Strike Cruisers are designed to engage a specific target behind enemy lines. Like other cruisers, they have a science contingent and extended range. Strike Cruisers are often employed to engage a specific enemy squadron and can spend month in radio silence while on patrol. Strike Cruisers are also used to transport special forces personnel to a desired target. Strike Cruisers must employ special sensors and costly dampening equipment to achieve their stealthy goals, but prove well worth the cost when used during times of conflict.
