In EvE BS is Battleship, but I call them BBs because thats the abbriviation for battleships in the real world. I propose you change BS to BB even if BB is used for BlackBird.

Its more proper and it is not an abriviation for a rude term.

Also,

SB is sensor booster, not stealth bomber. The latter are not flown enough to merit an abbriviation.

Because in earlier patches they were called Units, not Systems. Same for BCUs, ballistic control systems.

SB can stand for smartbomb,sensorbooster or stealthbomber

DRCU = drone control unit

Its not from C&C, the entire sig is from RA. I liked the RA storyline and units alot better than C&C.

There are only two carriers for each race, yes, but one requires racial carrier I and the other racial carrier III. The level of the skill generally determines the tier - there are no tier 2 carriers atm.

The tiers are essentially the meta level of the item. Not the skill that they require.

While I agree that you do have a point, the exception does not justify the rule, see Badger vs Badger Mark II.

No, its not a necro, old timers call them by their previous acronyms before it was changed from Power Diagnotic Unit to Power Diagnostic System

And I have a few ship abbreviations that I use, dunno if they're widespread:
