|— In-Game Description|
Cutters are one of six main types of hulls. They place emphasis on forward speed, travelling faster than most ships both in combat and on the map, and are synonymous with "hunter".
Cutters have a 65-degree firing arc and are straightforward to pilot, relying on their speed to catch up to enemy fleets and deal damage at close range. However, they strafe slowly which makes them less agile than frigates.
All Demon Corps cutters and below are named after a reptile (e.g. Taipan).
All Xeno Division Hulls are named after something related to destruction (e.g. Decimator).
All A.X.I.S. Hulls are named after something related to defense (e.g. Vindicator).
All Marauder Hulls are named after something related to savagery (e.g. Ravager).
All Altairian Hulls are named after something related to Medieval (e.g. Cavalier).
