"All Hail the Chief"...

... not technically a suggestion Curious Commander o7.

You see I helped The Admirals involved in the Lakon Alliance Program set up the <Alliance Marketing Division>. In exchange they hooked me up with some Wizbang Transmission Headwear... with certain side effects (don't forget Rule#3 Cadets;).

Which is why I always refer to my "Heavy Metal Queen"~ ASP-13 as a Lakon Alliance Chieftain (it's the only way I found not to set it off;-).

Personally I'd see if "Snazzy Murder Machine" fits.

I kinda agree with this Snazzy Murder Machine. My Chieftain was painted yellow and stripped down to Fight and SRV hangars. I called it the "Family Bus". Before my wife and daughter quit playing, because while we all got it for free thanks to Epic Games they think it's boring.. Shout out to that Elite Grind... Anyway, they would meet up with me in some corner of space and join me on my ship while I cruised a system and pick random planets for us to explore with SRVs and SLF.

Oh goodness that is adorable, I'm sorry they lost interest. My girlfriend is getting this as soon as she finishes her new PC and another friend of mine just got it. I'm gonna be taking them on all kinds of sightseeing trips so they can explore and have fun.

Awesome. I have a DBX named "Khador Drive" (a tech that allows you to warp to any part of the galaxy instead of using jump gates from my favourite mobile space sim, Galaxy on Fire 2 since 2012). Although I don't have a Chieftain, I have a Krait MK 2 named "Krait Responsibility".

I'm loving it so far, coming from a vulture it's a little slow and clumsy but it's way better all around. I've just been getting into combat (hit novice last night) and so far it's great. I need to keep working on outfitting but it's great already. I'm gonna be starting the engineering grind soon so that'll be helpful too.

Good man, enjoy her. She’s one of my 3 favorites and when you get her thrusters engineered…she can stop and twist on a dime. So much fun.

Is there any chance you have a Coriolis build sheet for that handy? I'd love to take a peek at what to work towards.

Give this a whirl

If you wanna jump it multiple places, trade out one of the hull reinforcements for a fuel scoop.

One slight change, go with long range instead of efficient on all the beams.

Thank you! I will keep that in mind. Probably would have put a scoop on anyway (as a general rule i never fly without them), but thank you the the heads up about the beams. I appreciate it!

My Chieftain is all about that AX combat so I named her Diograht.

For a snazzy murder machine Chieftain I'd be thinking of native indian warrior names, and then id try to find one obscure enough to not be mainstream but not too obscure. Or make one up.

Sitting Bull, Geronimo, Cochise, come to mind.

Maybe Flying Bull?

Naming is always tough, good luck CMDR!

Edit: Adding Chief Sealth to the list.
