Tornado Minmatar battlecruiser from the game EVE Online
About this creation
The Tornado is the Minmatar attack battlecruiser. Capable of fielding a full rack of battleship projectile turrets, the Tornado combines massive DPS with range and kiting ability. Tornadoes are very strong en masse fitted with artillery, killing targets in a single high alpha damage shot. The design for the Tornado comes from the Deviantart EVE Online design contest, and was designed by a player and EVE Online fan. The design won the competition, and now we can enjoy its vertical beauty in the game itself. As one of the designs I voted for, the Tornado has been one of my favorite ships aesthetically since it was released.

From the game EVE Online:
In YC 113 Republic Security Services learned the Amarr Empire was building a new battlecruiser capable of supporting battleship-class weapons. Determined to not lose their technological edge to their adversaries, Republic Fleet commissioned Boundless Creation to construct a gunboat to match.

What they designed was the Tornado. Developed in record time and total secrecy, the Tornado is a testament to Minmatar engineering. Modeled loosely off of flying-wing designs of ancient planetary bombers, the Tornado supports multiple large projectile turrets, dealing massive damage while maintaining a small signature radius.


I found out that one of my coworkers played EVE Online a few years ago, so I asked him what his favorite ship is. He said the Tornado, so I took it upon myself to create this model. It took maybe 3-4 hours to complete. The hardest part was getting the bottom right, as well as building the tilt to the top "wing". I wasn't so sure about the design at first, but after overwhelming positive feedback I decided to post it here.
