One of the major classes of Andorian warship during the mid 22nd century, the Kumari class was a common sight to any who had dealings with the Andorian Imperial Guard.2 The ships were a very impressive design for their time, approximately the equal of their Vulcan counterparts3 and significantly superior to the Human NX class. Indeed, one Andorian officer noted that she hadn't seen weapons such as phase cannon since her early tactical training.4 After the Xindi attack on Earth in 2153 the NX received several weapon and defensive system upgrades which brought them closer to matching the Andorian ships5, and in 2154 the NX-01 fought alongside the Andorian fleet to prevent a Vulcan attack on Andoria.3

The Kumari was fitted with a shuttlebay4, and carried a transporter system.5 The ship had two external nacelles for the warp drive, located above the 'wings' to port and starboard. Two large impulse engines occupied the stern.6

Like many of the Enterprise ships we don't know a lot about the Andorian warships but you have to assume that the real DITL would know every detail, so I have to speculate rather rampantly. I've pitched the ships to be comfortably superior to the original NX class and an approximate match for the Vulcans. We don't have a class name for these ships, so I have gone with the usual site practice of naming them after the first ship of the class seen on screen.

If anybody knows of more official specifications - especially in areas such as dimensions, crew complement, etc, then I would be more than happy to hear about it.
