Missile Cruiser.png

The Missile Cruiser is the Light Ship of the Information Age.png Information Age, available to upgrade from the Cruiser and are built at the Shipyard.


When Cruisers become Missile Cruisers, they gain +5 hit points, +1 attack strength, +1 attack range, +2 movement speed, and +1 line of sight.

The Missile Cruiser is a lightly-armored but moderately fast cruiser, designed primarily as a naval defense ship to destroy transports, root out enemy Attack Submarines and shoot down enemy aircraft before they get too close to the more vulnerable Advanced Battleships and Aircraft Carriers.

They also have a great sight range and the speed to meet threats to the ships they're escorting.
