The Assault Cruiser is an Admiral (Tier 5) level Federation Cruiser. Like all Cruisers, bar the Light Cruiser, they also enjoy a bonus to their subsystem power granting +5 to Weapons, Engines, Shields and Auxiliary. The most well known Assault Cruiser is the U.S.S. Enterprise-E which was commanded by former Captain made Ambassador Jean-Luc Picard. As of 2408 she was commanded by Captain Data.

This class was previously available as an extra ship skin at the C-Store, but as of Season 7 is exclusive to the Fleet Assault Cruiser. Players who purchased the skin prior to the Season 7 update may still use the Imperial skin on any Assault Cruisers or Assault Cruiser Refits they own.
The Assault Cruiser is a very powerful ship and a formidable adversary for any player, combining the innate Engineering abilities of Cruisers with a strong Tactical focus. In comparison to the Star Cruiser, which is the other Admiral Tier 5 level Cruiser for the Federation, they have one less Science station, one extra Tactical station and 200 less crew.
Assault Cruisers carry huge amounts of firepower with their 8 weapon slots (4 aft, 4 fore). They have very poor maneuverability and very slow at turning and coming to a dead-stop, but with a proper weapon setup they don't rely on it as much as other vessels.
Assault Cruisers have a good sized crew which helps with repair rates of the hull. In terms of hull they are tied at third strongest hull in the Federation fleet, alongside Star Cruisers and have good shields.
