The Apocrypha Cruiser is a menacing VEGA ship designed for lightning-fast assaults. VEGA hulls are known for their speed.
  — In-Game Description 

General

The Apocrypha Cruiser is a Tier 4 hull with standard VEGA Mining technology.

As a cruiser, this ship has great defensive capability and is designed to soak up damage.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Apocrypha Cruisers are usually used as blitz ships in both fleet and base combat due to their high health and decent forward speed, which allows them to survive longer and defeat the enemy before being destroyed themselves. The most common weapons used at this level are the Thermal Beam and Hydra Missile. Some older builds use Gladius Drivers to kite other cruisers and protect themselves against long-range frigates.

They are also popular sniper decoys, often equipped with Creeper Torpedoes to take out incoming squadrons. Regenerating shields such as the Repulsor Shield are extremely useful for mitigating repair time.

There is a debate on whether Fusion Thrusters or the more advanced Binary Thrusters are better for cruisers. It is recommended that you test with both and then determine it for yourself.

Disadvantages

Apocrypha Cruisers suffer from high repair time as a direct result of their massive health and shield energy. Battleships can easily kite them and take them out without suffering any damage in return, essentially dishing out repair time for free.
