Doesn't have to BE the best, but the one that people percieve as the tank of tanks so to say?
Which one makes people go "OH CRAP" when it comes in?

Just curious. I'm still working my way though BC's, and see a lot of posts about all of em, and was curious.

By T1 kinda assumed he meant tier I seeing as their arent tech II BS yet.

If thats the case id probably have to say scorp can field the best tank out of all tier I BS, ofc would have to forget ECM pretty much, but talking pure tank dont think another tier I BS set up purely for tanking could match the scorp.

Teir1 BS are ships like the scorp, teir2 would be the Raven. Tech 1 is both, tech 2 doesn't exist.

by T1 he ment tech 1, as tech2 BS don't exist, and if they are 'flagships' like the T2Bcs are 'command ships', we're going to see 8mid slots on the Caldari one, and 8 lows on the others, and 90% resists accross the board before you even fit midslot mods...ugh

Rolling EyesThey don't make us go oh crap, the make us go *sigh* hope nobody had anything planned for the next hour =D. Once had an apoc tank for a HUGE amount of time.

Actually, I see this as a plus, in that it makes the ships feel.. well.. massive.. I dont' mean just slow, but that they're hugh. And take a beating.

it's the one problem with the smaller ships, cruisers, destoyers and such. They FEEL small.. :)

I actually started with a Caldari as my main(this one) and he's a week from getting a BS.. but then, i hate the look of the Caldari ships. Sure I have a Ferox in my sig, but I just tollerate it more then others.

i was all set to dislike most of the ships I'd fly, then I saw an Apoc sitting outside a station when I was doing a courier mission with a shuttle. I did a few orbits around it and was in love. Just sitting there it looked powerful.

I had to make a new char. Thank GOD(or someone at CCP) for the Power of 2.. now I have a new char, a nice Amarr ship useing char :)

The Apoc is my new goal(or a Faction version, but not for 1 billion..)

In terms of pure tanking the Domi is actually one of the worst ships out there.

Amarr ships are famous for their abuility to tank, Caldari ships, if set up correctly, can tank for a fair ammount as well. The difference however is, the Amarr tank does not affect its dps or utility (Amarr, Utility? naa~) while Caldari ships lose a little utility in by tanking a lot.
In simple terms, wth an Amarr ship, you expect a good tank. With the Caldari, you are suprised by one.

The other coalition, the vile Gallente and the Slaves are both poor tanks relative to the Amarr and Caldari. . . that relative however can get you killed very quickly. . .

erm the dommy is the only ship Iknow of that can run 3x t2 hardeners and 2x t2 large reps as a tank.

I'd say it has the best tank (when used in conjunction with a nos setup obviously)

TBH, you can do the same on an Apoc if you fit Nos and pulses. Or even a cap injector will let you run a better tank than that for a few minutes on an apoc.

Well obviously why a dominix is good is because it can dedicate all it's slots to tank and still have a great damage output due to its drones, where all the other ships have to bother with crap like guns, tracking comps and damage mods.

A domi dedicating all its slots to tanking STILL does less damage and tanks less well then a Geddon or a Thron doing the same thing (those ships can devote the same amount of slots to NOS, Carry larger NOS, and still have 2 hi's slots left over to make up the damage difference with.

Please tell me where I can get 2 guns that together will deal out half the damage of 5 heavy drones.

Wait....so an Apoc can't use nos and run the same?

The Apoc has the most durable tank in the game.

The Raven has the best short-term tank, which can be turned into a longer term one with a cap charger.

Domis have the best tank you will normally see, but in no way do their stats lend themselves to being a better tank, merely their setups.

Although tbh, stabs are better than a tank anyway.

Apoc bar none.

Only reason Dominix is perceived to be a good tank is it can dedicate its hi slots to nos and borrow a better ship's cap.

Apoc! Hands down.

The only problem is that people usually dont fear the apoc in close range encounters.

Raven, best short term tank.

425 II's deal about 85 DPS apiece (With perfect skills and Javelin), The domi puts out about 468 dps with its drones...

The Mega puts out 314 with its drones, plus the two 425's (Which it can easily fit with 6 large nos AND large reps) and you have more damage and more tankage.

The Geddon doesn't suffer to bad either.

Of course the domi can fit one more multispec, but thats rather moot point when you consider how little that extra multi helps in the type of fight we are talking about, and how pointless it is in most other fights (fleet fights anyone?)

The Best Armour Tanker is the apoc. Anybody that says otherwise is living in a dream world.
The Best Shield Tanker is the Scorp. Anybody that says otherwise is living in a dream world.

Of course, I am only talking about tanking ability. I am not talking about DPS!
