I was looking through ISIS (like I often do) and came up with a list of my favouriting looking ships. I would be interested to know what your favourite (in appearance) is per class!

Frigate: Sentinel
Destroyer: Confessor
Cruisers: Moa or the Phantasm
Battlecruiser: Damnation or the Hurricaine
Battleship: Typhoon

Edit: Overall the Gallente line of ships isnt that bad looking, but they remind me of plastic toys

Frigates - Can't choose just one. Tie between Crucifier, Anathema, and Maulus. I wish there were combat ships I liked as much as these three.

Destroyer - Thrasher

Cruiser - Maller/Sacrilege and Stabber. I would say that cruisers in Eve are the ship class most badly in need of graphic updates.

Battlecruiser - hands down the Damnation (but the Oracle is pretty cool and aside from Caldari, overall I would say Battlecruisers are pretty awesome looking across the board.

Battleship - Navy Apocalypse/Paladin

And I'll add capitals too just for the heck of it.

Carrier - Chimera
Super Carrier - Wyvern

Strange that Caldari have my favorite Carriers since I am not crazy about Caldari ships overall but they are the only ones to not boast the silly "flat ship" design. I imagine the person that thought that carriers in space should look like real live carriers on water is the same person that thinks camouflage in space is a good idea (I am not a fan of flat ships).

Dread - I like them all but Revelation is one of my favorite ship designs.

Titan - Avatar - one of the most iconic Eve ships.

I like the looks of Sansha ships but none are bonused in a way I can use.....

That being said the Gila looks cool in it's latest iteration! Nighthawk USED to look cool!

Slicer hulls, all of them. Tied with the inkursus.

Honorable mention for the crusifyer.


Legion (in most configurations)


Paladin (typhoons is a close second)

mini carriers look evil so I love them.

Everything else is meh bar the mordus legion and sisters ships.

To be fair, I do have actual answers.

Frigate: Slicer and Dramiel take the top. Merlin and all variants get a mention. Ares isn't bad looking either. Old Helios would still win for me but I'm beginning to sound like a broken record on that one. Rifter and variants are still pretty nice as well. Prospect deserves at least something of a nod as well. It's a strong group.

Destroyer: I'm pleasantly surprised by the Confessor. Catalyst gets points for being so distinctive.

Cruiser: tough call. Ashimmu and Orthrus are pretty solid. Not as strong a lineup here in general. Some Legion variants deserve a mention I guess.

BC: Oracle. Damnation gets a mention. Sleipnir used to take the cake, but see Old Helios above.

BS: Megathron and variants, especially Vindicator. This may be the most iconic hull in Eve. Nightmare gets a mention.

Industrial: Bestower/Impel. I'm also oddly enamored with the Viator.

Freighter: Providence/Ark. Really wish this hull had been a combat ship.

Carrier: Eh. None of them really grab me. Thanatos if needed.

Super: Nyx.

Titan: Avatar has to win this one.

Barge: yeah, no. I used to stare at a Covetor. I liked it at the time. That was over seven years ago. Not so much anymore.

Didn't think to mention industrials and freighters. I agree with Bestower/Impel and Providence/Arc. Amazing ships in Amarr's near perfect lineup.

Frigate: either merlin or incusus hulls, can't decide /o\
Destroyer: coercer!
Cruisers: gotta go with the thorax
Battlecruiser: never really had a huge favorite here, but I guess Hurricane. maybe ferox. Myrm is pretty cool, but something sketchy about it.
Battleship: Paladin!

Frigate - Rifter

Destroyer - Two-way tie: Catalyst/Svipul

Cruiser - Three-way tie: Arbitrator/Maller/Stabber

Battlecruiser - Four-way tie: Hurricane/Myrmidon/Oracle/Tornado

Battleship - Megathron

Carrier - Nidhoggur

Super Carrier - Hel

Dread - Naglfar

Titan - Ragnarok

Note: Any T1 ship listed above that has Pirate/Navy/T2 variants, I also like those variants. I was just too lazy to list them.

When I finally do make an impact on this universe, it will reverberate across the entirety of it, and no one will be able to truthfully claim they don't know me. - -

Until then, I'll just sit quietly over here, minding my own business...

Some of the new Gallente hull are quite appealing to the eyes, but for me nothing will be as much eyecandy than the Rattlesnake, for both the hull and the paintjob.

Frigate : Garmur
Destroyer : Trasher
Cruiser : Rook
Battlecruiser Ferox/Hurricane
Battleship : Apocalypse
Dreadnought : Phoenix

Frig- It would probably be the Merlin, closely followed by the Condor, Generally any Caldari Frig besides the Bantam I like,

Dessie, Corm or the Thrasher,

Cruiser Orthrus or the Moa

Battle-cruiser, Myrm or the Ferox

Battleship: Megathron or the Scorpion

dreadnought would the Rev

Carrier Wyvern or the Thanny
