AI War:Neinzul Youngling Tiger
| The heavily-armored Neinzul version of a tank, with huge amounts of armor and firepower, but the lowest lifespan of any Neinzul ship.
Youngling ships are all exceedingly inexpensive and fast, with a very short life span (health automatically drains when not in transports or other forms of storage).

How to use in your fleet
Since they are cheap, all Neinzuls act as effective screeners or throw-away forces at the head of a regular fleet. You'll only have to pay attention to their individual stats when some niche task appears. The Neinzul fleet has its own pseudo-Triangle: Neinzul Youngling Commandos favour light hulls (anti-Fighter), Neinzul Youngling Tigers favour heavy-hulls (anti-Missile Frigate), and Neinzul Youngling Weasel favour rare hulls (anti-Bomber).
In the above system, the Tiger is the polycrystal Bomber that you can take hunting Starships and Fortresses. They are much slower than the other Neinzuls, so it is more difficult to wield these ships without a nearby Regen Chamber or production source. So much, slower, that one might as well just send their faster cousins when chasing down a stray Artillery-hulled annoyance. Of course, Tigers are still faster than most of the player's ships - and better than Bombers on Ion Cannon-infested planets.
