Inquisitorial Cruisers are Cruiser-class vessels used by the Inquisition. These vessels are specially constructed for the Inquisition, and wield technology and weaponry available only to the fleets of Mars itself. As a result they are faster, better armed, and better protected than Imperial Navy ships of the same class. While a few standard pattern are used by the Inquisition, they are just as often purpose-constructed and optimized for specific roles. These ships are usually used by Inquisitors mission-to-mission before being transferred, though it is not unheard of for individual Inquisitors to have permanent Cruisers attached to their names.
