Cruisers

Cruisers of each force from AW2.

Cruisers are a Naval Unit. They are quite powerful and can survive several turns when faced with a Battleship. Their main use though is that they are very effective against Submarines and can easily destroy them. They can also attack Air Units who are flying over the water. They are even good against Missile Boats. As well as all of this they can carry up to 2 Battle Helicopters, 2 Transport Helicopters, or 1 of each.

Trivia

Despite being named as Cruisers, all of them have the box missile launcher position more similar to some destroyers and frigates, while the only cruiser that highly resembles those Cruisers is the CGN-36 California before overhauling in 1990.

The Orange Star and Rubinelle (NRA and 12th Battalion) Cruisers are very likely based on the American Brooke/Garcia class frigate.

Ironically, the Cruisers of the Russia/Soviet-theme Blue Moon is based on the American Farragut-class Destroyer 1958 Model, distinguished by the rarely-seen fully angled boiler.

The Yellow Comet, despite closely resembling the Imperial Japan, has the Cruisers more similar to the Chinese Type-053H2G Frigate for its 2x3tube SSM launcher.
