Oh, so that's pretty much confirmation that the new BC's are turret slot heavy then?

*sigh*

I was so hoping they'd be limited to 5 or 6 to differentiate them more from BS's in a more obvious way rather than just having a PG/CPU limit imposed upon them.


I assume you mean other than being hella fast and paper thin...

Given our military alliance with the gallente it would be undiplomatic of me to choose favourites. None the less we expect these two ships to be more than a match for there caldari and amarr counter parts. XD

Agreed. If they ever redesign Concord ships I'd vote for that style.

Both ship designs presented so far are sizzlingly sexyful and suit their intended role perfectly

I had BC V and Large Blaster Spec IV in my plan already, but they get a new meaning now <3

I think the talos is neither gallente nor pretty and dear ccp do not put that web bonus on there DO NOT!
that bonus is much too powerful for such a cheap and expendable ship and should be reserved for ships much more expensive

also I think it would just be out of balance to give only this ship a bonus to e-war that essentially allows it to negate all the negative offensive bonuses of its ship class (bad tracking of large guns) which is supposed to balance the ship over battleships

further I think those ships should get their own class and not be battle cruisers they will be referred to tier 3 battle cruisers other ways anyway rather then battle cruisers

Quote CCP Fozzie: ... The days of balance and forget are over.

I don't want to be negative but It will die a horrible death while trying to get into blaster range. Also your drawing looks a thousand times better than the presented ship.

Ur art guys should have used this


It's going to boil down to two things (set up variations aside).

1: Did the Talos warp in on top of the Tornado? If yes, the win goes to the Talos.
2: Is the Tornado fast enough to keep outside of the Talos web range. If yes, win goes to Tornado.

I looked at that other ship you linked earlier. It does indeed look very Gallante, but it does so by taking the least appealing aspects of Gallante design. So if you like the melted lumpy look it's a classic.

The Talos takes some of the best (and most underused) aspects of Gallante design (typified by the Megathron) and slims it up to make it visually exemplify speed and an "in your face" attitude.

Overall I'm very pleased with it. I will also enjoy popping them with a stealth bomber immensely. Smile

I like the concept, I am not so sure about the nose of the ship...but all in all looks to be a welcome addition to the gallente family

I am not a fan of the looks of this ship. It looks like it has engines bolted on sideways to the top of the hull and the nose reminds me of a paper airplane.

Loved the Tornado. Do not love the Talos.

The parts that don't look so gallente'ish are in fact similar to the megathron hull, both with the "in your face" gamestile.



I like the front. Makes me want to say "don't get up all up in my grille, yo" or some other type of urban colloquialism.

Not a diplo.

I'm guessing you are talking about the weapons mounts? I kind of expected them to be a bit over sized on some of these ships to accommodate the Large weapons.

The nose is reminiscent of a sleek version of a Megathron bow.

This is true. But you all have the numbers to do it in Thrashers too. You just want to hunt in bigger and badder ships don't you? Blink

The design reminds me of the Proteus a bit (with a CPU Efficiency Gate and Hybrid Propulsion Armature).

Now if only we could get a frigate or destroyer variant designed along the lines of the Firbolg it would elevate gallante ship design to a sort of neo-classic retro style.

Power and speed personified.

Actually, its a Wyvern flying backwards... Lol

Turn it around so the large end is the front, and its a mini-wyvern style ship... If a missile boat, that could be a pretty cool design!

The original design has MUCH better proportion. The remake has made it look too chunky and turned the overall shape into a blob.

The front isn't as defined, and the same with the rear of the ship. The nose is now too fat, the extra engines nacelles (four instead of two on the original) make the rear end too fat and heavy. The additional front mounting hardpoints are overdone, making the nose flat and pug-like (a horrible thing) compared to the original.

Please fix it. You followed the Tornado's original intent much more precisely. Do the same for the Talos.
