The Avatar-class Heavy Cruiser is an expensive, but deadly Kushan super capital ship invented during the Exodus. Mounting 4 Ion Cannons and 6 heavy turrets, it can single-handedly wipe out multiple frigates. Its heavy armor and short repair time make it one of the most durable ships as well. To offset the great firepower and durability of this ship. Because of the high profile nature of the class, it is best used as a distraction while lighter ships engage the enemy. The Avatar's superior armor will allow it to soak up a great deal of damage that would have destroyed lesser ships in mere minutes.
