What ship is this? (I'm relatively new.)

I've always liked those fan-made "Raise the Flag" videos for the EVE factions, but since I'm still pretty new to it all, I was curious as to the name of a certain ship in the video. (This one: Raise the Flag III: Fear the Tribes)

The ship itself pilots in a vertical position, to me it looks like a potato wedge. It's seen a few good times throughout the video, notably at 1:43 when it is zoomed in on with a still frame. At least four of them are at 1:30 as well.

Thanks in advance for any answers.

Minmatar dreadnaught Naglfar

Side note, those videos are awesome, but with new footage available, some of them could really use an update.

It's a Minmatar Dreadnought called a Naglfar.

Ever since seeing one, I've wanted to be able to pilot one at some point. Freakin' artillery tower is what it looks like.

And now it's finally becoming a projectile only platform. No more pesky split weapons. Just don't try to jump into it ahead of time. Spend at least a year or more in sub-capital ships, join a corp/alliance using these and ask them for tips on the ship.

The Tornado is also vertical and is a Battlecruiser that uses large turrets but has next to no HP. Different role entirely, but vertical ships are cool, simply because they are:

Opened this thread and was disappointed by how long it took for that to be posted.

On your way up, take a look at the Tempest/Tempest Fleet Issue/Vargur line as well. Solid ships, especially with coming updates, and most importantly:
