The thanny is the ugliest carrier in the game

This failed abortion of a ship could use a facelift.

I rather dislike the aesthetics of Gallente ships as a rule, but I honestly prefer the Thanny over the Niddy.

How can you think the Thanatos is uglier than the Aeon?


(Quelza) #5

I suspect OP is differentiating between carriers and supercarriers. So they’re only comparing the Thanatos to the Chimera, the Archon and the Nidhoggur.

At least I hope so.

The Aeon is sexy to me, (Though I wouldn’t mind a new model thats more symmetrical) but I agree the thanny is ugly.

Edit: Spelling correction, symmetrical, not asymmetrical. (I’ve been at work for 16 hours.)


(S'totan) #7

The aeon is the definition of an asymetrical ship


(LouHodo) #8

The Algos is the best looking Gallente ship… which is sad. You would think a culture built on freedom would have better artists and designers. I guess they like the Van Gogh art style.

Nah, here’s the carrier cosmetics heiarchy:
Nid,Thanny,Archon,Whatever-The-Caldari-Carrier-Is


(Abyss Azizora) #10

Nah, more like.

Archon, Nid, Thanny, the flying I-beam/oversized rokh thing the caldari fly.


(Sitting Bull Lakota) #11

Warping around, I think I like the archon the least. That ship looks like an I-beam in flight.

The Chimera has risen to be my favorite. I love that submarine/train.
The Thanatos would be second, though I’d like to see it’s eventual reskin give it a more Gallentean profile. The Nyx, Erebus, and Moros have a bulbous quality to them that the Thanny just lacks.


(Chaos Ellec0n) #12

I feel like you only chose the Archon because you’re Amarrian.


(Abyss Azizora) #13

Ehhhh, ok maybe I’m a “tad” biased towards Amarrian design. But in fairness I find plenty of other ships sexy, the nyx is undeniably dead sexy, and I have a soft spot for sansha ships. But overall, Amarrian designs “usually” are the best to me. (Few exceptions such as the tumor omen.)


(Rhino Sheka Zinbar) #14

I fly a higher end Thanatos and am pleased with performance. I have every skin except the quafe skin, which is long lost.
Would be nice to get a redesign of the studded space spatula. It’s tired and looks rather improvised, kind of random.


(Scipio Artelius) #15

I love mine. Please don’t change (though appreciate he OP has a different view… …because he’s a heathen).


(Piugattuk) #16

Actually, anything Minmatar, especially the Vigil, God himself has forsaken his creation and cursed it.


(Terranid Meester) #17

Found the Caldari scum.


(Ralph King-Griffin) #18

Nah mate, the archon absolutely needs it more


(DireTurnack) #19

the thanatos does need a re-design


(Beast of Revelations) #20

I find Gallente ships to be the ugliest in general, often looking like weird sex toys or space potatoes or whatever else. However, I don’t mind the Thanatos.
