Can provide a naval support of 3
Like many other naval units, the Cruiser is faster than ground units - in fact, its movement of 5 is the highest of any naval unit. It also has a respectable 6 attack and defense and can provide 3 naval support. Despite all this, the Cruiser does not come with one element of naval units that even primitive vessels like the Galley have: the Ranger Militia. The Cruiser also requires Steam Power to be researched before construction.
