So, as two of the coolest looking ships in the game, and also two of the best performing in their own respective classes, these ships need a Tech 2 version of each. I know that personally I love using both both of these ships, but want more.

All I know is that it is morally imperative upon CCP that they introduce a black, T2, torpedo-spewing battleship made by the Khanid. Since we already have the HAMnation in the battlecruiser line, they can do whatever the hell they want with the Harbinger.

As long as it has an even number of turrets.

Me and a few mates were chatting about what more possible t2 ships could be released, and we all agreed one possibility would be to make one for the tier 3 BS's: A subcapital bombardment platform of sorts. Like a mini-dreadnaught if you will.
It would be a standard t2 BS, damage and tankwise, just little bonuses compared to the tech 1 varietes, as is the case with all t2 ships. But it has a twist - it can fit a subcapital siege module, which reduces mobility to 0, reduces tracking to the point where you'll have trouble tracking BS's, but greatly increases damage and gives a slight bonus to either active tanking modules, or armor/shield resists.
This module would of course use fuel of some sort, probably strontium clathrates, and ship would need to have a fuel bay. The ship would also have a lower speed, because of the siege modules weight.

Just an idea, that we found interesting.

As for the BC, i have no idea what function another t2 BC could fill, so i choose not to comment on that subject.

Another t2 ship i'd like to see, personally, is a turret equivalent of a stealthbomber. Same principle, can fit a few large turrets and use cov-ops cloaking. I dont know if this is a violation of some lore or w/e, it would just be nice to have an option for people who likes cloaking but cant be arsed to train the whole tree of support skills for missiles, just to be able to efficiently use one type of ship.

Fleet Assault Battleships contain a T2 Abaddon and Battle Command Ships contain two T2 Harbingers. Those would be the proposals from my side.

Those were quite nice, lots of original concepts in there. I do have to say that the caldari fleet assault battleship sounds a little overpowered though. Full mobility, with 4 bomblaunchers? One of those could take on a small fleet solo with nothing to worry about :S
And i dunno about the gallente variation either. I cant say i have much of a grasp on how much damage a fighter does, but it still sounds a bit overpowered to have fighters on a BS.
Tbf i'd rather see each race having their own mini-dread, save the other original ideas for other ships.
The Battle command ships, on the other hand, were spot on! I really hope for that idea to go through. Its about time that CCP stops hugging the defensive side of EVE and starts embracing the offensive side! Hopefully they can balance weapon rigs while they're at it :/

I like the proposal somebody else made a while back for the Tech 2 version of Tier 3 battleships. That is a flagship. Some battleship like the commands, but do not work by ganglinks. Late, so not going to extrapolate, but is a start and would match their visuals. 5 fighter ships would be a cool way, 1 fighter per flagship skill.

I always thought that they should change around the ship models so that the field command and fleet command ships used the different battlecruisers. Tier one BC for the field commands, Tier 2 for the fleet commands.
