Due to the Titanic Hull's higher structure, which therefore needs fewer armor parts, you can build a Titanic hull that is has a more powerful attack and similar structure to a similarly equipped Solar hull, and at the same time is cheaper and faster to build.

To make up for its higher research cost, difficulty getting a good black hole system to build it in, etc., I think the Solar hull deserves to be the strongest hull in the game by a good margin. Currently I don't see a compelling reason to research and build them.

I do: speed. They are 120 against the 80 base speed of Titanic Hull. Also they are specially suited to play agains Stealth armies.
When comparing Titanic vs Self-Grav. Hulls, the latter have more structure and slots per PP invested. Yet Titanics are still a good idea because they tend to live longer and because that extra internal slot helps for more interesting configurations.
Anyway, Solar Hull could use another internal slot once engines are revamped.

I agree.

But the excess speed was the biggest problem, Dbenage and I are working and testing a fix to ships having excessive speed at which point the Solar will go back to being it's full glorious self.

We do need more internal parts though, but that's a different thread.
