|The SC Cain|
FS1 Tech Room Description
The Cain is by far the most common cruiser in the Shivan fleet. It is also the weakest. However, the Cain should not be underestimated. It has many turrets, as well as a cluster bomb defensive mechanism. As a strike cruiser, the Cain mostly appears in attacks against GTA or PVN capital ships and cruisers. In these cases, it should be destroyed immediately. The primary weakness of the Cain appears to be its unshielded turrets. Most of the turrets on the Cain can be destroyed with minimal damage.
The Cain is a Class B threat.
FS2 Tech Room Description
The weakest of the Shivan cruiser classes is designated SC Cain. These vessels were commonly encountered during Great War battles. Cains are considered to be slightly stronger than the GTC Fenris cruiser class.
The Cain, is considerably stronger than a Fenris, but has an even worse anti-fighter point defense: with only one AAA turret on the bottom rear of the ship and a couple of weak missile launchers, it leaves the top of the vessel virtually undefended. As far as anti-capital work goes in cruisers, the Cain is pretty good, with a single SRed it will most likely take some skin of the nose of whatever capital ship it attacks it before going down, which it will with only 20,000 hitpoints. A wing of Herc IIs or Myrmidons should have no trouble taking down the Cain, nor should a Deimos, and a wing of bombers will take this ship down very quickly, it only takes ten Cyclops torpedos to take this beast down.
