The ship has slightly lower defensive statistics and power availability than the Battlecruiser but has an increased sublight speed of 0.3 LYs/m. Whereas the Battlecruiser focuses more on defence due to its flak cannons, the Solar Cruiser instead focuses on room installation. Bespoke to the Solar Cruiser it uses a modular room systems which allows it to fit rooms free of charge. This allows the vessel to be well suited for focusing on training skills.
