[[Category:Fleet (Tau)]][[Category:Naval Vessels]]
The '''Gal'leath''' class battleship (known as the '''Explorer''' among the [[Imperials]]) was the first major interstellar vessel developed by the [[Tau]]. Compared to the average speed of an [[Imperial ]] ship in the warp, the Explorer could barely approach a fifth of this speed. It is also significantly less armed, and armoured, compared to most battleships. It does have a massive cargo capacity however and is much cheaper to produce than other ships of similar tonnage. Indeed, it was only the advent of war with the [[Orks]] that finally made the Tau design an alternate vessel for interstellar combat, a role to which the Explorer is ill suited to undertake alone.<sup>1,2</sup>
