Cruisers are beginning heavy-weight vessels, and the largest light ships in space. They are designed to have thick armor, heavy guns, and be specialised to dealing death at anything that comes into their range. They are slow, unable to dodge anything but spinal weapons, but make up for this in having the most capable defensive and offensive systems in a fleet of non-capships.
