The main problem with the Viper as a fighter craft is a complete lack of any form of explosive projectile. A new variant that has the 'long distance kill' capacity, based on the Viper chassis, has been the Federation's choice of Space Superiority Fighter ever since. Although this ship, named the Anaconda, suffers from a slightly slower acceleration and top speed than the Viper, its ability to destroy enemy fighters before that fighter can get within gun range more than compensates.

Unlike the Viper, the Anaconda does not appear in anything but military versions, as it is not intended for sale to the general public. Pilots who wish to obtain one to use as a primary vessel must either enter the Federation storyline or disable and capture one. The shipborne fighter version is a useful tool to dispatch small fighters, particularly the Auroran Firebird, or make "bombing" runs with their IR Missiles. The Anaconda is comparable in strength to the Auroran Phoenix.
