AEGIS Cruisers are nimble and lethal. They can bombard up to two squares away; they have radar so they can see two squares regardless of blocking terrain; and they can see submarines when within their radar range. All in all the AEGIS Cruiser is a formidable warship.
A coastal city needs aluminum and uranium in its Strategic Resource box to build an AEGIS Cruiser.
Cruisers have long served in the role of escort and defensive vessels, screening carrier task forces and amphibious assaults from enemy ships and aircraft. In recent years, the abilities of the cruiser have been upgraded significantly. In addition to their traditional five-inch guns, cruisers also carry batteries of Harpoon and Tomahawk missiles. The latest development in cruiser armament is the AEGIS surface-to-air missile system, which allows cruisers to target and fire their missiles more accurately and more effectively than ever before. The cruisers of today are highly capable of intercepting and destroying enemy submarines, surface ships, aircraft, and missiles.
