Viper I

   

USO MLF Viper MK I

The distinctive arrowhead shape of the Viper patrol craft is a frequent sight around all USO space stations, even in the most dangerous systems with the most poorly funded police forces. A small, nimble craft optimized for routine police patrols, it is a shape that can strike fear into the hearts of smugglers and pirates. The ship is typically single-crew, but for special purposes can carry up to 10 (mostly for boarding and sting raids against smugglers).

Notable features The Viper is an old design, having first rolled out from colonized planets after pirating became common in the USO systems. However, it is one of those designs that was just right, hence its longevity. Although the original design is relatively slow and the shielding/hull strength a little on the weak side to take on ships such as capital ships, it still performs admirably as a local patrol craft for station defence and anti-smuggling inspections. A standard fitting is a row of white strobe lights, which the crew will illuminate when actively pursuing another craft, or signalling it to stop.

All too many commanders try and run when they see the flashing lights – but this usually elicits death by laser from the Viper. A few older Vipers have appeared on the civilian markets, sold as the Renegade Viper. Sales were terminated when it became clear that the ship was popular as an inexpensive pirate fighter since a trader would normally not pay much attention to a Viper, believing it to be a police vessel. If the craft was a Renegade piloted by a pirate, this usually was the last action of the said trader.

Rumors are telling that also a newer reworked version of this Ship will patrol soon. To get your Hands on one of these Ships you need to serve the United Stars Military or you will just see the flashing of it’s superior firepower.
