The Or'es El'leath class battleship is the largest ship of the Kor'Or'Vesh, the newest generation of Tau ships.

Overview

Also named the Custodian it retains the heavy carrier ability of its predecessor, the Gal'leath[1], able to transport three Warden Gunships that used as a defenders of Custodian during the battle,[4] and adds an array of port and starboard Railgun Batteries and Ion Cannons, has improved engine output and shielding capabilities and sports Deflector technology which significantly improves the armour value of the prow.[1]

The elegant design of the Or'es El'leath causes it to lack the durability of other Battleships, being more akin to a Grand Cruiser's hull value.[1]
