The GVC Aten is the oldest and weakest cruiser-type vessel still in use in the Vasudan fleet. The Aten was the primary Vasudan cruiser during the 14 Year War and The Great War. The Reconstruction period, and the development of the GVC Mentu and the GVCv Sobek diminished the significance of the Aten, but it was still in service during the Second Shivan Incursion in 2367.

FS1 Tech Room Description
The Aten class cruiser, while far stronger than most of the Vasudans warships, falls short as a attack cruiser. It does not have the armor or the firepower to stand up to GTA weaponry. With a cruiser speed of 25 m/s and only six weapon turrets, the Aten just cannot muster the kind of firepower needed to do real damage to targets of size. Most GTA pilots have learned to exploit the primary weakness of the Aten: its extremely weak weapons subsystem. The Aten class cruiser is considered by the GTA to be a Class B threat.
FS2 Tech Room Description
The GVC Aten is among the smallest and weakest of the GTVA's cruiser classes, with thin armor and only a few, relatively weak turrets. Terran fighters and bombers exploited these weaknesses during the early years of the Great War, when the Terran and Vasudans were still enemies. The Aten is most often seen in the current conflict as a rear guard defense for convoys or installations, backing up wings of fighters and bombers.
Aten was the solar disc in Egyptian mythology, that gave light to humanity. He became the only deity in the monotheistic religion of Amenhotep IV.
