The Crucible is a Spinal-focused Destroyer.
The Crucible is a fast Spinal Destroyer that can deal massive damage for its class. It stands out by having a red trail behind it.
The interior of this ship is very small. With only a small pilot seat and a screen (decal), the ship's interior is entered through a nocollide block at the top.
