For those who are more pragmatic, let's compare all four racial freighters. There are only a few stats that are important, that give each freighter their little niche.
The Charon has the greatest cargo capacity, but is the slowest and least agile of the bunch. It can only haul pancakes and waffles. To reach the Red Frog capacity minimum (860,000 m3), you'll have to train Caldari Freighter II.
The Fenrir is the speediest, most agile freighter, but has the smallest cargo capacity. It looks like a rusted-out mechanical bull; this is not a cool look, but it does look freighterish. To reach the Red Frog minimum, you'll have to train Minmatar Freighter IV.
The Obelisk is the toughest of the bunch, the hardest to gank. It looks like a condominium, which may not be cool, but it does look like a freighter. It sits in the upper half for freight capacity and in the bottom half for speed and agility. To reach the Red Frog minimum, you'll need to train Gallente Freighter III.
The Providence looks the coolest, but the least freighter-like. It is bottom half for capacity, top half for speed and agility. To reach the Red Frog minimum, you'll need to train Amarr Freighter IV.
