I've heard that losing a strategic cruiser will cost you skill points. How many and from what skills?

If if you loose a T3 ship while actively piloting it you will loose one level from one of the racial subsystem skills. Only the subsystem skills of the same race as the ship in question are at risk. All your other skills, including the t3 ship skill itself (ie. Caldari Strategic Cruiser), are safe. Which one of the five subsystem skills that loose a level is random as far as I know.
The subsystem skills are all rank 1 skills so the time to re-train is not that bad.
