The Saurian Class Light Cruiser can be considered as the little elegant brother of the Lizard Class Cruiser. It has a reduced hull mass, one torpedo tube less and shows due to that a lower fuel consumption. This makes the Saurian Class very versatile for cloaked reconnaissance and freighter attacks deep in enemy space.

While the Lizard Cruiser is capable of taking out enemy key ships like the Cobol, D7 Coldpain and Firecloud, the Saurian Class will only be seen when laying mines, attacking a freighter, or the enemy's fighter production.
