Come take a look at the Tau Gal’leath Vash’ya, which is a massive ship capable of putting out firepower enough for a flotilla, while carrying one for support.
The T’au have a role to play in Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2, expanding their sphere of influence as the galaxy starts to burn–the Gal’leath Vash’ya is one of the first Tau ships designed for interstellar travel. It comes equipped with a massive cargo capacity and a devastating railgun array mounted on it, meaning that it can help support your ships as you strike out against the enemies of the Greater Good.
The Gal’leath Vash’ya really helps give you a sense of scale for the game. It’s one thing to see the ships sort of throwing particle effects at each other, but seeing the Explorer (to use the human nickname for the Tau vessel) next to the rest of the Tau fleet conveys the sense of massiveness that’s layered in the game, hidden behind equally massive battlescapes and cutscenes.
Let’s turn it over to the in-game engine to see some of the ship in action:
Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2 releases in January, 2019 bringing updated forces, new rules, and new flagships to each of the factions in Battlefleet Gothic. Watch as Trazyn the Infinite and Ursarkr Creed and Abaddon the Despoiler clash against the backdrop of the 13th Black Crusade and the Fall of Cadia. But the Opening of the Eye of Terror is only the beginning…

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is the new real-time strategy game adapted from Games Workshop’s famous tabletop game that portrays the epic space battles of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
Expanding on the groundwork laid out by the first game, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is a full-blown sequel – bigger, richer, more impressive and more ambitious than the original game. It will include, at launch, all 12 factions from the original tabletop game and its expansions it is based on: the Imperial Navy, Space Marines, Adeptus Mechanicus, Necrons, Chaos, Aeldari Corsairs, Aeldari Craftworld, Drukhari, the T’au Merchant and Protector Fleets, Orks, and finally, the Tyranids.
The latest dramatic story development in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the Gathering Storm and the 13th Black Crusade, serves as the canvas for three extensive and dynamic campaigns with high narrative values, focusing on the Tyranids, the Necrons, and the Imperium. Explore the systems in the Eye of Terror, with or against renowned characters such as Belisarius Cawl, Gulliman and more.
With bigger battles, refined gameplay, improved multiplayer modes and features for a better and more balanced online experience, as well as improvements across the board and even more customisation options for fleets and ships, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 promises to be the ultimate Warhammer 40,000 space battle experience.
