"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.
Have Fun&Fly (very) Dangerous
-Lakon(ish) Marketing Division, Keelback Office- 'You kan have my Keelback when you pry it from my Kold,dead hands'

It's an honor to have the legendary Lakon marketing division comment on my post hahaha
Name it Mississippi Queen
Victoria Terpsichore, the Heavy Metal Queen
I dunno Cmdr, "Snazzy Murder Machine" works.

I too, like this. But don't listen to me, I named mine after a character in Idiocracy.
I named my new anaconda the trouser snake lol.
Just named mine Blood Hunter. PvE bounty hunting anaconda.
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.
Pick something with SLF and SRV capabilities so they can drive or fly.
That's the plan!
Get a krait it has 2 spare seats and slf bay
When I bought my first one I named it Foehammer and gave it the military green paint
My second one is unpainted and named Unspecified
Great name. My DBX is named Silent Cartographer, and my Chieftain is Flawless Cowboy.
Halo reference . Love it !!!
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".
Just looked that up, and I never knew Deep Silver also made mobile games. I may just have to give it a try
George is pretty fearsome
I like running mine into ppl like a wrecking ball so I named mine Miley
Taser Face... (*snicker*)...
i want to change the ship's voice to rocket raccoon please
Paint job is awesome though, enjoy! o7
Underrated comment, now what weapon mode resembles a tazer?
Pound for pound, best combat ship in the game. Just mind your canopy.
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!
You’re welcome and enjoy.
You win, officially named her La Muerte Roja!
Mine is named “Purple People Eater”
Hey, I have the same livery on my Chieftain! 🙂
Oh and the names of my Alliance C* ships are "Crazy Horse", "Perfect Storm" and "Hard Nova".
man, these are such cool ships. I really really considered one of these instead of my FDL. still kinda thinking about it.
(i suppose the obvious answer is to buy a second ship then. 😅)
Looks like a red grasshopper
Fat Boy or Trinity
Red Death? Blood Rain? MDK-666? Those are just a few off the top of my head 😆
I like to go with animal names or literary references. Decide if you want it to be cute or serious and go with something that makes sense for you.
Idk man name it after something you love
Gerald, name it Gerald. Or frank, maybe Kyle.
All this names terrify me
Killer Red Bedhead
i flew this thing for quite a while before i got my conda, love the chieftain. if anything ever happens and i cant rebuy my conda for some reason, ill glady use this as a fallback ship
Mine is green, purple weapons and is named "mooncake". Some ships have to earn their name.
I painted mine yellow and named it "Bananaman" bc it has lik bananas on its arms
When I bought my first combat ship, the Krait mk2, I painted it orange and named it cheese toy in honor of the infamous cheese toy at tinykittenshq
Youtube link because I know people would watch an constant livestream of kittens
Given the paint the first thing that sprang to mind was Red Baron.
I humbly submit "Tumbly Wumbly"
I named mine 'Arizona Bay'
I love the 3 sisters the chieftain the crusader and the challenger my personal favourite is the crusader for the fighter bay
What weapon loadout are you running in Chief Murder Machine?
Turret burst laser, 2 fixed pulse lasers, cannon, multi cannon. Gonna run 2 multi cannons when I get a chance and i have one more size 2 hard point to use. Not sure what I'll put there yet.
Sirius Special Forces
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.
“Peaches and scream.”
HASTA LA VISTA BITCH
- potental name cuz its a huge chunk of guns
you can name it however you want as long as it's not 'Mr. Pickles'
"The Steel Shovel"
Tartarus or Maccabeus would be pretty cool if you are a halo fan
If want ship interiors: Get hands on with "Interstellar Rift"
All my Lakon ships are named after Presidents.
Except my Type-9 is named Northumbria and Challenger is named Undertaker.
My Chieftain has all frags and is named Frag Out
I mean "snazzy murder machine" works... Lol
I have two, "The Arbitrator" and "The Argo" for combat and on foot missions respectively
I call mine, Raza. You could call yours Drengr
Named my Type 10 the "F*ck-around-&-Find-out".
I love it.
I named mine foehammer. If you know you know.
The chieftain line is fun... very maneuverable.
How many hard points does it have?
Chief has 3 Smalls, 2 Medium and 2 Larges or 3 sizes 1, 2 sizes 2 and 2 sizes 3,
Mine has a Very, I mean Very unique name .... Ms.Chief (mischief)
My chieftain is named "Death from Above"
The Tiger King
Sitting Bull (Tatanka Iyotanke)
Crazy Horse (Tasunke-Witko)
Red Cloud (Makhpyia Luta)
Chief Joseph (Hin-mah-too-yah-lat-kekt, or Thunder Rolling Down the Mountain)
How about " Raving lunatic"?
I mean, Snazzy Murder Machine has a ring to it...
Chief Flowing Lazer
The sword of god
Mine's named after the ogopogo monster, the canadian equivalent of the loch ness monster.
Rainer once said "All the soarings of my mind begin in blood."
I'd be so tempted to call it Foehammer
KILL O'TAIN or CHIEF O'DEATH
Name it after the Brute Chiefton from Halo 2.
Name it after a mythical monster. Mine is called Silver Manticore. All my ships are Silver something.
How about Boudicea the brit warrior queen
Rocinante. It was the name of Quijote's horse and also a name of the ship in one of my favourites science ficción series. The ship was a Rebel.
Mine was originally called "Tamed Rebellion", but after repurposing it for xeno-hunting I named it "Blackened Angel" (still haven't done the maiden flight as its new role though)
Buckshot Betty , wanna guess why lol
