Viper Mk I

DescriptionEdit

The history of the viper starfighter is a long and storied one in its nearly 55 year history it is one of the most enduring ancestries of ships of colonial history. Originally designed in Lionis as anti-pirate interceptor the Mk I possessed twin directed energy weapons these cannons had an nearly inexhaustible supply of ammunition as they where fed directly from the reactor core. Missiles could be mounted on the wings for additional assault capabilities. However due to it’s narrow form the avionics were extremely challenging with most cadets plowing into a planet rather than flying around in it. Another shortcoming was the booster system; Tylium injected directly into all three burner assemblies causing rapid boosts in acceleration however the trade off was that the reactor was eventually starved of fuel causing full system blackouts and causing the Mk I to be dead in the water.
