''It's pretty hard to overestimate the effectiveness of this cruiser... it has, by far, the best anti-fighter capability of any cruiser in the game, and nearly the best of any ship in the gamefar as I'm concerned only the [[GTCv Deimos|Deimos]] really outdoes it in that respect. The Aeolus however is no super-warship; like all cruisers, it's really ineffective in an anti-capital respect, though superior to most other cruisers. The missions of [[Portal:Freespace 2|Freespace 2]] are cruel to the Aeolus and do not show its full potential. For example in [[Clash of the Titans II]] all of the cruisers were severly damaged, even though at full strength Aeoli can fight off ~ 12 bomber wings and survive. In [[Their Finest Hour]] (which also causes many people to doubt the [[GTVA Colossus]]) many allied warships failed to have their beams armed, decreasing both their capital-ship weaponry and their anti-fighter defenses.''

''is no really no "safe" approach when attacking an Aeolus, so the the only real option is to use slashing attacks: Line up outside its range, charge in at full power, afterburn on the way out and <b>do not turn</b> until at least 1500M over onto its other side''

The GTC Aeolus was an anti-fighter cruiser used by the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Alliance against both the Neo-Terran Front and the Shivans. Although the Aeolus was produced in limited numbers, those few that saw deployment were deadly against hostile fighters and bombers. Three Aeolus cruisers escorted the GTD Bastion to its final route to seal off the jump node between Capella and Vega.

The biggest, baddest, and meanest cruiser EVER. The Aeolus will smack you up.
FS2 Tech Room Description
The GTC Aeolus is the first cruiser class ever produced by the RNI shipyards orbiting Laramis II. Only two dozen of these cruisers were put into service in GTVA fleets, with production ending in 2365. Allied Command assigns Aeolus-class ships primarily to guard slow-moving convoys against fighter and bomber wings, as these cruisers are severely out-gunned by most capital ships in service today. Their flak and AAA turrets serve as marvelous deterrents to smaller craft, however.
