In fact, in fluff the Grey Knights strike cruiser Rubicon (and the Malleus apparently makes sure that GK ships are ven better-built than "standard" SM ships) was ripped apart by an IN cruiser and two escorts. To be fair, though, the remaining half of the ship was still able to land its complement of 'Knights.
