Kir'qath Class Starship
From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
The Kir'qath (or Defender) is an Escort vessel, and for a time was the only true Escort in the Kor'vattra.
The Kir'qath is unusual for an Escort in that it is quite slow and not as maneuverable as the Imperial Sword Frigate that inspired it. It possesses greater firepower than a Sword however, being equipped with both a multi-arc Railgun battery and a respectable Torpedo salvo.
