Crane redesign concept (with images)

I love flying blockade runners. Crane is my fav ship but I always felt its physical design didn't reflect its abilities.

So this is my redesign of the Crane's structure.

Overall, it's a little shorter (to reflect its maneuverability) and 4 LARGE afterburners (to reflect its speed).

I call it the "Bison" because its profile reminds me of one.

Looks good.

Personally, I'd like to see a complete redesign of the crane. All the Caldari cargo ships actually. I like the design of the Charon and Rhea. Wide, flat looking design. I'd like to see a whole new redesign of the Caldari cargo ships in respect to their freighter design.

That looks pretty cool! I like it, simple and keeps the general shape of the ship. +1!

Yep, it really looks like a bison! Big smile
