"This is the Garden of Kadesh. For thirteen generations we have protected it from the unclean. The Turanic Raiders who came before you refused to join and were punished for this trespass. Like theirs, your ship has already defiled this holy place. If you have come to join we welcome you and will spare your ship until all have disembarked. If you have come to consume the garden you will be removed at once. What are your intentions?" - Kadeshi Ambassador

The Kadesh Swarmer is one of the most dangerous fighters encountered in the Homeworld War; it is 50% faster than the Kushan Scout, yet it mounts corvette-class guns and is better armored than a Defender. Unfortunately, it achieves this superior performance at the expense of fuel capacity, carrying less than a third as much fuel as a Kushan strike craft. The Swarmer can remain in combat for only a short time before it must withdraw and rendezvous with a Fuel Pod.
