The *new* aware CCP is going to be tiptoeing around players feelings as much as possible. That means they're going to introduce the Tornado as a ship anyone can fly no limitations beyond Minmatar BS, Minmatar BS/X Faction BS, or T2 Minmatar BS skills.

The only problem is that they might introduce it as something overpowered. In fact I'm worried more about it being OP than unavailable.

Given the stats in the last pics are true, are we looking at a gallente/amarr hull (400m3 dronebay, 125mbs)?

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 wonder how many screams and death threats those bonuses would cause if it came true. It seems worth trying. Please do so, CCP. Twisted

New ship that would be usable by people ? Surely you are joking good sir ...


I wish they would make old ships not be garbage and then give more new ships ... they can be genericly good.
Dear god I just want more new models and looks and stuff <3

Diversity you know ? There are tons of cars with similar specs yet different looks in the world, do the same for eve ships !

I agree. There are some ships that simply look too awful. I have tried to fly Caldari ships before, but ALL cruisers are butt ugly... and those poor new players to the game, that get introduced to the Bantam at the get go...ShockedBig smile

Nothing wrong with swapping out a ship here and there with some better designs. Redesigning some more ships (the new Maller looks great) would be nice too.

Hope this comes with a new Caldari BS as well, though I think its time for a new kind of ewar for these new ships. Maybe a chance-based decloaker? =)

I'm back!

Whatever became of this?

(Original forum-thread, here.) A CovOps-capable sorta-HAC with Vagabond like speed would be very, very cool, although probably a balancing nightmare.

though I'm not as pessimistic as the above posters who are already whining about what stats it will have, and if CCP will mess it up, shouldn't a ship with a name like "Tornado" at least look a little..."vortexy"?

personally I'd rather have custom paint jobs available for ships first.... like Tiger Stripe, or Digital camo, or Chrome, or hell bright yellow for all I care. with your corp/alliance emblems on them.. or just fix hybrids >.>

"New ships - Recently we featured a shot of the Tornado, the Deviant Art contest winner, on the EVE Facebook page. We were not happy with just giving out one ship so we will be showcasing all four new ships."

Extremely unlikely as CCP would hate to make life hard for themselves. By following the current trend, we will have Caldari ships similar in function to the Mimir/Freki, Adrestia/Utu and the Vangel malice (Minnie, Gallente, Amarr in order).

Details were posted on Eve's facebook page.


Its NOT a battleship, they scaled it back to a Teir 3 battlecruiser. BUT, it fits battleship guns. The draw back is, less tank.

And the new T3 battle cruisers for the other 3 races will be revealed in the coming weeks!

Oh pretty please let one of them be the Amarr Mentor! Such a cool looking design!
