The Artillery Cruiser Edit
An Artillery Cruiser is the most vulnerable ship in the fleet, but none can match its destructive power. Each Artillery Cruiser is equipped with a long-range rail cannon strong enough to destroy enemy armor from miles away. Shift Energy to weapons to decimate enemy ships with several well-placed shots.
As the official description says, Artillery Cruisers are glass cannons. Literally. They boast impressive firepower at an enourmous range of 7km, but can be easily destroyed by a skilled Corvette (flak cannons with Energy to weapons can defend against corvettes, make sure to conserve energy for when Corvettes strike). They are great suppression ships, with a sustained damage that can make even a mighty Dreadnought struggle to stay alive. Their Modules are tailored to offer even more damage potential or to enhance their suvivability and give them a chance to survive Corvette ambushes.

|LORE:||The first prototype of the Nox dates back to the Great Solar War when House Oberon salvaged a Transhuman Warship to reverse engineer it to make it useful for practical countermeasures. Even though it had a very slow production cycle at that time, since for every Nox class artillery cruiser a Transhuman warship was needed, it became soon the pride and joy of the House Oberon megacooperation|

|LORE:||The Silesia is the flagship of a rogue Sinley Bay captain, whose identity remains hazy, but has gained a reputation as a fearsome destructive force. Some speculate he could even be Transhuman. What is known is that he and his crew lost their secluded asteroid base during a Pan Colonial Fleet raid. Ever since then, the Captain of the Silesia roams through the Solar System, hunting the PCF crew responsible for the raid, crushing anyone who gets in his way.|
|The Svarog class artillery cruiser was one of the first designs to feature a fully integrated gun design. The main gun's fireing angle is limited, but it packs a hell of a punch.
Unlock: Rank 15
