Passively tanked scorpion navy issue and rattlesnake may give the bhaalgorn a run for it's money again ;p

Indeed they might......Personally, i've only had a friend using a regular raven that was passively tanked, torpedo fitted and using a single large NOS to keep it's webber, warp scrambler and target painter operational, and the raven had good passive resists to EM and heat damage while i was in my bhaalgorn and i still managed to kill it, though the fight took several minutes and i was almost in hull when his ship blew up.

The main point though is that there isn't a single umbeatable and invincible ship in the game, and they all have particular advantages that if another pilot knows what you're flying and knows the ships bonuses , they can counter most of it's advantages and give you a pretty close fight....Obviously this is just on 1 on 1 scenarios wich are increadibly rare these days as it's all about the gang or size of the fleets involved.

The funny thing is that the fleet scorpion you mentioned only costs 300 million, versus the 1.2 billion of a bhaalgorn or the 1.6 billion of a vindicator, so price is no direct indication that one ship is better that the others....It all depends on the situation and how the ships are fitted.

All the answers in this thread are wrong. The best ship is the Blaster Tengu, because nobody ever expects a Blaster Tengu.

A Tristan because it's one of the few ships I can fly...and you will probably kill me...but if I zerg rush you eventually I am going to get lucky.

I have pirate BS in my hangar. Sometimes I use them. If isk was no object, I'd be using an Andrestia or something.

As for the lol-vargur vs vindicator discussion. A multi-billion isk vargur fit to active tank is going to survive really well vs a straight brawler. That said, the Vindicator is extremely capable of blowing through very strong active tanks. It will web you at 17km w/o gang boosts, and then it will hold you at 6km and shoot you with void because you're a battleship. If this doesn't kill you, it'll turn around and waddle off while you're stuck, although he certainly won't be able to run away from your damage without jumping/warping/docking. Vindictors are quite agile even when plated. Once I was moving a vindi with 7 nanos/inertia stabs through empire, and gate-to-gate it would enter warp long before it would finish aligning.

Armageddon Navy Issue. I'm space poor and haven't tried it, but on a legit 1v1, I think it would do very well.

Megathron or Deimos! Probably Megathron because of the horrible things I've seen people do to gate campers with them. I've never flown a battleship or a T2 ship, but these two are on my "investigate further" list!
