    The Loki is a tech level 3 strategic cruiser of the Minmatar Republic in EVE Online. It’s the only strategic cruiser to support both armors and shield tanking. It also has a covert reconfiguration subsystem that allows it to become a combat cloaky.

    "The Minmatar's Loki Strategic Cruiser is one of the best Eve Online ships that you can get in the game, granted you can meet the high skill requirements and price tag. This T3 cruiser features plenty of modularity and allows you to fit it however you want."

    The Gila is a ship in EVE Online, categorized as a tech level 1 cruiser of the Caldari. It has the ability to field two medium drones that do 12 damage each, and an additional drone large enough to carry extra flights and replacements.

    "This is one of the best cruisers in the game with an unmatched drone power in its ship class. It has a large enough drone cargo bay to field two medium drones that do the damage of 12. Add to this a nice bonus to shield resistances makes it a respectable shield tank for its size and one of the best Eve Online ship you can get."

    The Vexor is a cruiser of the Gallente Federation in EVE Online and is categorized as tech level 1. It's used to survey potentially hostile sectors and can stay on duty for a long duration. It is also capable of defending itself against attacks.

    "The Vexor strikes a good balance between durability and damage and is a good choice to use for surveillance purposes. This is one of the best and most viable Eve Online ships if trained for and equipped properly. It's also good a starter ship as it's cheap and easy to replace."

    The Legion in EVE Online is a tech level 3 strategic cruiser under the Amarr Empire. It is popular in wormholes due to its battleship level tank and high damage for a cruiser sized package. It lacks in DPS but has significant damage in short ranges.

    "The Legion is a strategic cruiser by the Amarr Empire and is one of the most advanced cruisers that you can possibly get in the game. It shares the same inherent characteristics as its contemporaries from other empires in the game. It's highly customizable, and versatile once you're able to meet its skill requirements and offer it price."

    The Tengu, categorized as tech level 3, is a strategic cruiser of the Caldari State in EVE Online. It’s popular for missioning because of its strong shield tank and long-range missiles. It’s normally used as a kiter in PVP equipped for close range.

    "If wormhole exploration is your thing, then, this is a ship to consider. A good combination of long-range missiles, a strong shield tank, good damage, and small mass are some of the reason why it is preferred by many."

    The Proteus is a tech level 3 strategic cruiser from the Gallente Federation in EVE Online. It’s not a good choice for missions due to its limited range but makes up for it as a niche pick for a cloaky PVP ganker with high DPS blasters.

    "The Proteus is the Gallente Federation's strategic cruiser ship and is another choice for players in the T3 cruiser class. Any of the faction-specfific strategic cruisers will serve you well, sharing the same properties with only minor differences. It will all boil down to preference."

    The Stratios is the cruiser for the Sisters of EVE faction in EVE Online and was introduced in Rubicon 1.0. Its main advantage is its cruiser-sized cargo hold and its ability to field a tank strong enough to survive a ghost site container explosion.

    Xiang Qiao

    "The Stratios and Astero both share the same low requirements and relatively strong effectiveness. Both are quite agile, can equip a covert ops cloak with the Stratios edging out in terms of cargo, fitting slots being a cruiser class ship. Both are ridiculously expensive but bother will serve you well if you can afford them."

    The Astero is a frigate of the Sisters of EVE faction in EVE Online. It’s primarily designed as a cloak exploration ship with the capability of extended operation away from stations. It is suitable for PVP supplemented by the Covert Ops Cloak.

    "The Astero isn't the most powerful pirate frigate in the game but it doesn't take much to train for it due to its low requirements, especially for a shop that can equip a covert ops cloak. A bonus, for me at least, is that it's the nice-looking ship to boot."
