An assault cruiser is a starship classification used by at least the Cardassian Union and the Klingon Empire.

In the Cardassian military an assault cruiser was in essence a heavy battle cruiser and in some cases could operate as carriers. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 2: Starships of the Cardassian Union)

In the Klingons often describe their assault cruisers as "larger more powerful fighters" and they were often tasked with leading squadrons of attack fighters. Some of the larger assault cruiser designs were also meant to function as carrier vessels. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 3: Ships of the Klingon Empire)

Assault cruisers were massive New Republic star cruisers that were commonly used during the 4th and 5th battles of Coruscant. They measured over 2500 meters long and carried a full complement of 20 fighter squadrons (12 fighters each). They were armed with 110 turbolasers, 100 ion cannons, 50 point defense lasers and a superlaser mounted on the front of the ship in the same way the superlaser was mounted on the Eclipse. They were crewed by 100,000 officers.

Only 20 of these ships were made, but one could outmatch an Allegiance Super Star Destroyer. Later on 2 Super Assault Cruisers were made, measuring about 20 kilometers in length. They were armed with 20,000 turbolasers. 19,000 ion cannons, 5000 point defense lasers and 3 super laser cannons. These ships had a crew complement of 500,000 officers, 100,000 fully armed troopers and a full complement of 50 squadrons comprised of 12 fighters each.
