This ship shows up when a Corporate station is destroyed, by the player or by an enemy. These stations include the Corporate Enclaves, Corporate Trading posts, Ice Farms, arms and armor dealers, etc. The Corporate Cruiser will attack whoever destroyed the station. When this ship shows up, several freighters spawn as well to reclaim the goods in the destroyed station.
|Quadrocarbide armor X24, Non-critical X16|
|Plasma shield generator|
|Rasiermesser launcher X2|
Very hard to kill early game, so it is a great deterrent from destroying stations. However, once the player gets to acquire level 7 tech, they can have a chance at taking one of these down. The cruiser also leaves when its shield is down, so make sure to follow it and take it down before its shields recharge. Also, ICX missile defense turret type weapons won't stand a chance at stopping the full barrage of gotha-10's, as the rate of fire is too fast.
|Warning: Possible Spoiler Ahead|
