If Eve was a real place the one ship which each faction would have developed is an anti capital ship and weapon.
This class of ship {perhaps a second black ops ship for each race} would be able to sneak up to a capital ship and blow it up, so I imagine it should be skill intensive to fly and use, maybe skills like cloaking 5, black ops 5 ect. I would also make the ship extra vunerable to all none capital ships, its only defence would be the ability to fly cloaked.
It would work by flying cloaked to 0 or 500m of its target, decloaking and activating its weapon destroying itself and the target ship. The time delay between decloaking and weapon activation being reduced by a skill this is to give a defensive ship a little time to defend the target ship. Though I would also make it almost impossible for capital ships to target or defend against it without support.
This ship would obviously have a large impact on gameplay a single titan or mothership being vunerable to a single pilot, capital blobs needing frigs and cruises for defence against the ship might make 0.0 far more accessable for smaller groups .

They have two. Practically 3. The Titan, the Dread, and what's ususally used, is the Super Carrier.

Capitals are already mostly useless in 0.0 due to supers. I'd like to see more balance so supers dont make capitals completely obsolete. It's very lame that a 100 man capital fleet cant go out because there's 20 supers around that will **** the fleet.

Nerf Fighterbombers instead. Supers already have crapton of EHP to account for their cost. (or buff capitals, 5x EHP would do) :P

why not just boost the dreadnaught a bit to be a cap ship killer. Right now people only use it for POS bashing anyway.

Dreadnought were used to kill capitals, and were effective. then Mother-ships got their boost and Dreads are obsolete now.

If there is any ship that needs to be examined to fit the role of "Capital Killer" then i would look at the dread first.

For the dread to be the cap killer of choice then for it's DPS vs capitol ships it has to have a better isk wise bang for your buck than motherships. So if you are going to take down another capitol ship it should be more efficient to buy a pile of dreads than use one mothership, (assuming your dread pile costs the same as the mothership).
