The Cruise Missile is the only Missile compatible with the Cruise Missile Launcher. Besides being used in Starship vs Starbase combat, the Cruise Missile is also used in Starship vs Starship combat when the defending player's Starbase has a Cruise Missile Launcher built. When the defending player is being attacked, a Cruise Missile is launched every ~15 seconds at the attacking player. In this situation, the Missile only deals the Direct Hull Damage and cannot be dodged by Engines.
- Advantages: Provides additional DPS for the Starbase, and the player when he/she is being attacked.
- Disadvantages: None, it's the only Missile available.
