A cruiser is a capital warship, larger than a destroyer but smaller than a battleship. Various subclasses of cruiser exist including heavy cruisers (generally distinguished by better armor), battlecruisers (generally having better weapons), and light cruisers (generally having better speed). It is notable that there is a class(Deutschland) of WWII era German Cruisers that the British press dubbed Pocket-Battleships because of their size, weapons and heavy armor when compared to standard cruiser designs.
