I've noticed that people in the FS community tend to look at cruisers just as mobile anti-fighter platforms, like the Aeolus, Leviathan, and Mentu.
But, people generally don't think of cruisers being much good against other capital ships (with the exception of the Lilith).
So my question is, why not make more anticap cruisers? They would be cheaper to pump out than a corvette, and easier to replace. Not to mention, 2 cruisers can be in more places at once than 1 corvette.
And they wouldn't necessarily perform poorly against fighters. They just wouldn't perform quite as well as a ship devoted to such a role. Which means that an anticap cruiser and an antifighter cruiser would make a great team.
Anyone agree/disagree? Because I've only seen 3 anticap cruisers (Tyr, Dainishi, Tuket) and I figured that the GTVA could learn a lesson or two from the Shivans in that respect.
