A Goa'uld mid-range bomber. The mid-sized Al'kesh is maneuverable, heavily-armed, and capable of firing enormous blasts of plasma energy. It may be used for combat in space, but is also capable of entering and maneuvering within a planet's atmosphere.

The Al'kesh's primary weapon is a double gun turret, located on the ventral side of the ship.
