Cruisers are one of six main types of hulls. All cruisers are based on biblical names. These ships have an emphasis on survival, they feature more armor and shield slots than other ships.
They have a large firing arc and perform well in medium and close range combat. They are easy to pilot effectively in combat. When upgraded through the crafting system, they gain substantial bonus damage against cutters and frigates, which are other classes of ships that prefer medium and close range combat.
