Although a type of Cruiser, the battlecruiser departs from the typical role of cruisers as escort craft and enters the realm of the heavy armor and weapons of capital ships. The battlecruiser nominally sees use as a commerce raider and, despite it's very heavy armament (similar to a Battleship) is unsuitable for most heavy ship-to-ship combat.

Battlecruisers are expensive and massive in comparison to most cruiser types vessels.
