Light Cruiser

The light cruiser is a type of Cruiser.

It may either be similarly armed to a traditional cruiser with less defenses, similarly defended and more lightly armed, or faster at the expense of either armament or defenses. In this sense, the light cruiser is akin to the much larger Battlecruiser.

Regardless of role (typically escort) the light cruiser rarely masses over a few million tons.
