I'll really be excited if the Mentor (Amarr ship) from the second contest gets made. Now that was cool looking.

Maybe the Tornado is set to replace the Tempest or the Typhoon. Smile

It looks Gallente in design. Maybe it's a multi-faction T3, so it will give bonuses based on each racial BS skill, AND it could have some basic subsystems that would designate it as DPS, EWAR, Support, etc., etc.

Good to see it is being worked on.

I wonder how old that picture is.

Hopefully we will see the Tornado in the winter expansion.


Taken last week ;)

I think they picked the wrong design.

Oh, well. What's done, is done, right?

I'm excited to see what they do with it. One of the Devs made it sound like there would be one (new ship) for other factions too.



True....

Where I am.

Webbing bonus would be interesting. Usually use arties on my Mael, so I hadn't ever really considered a webber BS with autos. Slow as they are, a web would be mighty nice to snag speedy targets. Like say, pirate Machariels that can fly circles around normal battleships Pirate

Haha don't be silly, T1 minmatar ewar is target painters, webs are a T2 bonus.

Enjoy your 7.5% bonus to target painter effectiveness and 5% bonus to large projectile turret rate of fire per level :)

Itsa giant belicose.

I really think this is just going to be the V3 remodel for the Tempest... and I'm just fine with that!

Elements of the past and the future combining to make something not quite as good as either.

Nice to see the pic and confirmation. Tempting to train for if there weren't so many other ships to train for.

I would have liked to fly the Morpheus, sort of the middle child between Hyperion and Thanatos, I s'pose. IIRC the Bateleur did not start out as a BS design, and I've never seen an image of the Abolition.

The ships that might have been...

Sweet!

So what does the version of the Tornado for the other races look like?

Do you have pictures for them also?

Oh, and who is the guy with the finger to his lips, and the guy working on the ship?

Sorry darling, but those are (from left to right) CCP Hedgehog and CCP Duckface.

More to the point, be it a T3 hull (not likely, hoping to be very, very wrong here) or a "simple" Battleship - I can't wait to see it float in space!

Good they are working on it. From what I understood the Tornado would be a new minmatar battleship introduced (with a nice storyline by dropbear & co I hope) and later on the other empires would react by building their own versions of the Tornado.

This would give the art team time to "catch up" and it would be a realistic approach. Although I fly Amarr only I do believe its a pretty ship. I am also curious about the Mentor and if that is going to be made. In fact I wouldn't mind that some empires had an extra battleship while others have extra cruisers or battlecruisers. It would shake things up.

PS the Oblivion looks nice ... (HINT HINT)

The competition was just to get the hull model into the game, not necessarily in the form that the designer intended, so there's no guarantee that the Tornado will be a battleship (let alone one with 7 midslots and a web bonus as was put on the original contest entry).

Hopefully they'll use it and the other new hull designs to fill gaps, rather than adding more ships for the sake of more ships.
