What about Locomotive?
It has the kind of movement that says "Shoot me all you want, I'll just keep coming."

Might I suggest Joust as the nickname for the Nighthawk?
My reasoning is as follows: In medieval jousting, knights had a massive lance to knock the other guy out. That could be the beams.
Since the Nighthawk has slightly-below-average endurance (In my experience), it could be compared to the final deciding factor in a joust: Once a guy gets hit by that lance (AKA: Once the other ships start firing on the Nighthawk), he is out.
What do you guys think?

Mamba should be called "Trouble Magnet" and it's wrong to say otherwise. N00b killers, missile spammers and asteroids read the ship list like: "Haha it's Mamba let's take it down!!"

Bison a Justice Bus? Laughing I'd call it a "no-can-do" or "Lazy Bones" Razz

Kingfisher.... Fragger

Swordfish... Bragger

Oh god. I'm reading the page that you linked, and some of the nicknames are absolutely hilarious!
