He means T2

Sort of a new command ship. Don't see why not, they bring out new ideas all the time. I'd like to see Tier 2 battlecruiser and Tier 3 BS rats appear actually. That would be good.

I don't think we will to be honest. The NH already has more firepower and tank than the Drake and it's shy one launcher. If the drake went T2 the NH would be obsolete. I think it might be possible if they took the Tier 2 ships and made an entirely new class of ships out of them (Ultra Heavy Attack ships?) since I would think just about every race's tier 2 BC's would have this problem.

What role would another Tech II BC have? *ponders*

What role is there left to fill? *ponders*

In keeping with the tradition of the strong tank of the drake - your tech 2 drake hull would be a tanked out (force an active tank by making the native shield recharge rate 2x - but also give it an awesome cap) - super slow - no attack bonus - logistics ship.

Now you can choose to tank to absorb some alpha - or switch to logistics and help your fleet, without your ship popping in 2 seconds.

Ie

Drake hull:
Highs:
4 slots (bonused for shield/cap transfer - this minimizes the possibility of fitting this ship for gank)

Mids:
8 mids:
Go tank and Cap

Lows:
4 lows

More cap - room for a DCU

I think that the tier 2 BCs t2 version should be heavy logistics ships, able to activate triage mode.
