The Cruiser is designed to be the “main” warship of a fleet, and a group of them will typically consist of the majority of a fleet’s medium range firepower. They will feature average speed, weapons, and defenses, but will be relatively cheap and quick to build, allowing a player to build up a decent fleet augmented by a few capital ships.
