The '''Ha'tak-Class mothership''' was the primary capital ship used by the [[Goa'uld]]. A Ha'tak carries a sigificant arsenal of  Heavy [[staff cannon]]s for ship-to-ship warfare and [[orbital bombardment]] as well as serving as a [[carrier]] for dozens of [[Death Glider]]s while being able to service other spacecraft and carrying up to a thousand [[Jaffa]] warriors.  Ha'tak class ships can enter planetary atmospheres. The number of Ha'tak class ships is believed to be in the hundreds. Cronus' Ha'tak had a speed of 32,000c.<ref>SG-1: Enemies</ref>

The primary armament of a Goa'uld Ha'tak are it's heavy [[staff cannon]] turrets for ship-to-ship combat. These have been been given on screen a firepower of up to 200 megatons. Hat'tak also are equiped with a set of faster-firing, [[Point Defense|anti-fighter]] staff cannon turrets.

<pre>
 +
JACOB
 +
We're entering the coronasphere. The good news is that we won't show up on anyone else's sensors.
 +
The bad news is that our sensors will be blocked as well.
 +
 
 +
CARTER
 +
So when we're ready to go, we won't know if someone's out there, waiting for us.
 +

 +
How long do we have?
 +
 
 +
JACOB
 +
About an hour without full shields. Ten hours with. Sam, want to give me a hand?
 +
</pre>
 +
A Ha'tak-class mothership is capable of sitting inside the Coronasphere of a blue giant for an hour without shields and ten hours with shields.<ref>SG-1: Enemies</ref>
 +
 
 +
The hull is also strong enough to take the combined assault from three ''Ha'taks'' for several minutes.<ref>SG-1: Off the Grid</ref>
 +
 
 +
== Power Plant ==
 +
The ''Ha'tak''-class is powered by a large naquadah reactor. Ha'taks also have an emergency power core.<ref>SG-1: Off the Grid</ref>
 +
 
 +
== Design ==
 +
A Ha'tak has an unusual design with a pyramidal core surrounded by an external framework. A Ha'tak-class ship is six to seven hundred meters across. Ha'tak class ships have hangers capable accomodating ''[[Tel'tak]]'' and [[Al'kesh-class bomber|''Al'kesh''-class]] vessels, as well as specialized racks for storing [[Death Glider]]s.
 +
 
 +
Normally, a Goa'uld Ha'tak-class ship has a large crew of Jaffa and Goa'uld technicians and overseers, but it can be operated to some degree with only a helmsman (at least for short periods of time).
 +
 
 +
== Variants ==
 +
Over the course of the Stargate franchise, several distinct variants on the Ha'tak design have appeared. This does not include various [[Goa'uld Flagship|superheavy flagships]] that the Goa'uld have built.
 +
 
 +
The first variant was Ra's Mothership, which lacked the external framework common to most Goa'uld Hat'aks. The general belief is that Ra's pyramid ship was not a military vessel, but a sort of personal yacht used by the most powerful of System Lords to go about his domain.<ref>Stargate: The Movie</ref>
 +
 
 +
After [[Apophis]] usurped control of Sokar's empire, a second variant was seen, an advanced prototype for a new and improved class of Ha'tak. The performance of this variant is unknown, as [[SG1]] destroyed it before its completion, and no other craft of it's class appeared before Apophis's final Death.<ref>SG-1: Upgrades</ref>
 +
 
 +
Later still, [[Anubis]] fielded a fleet of improved Ha'tak-class ships. These featured improved [[shield]]s and weapons, allowing it to take on an [[Asgard]] [[Beliskner-class]] spacecraft, although they could still be defeated by normal Ha'taks. These ships, unlike Apophis's prototype, were not specially built with improved systems, but rather were merely upgrades of conventional Ha'tak-class ships. In case of its weapons systems, it is not known if this is an improvement in firepower or merely penetration.<ref>SG-1: Revelations</ref>
 +
 
 +
== Notes ==
 +
One Ha'tak ship was captured by Stargate Command, the former [[flagship]] of the [[System Lord]] [[Cronus]]. It was then transferred over to the [[Tok'ra]] and was soon destroyed by [[SG-1]] (along with [[Apophis]]) after it got infested with [[Replicators]].
