Afterburners on frigs are already a good decision a lot of times, but on anything else... not so much.

Massive Propulsion Dynamics (rank 7) Afterburner V, Navigation V

Afterburner mass penalty reduction:

10MN = 15% per level (Medium hull only)
100MN = 25% per level (Large hull only)

Cause 50% more AB speed is exclusive to BSes... right?

Wouldn't Cruisers/BCs running around at 1k/s+ with no sig bloom be rather game breaking?

It is bad enough that the Cynabal can do it.

For the BS the same applies, you are suggesting that all but the armour plated trimark behemoths should be able to reach Machariel speeds .. will help against Drake swarms certainly but it breaks everything else.

I am not even sure why you'd need this except to make Machariels FOTM.

Its because anubis likes to suggest things to fix battleships without thinking about a. what happens afterwards or b. really considering the main problem that cause battleships to not be used (supercarriers, caps in general, the blob)

BCs would still be much slower than cruisers.

Cynabal is a cruiser, nothing wrong with fast cruisers.

Not at all, it just gives BSes a viable alternative to MWDs. Though the vast majority will still prefer MWDs no doubt.

I can't fly nor have any intention to fly a Machariel. Frankly, I don't fly any BSes at all lately... and that wouldn't likely change with this. But you go ahead and write off the idea because of your personal issues with me.

So only Minmatar use ABs. Gotcha.
