If the stats are correct, the BMM will become a HUGE ship:
Size doesn't matter™

But since I'm not really into this alien design, I've decided to stay with the Hull C and the Caterpillar (hopefully that I can hold onto this decision).
Stand firm Sam... stick with your decisions.. Only change your decision under the most dire of circumstance, such as if the day happens to end in the letter "Y", or maybe even if "you just feel like it"!

I can see visuals being a problem in the current iteration that we all play in, but seeing as this game is nowhere near final, and i expect that the radar and other sensors will become increasingly more important, This ship could become a very good defensive ship, which is what it is supposed to be.

Also, I'm sure when they start whiteboxing and greyboxing if there are any major view issues they will adjust for it then.

Filthy alien trash. I need me a ship built with human hands. Who needs sleek lines, large shields, co-pilot gunners, and those sexy...interior....storage solutions.....oh....oh god. I....i think I want one.

Yes I think it will be a monster. I'm hoping so anyway as the current internal design seems way too limited for the ship role. It is touted as a home as much as a cargo transport yet in the CIG concept art it has bunk beds as opposed to individual cabin space, and that really gives it the feel of a utilitarian transport. If they do it justice then we're talking at least a 30% size boost.

Still there's hope that they may be converted from BMM to BPB (Butuz Party Boat). Either way, I think it's going to be a thing of beauty.

Hmmmmm....
To Banu or not to Banu;
That is the question.

I like the ship, but I see the cockpit view being an issue. However, that is something they'll probably adjust once they start building the thing.

Anyone else see hints of Kiltathi fighters in this thing?
I agree with u. I did go ahead and got one. You have massive blind spots with the current lay out. I don't really understand why the went with such an odd design.

I am not afraid to say that I picked up the BMM/Def combo because LTI, however over rated it may be, and a couple Defenders for some dumb reason.
The value of LTI on the BMM should not be underestimated. Normal insurance may not cover you in higher risk areas (according to an old post by Chris Roberts, that may not be canon), but LTI will cover you anywhere. Having cast-iron insurance on the BMM will allow you to go into areas that you might otherwise be forced through prudence to stay clear of. For a trading ship that's UEC in the bank.
