BRAD'S COMMENTS:  Typical assault ship & troop transport.  No bells and whistles, no real offensive oomph.  Use it as window dressing for a planetary assault.  Has some decent power, so if it comes down to it you can energize those disruptor banks.  But I have yet to be able to win any kind of fight if my forces are decimated to the point that my assault ships have to start lobbing volleys.

From the FASA Star Trek ROMULAN SHIP RECOGNITION MANUAL, circa 1985
M-4 (Wings of Justice) Class IX Assault Ship
Known Sphere Of Operation: Conflict zones
Data Reliability: D
Major Data Source: Project Grey Ghost; Klingon Sector Intelligence
        The M-4 assault ship, reportedly capable of carrying up to 300,000 metric tons of cargo or 1,800 troops and their equipment, is thought to be the main transport for Romulan ground forces.  Introduced about Stardate 2/08, intelligence reports that the vessels have participated in several invasions.  Of the more than 150 built, nearly all remain in active service.  Intelligence reports show no record of any being sold to the civil sector, and none are known to be operating outside the empire.  The vessel likely is named in reference to the following quote: "The Romulan soldier will lead the way and secure the foundations of the Road to the Stars, for he will be borne on the wings of justice --- Arenius Triario, Commander."  According to The Eridam Papers, this historic statement was made by Commander Triario as the Romulan fleet departed for a great battle with the Corillians.  Triario was victorious and returned a hero.
