Kir'la Carrier Escort

Kir'la Carrier Escort[3]

The Kir'la Class Carrier Escort, codenamed "Warden", is a small warship of the Tau Empire.


The Kir'la accompanies the powerful Or'es El'leath carrier into combat. With their Gravitic Drive capability being extremely limited due to their small size, Kir'las are carried between the stars by their Or'es El'leath motherships' Gravitic Hooks and launched when they reach the destination system.[1a] Warden Class Gunships are armed with an array of Ion Cannons and Railgun Battery's.[2]

Three Kir'las took part in the Taros Campaign, fighting alongside their mothership, the A'Rho.[1b]
