>I don't think anyone will send us up against a battlecruiser anytime soon.
Due to exponential growth in ship sizes in the Faction Wars (read: rule of cool/rule of stupid) some types of ships are actually ridiculously large. So large that the main classifications had to be redone to make room for all of the big ships.
All starships have since been grouped as types of Cruisers under the current scheme.
Light Cruisers cover anything between 100m to 1,500m in length.
Medium cruisers are anything between 1,900m and 4,000m.
Heavy cruisers are generally found in the 5,000m range.
Anything larger than a heavy cruiser counts as a Super Heavy Cruiser.
This can cause some confusion as Corvettes, Frigates, Attack Cruisers, battle cruisers and older battleships all fall within the current Light Cruiser designation.
