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 well 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 [[Ork]]s that finally made the Tau design an alternate vessel for interstellar combat, a role which the Explorer is ill suited to undertake alone.{{Fn|1}}
== Configurations ==
The Explorer has undergone many different refits and reconfigurations since its inception. The two most common that are still active within the [[Kor'vattra]] are the Mk XXIII Vash'ya and the Mk XXIV Bor'kan configurations.{{Fn|1}}
