As soon as Comara released the Viper frame on the general market, a few shiploads of frames were bought up by notorious pirate shipwright Olaf Greyshoulders. He and his crew have totally refitted the shell, and the familiar shape of its advanced armor plating hides a wealth of minor and major improvements to the basic idea. But, as with all Greyshoulders upgrades, there is a hefty price to pay for the improved model. It's up to you to decide whether it's worth it.


If you have any gameplay tips, hints, or background information relevant to this topic, please post them here.

This ship is available as a primary craft and as a shipborne fighter. Note, however, that possession of a Pirate Viper Bay may incur the displeasure of Federation patrol craft.

This fighter comes in three versions: the Heavy Fighter (shown here), the Beam Variant which packs a Thunderhead Lance and Raven Rockets, and the Missle Variant which unloads a salvo of IR Missiles before returning to its mothership. The Heavy Fighter is the only one to appear without a mothership (the more advanced Pirate Carriers). Unless you use a plug-in that adds outfits for the other versions, the only bay you can buy is the Heavy Fighter.
