The Cruiser is a medium-sized naval ship class. Although more lightly-armed than its larger cousin, the Dreadnought, the Cruiser is faster and more agile. It also possesses more firepower than the Destroyer, but lacks its anti-submarine capabilities. On Nations, the Cruiser is typically used as a screening and escort ship.
TNT Cannon Director signs can be used on the Cruiser to change the trajectory of TNT fired from the craft's dispensers, as well as modify its properties. Cruisers can also use torpedoes, albeit fewer than destroyers and submarines.
More information: Direct Control - Naval Mode
The Cruiser will always cruise in the direction of its "front". If you try to cruise sideways, the Cruiser will move diagonally in that direction instead.
The "front" of the Cruiser is determined in two ways.
Cruisers use the Naval Direct Control mode. Direct Control mode is superior to manual movement during combat.
