the snipe production contracts happy.
To this end the swift has phaser-2s to allow P1s to go to snipe and war-eagle production. It uses a single plasma-G; mounted in a center line body mount rather than the more popular configuration of plasma-Fs on both warp nacelles. While this yeilds a close range alpha strike yeild of less than 50% of the snipes it does allow the swift to enguage the frigates of most other races at a distance outside of their optimal heavy weapons range.

Kite
Designed to sit between the Snipe and the Hawk series, the Kite kept the classic bird series hull shape but discarded the rest.
Seeing that they may be fighting the Federation at some stage in their galatic conquest the Kite pays more attention to drone defense that the tradational Romulan small ship with phaser threes and plasma-D racks covering each side. Labs were also installed to help with drone identification. The proble launcher was discarded as in a ship of this class having both systems could not be justified on a cost nor space basis. A secondary bridge has been added but most of the time this became the ships common room
