Unit Description:
      The Thuverl Salan is the main combatant of the Zentraedi fleets. A jack of all trades, it is large, well armed and has a sizable complement of mecha. Fifty tactical and officer battlepods can be launched in a relatively short amount of time. If so desired, the Cruiser can also be equipped with Aerospace fighters for space-combat and support of the fleet. The ship is also equipped with several small scouts, and a sufficient number of orbital dropships to depoy the entirety of its troops to a planetary surface. Its armament is a mix of ship to ship and laser batteries, as well as anti-ship torpedoes and point defense missile turrets. The Cruiser has decent manoeuvrability, which is important as most of its firepower is orientated foreward. Countless numbers of these ships were constructed by the vast Tirolian empire, but their numbers are far diminished in the present day, as hundreds of thousands were destroyed during the Zentraedi Holocaust. Even so, those remaining in rogue Zentraedi fleets pose a very real threat.
