The Viper is a small fighter, and is arguably the weakest combat ship in the game. It mounts light protection, relying more on speed and agility. Regardless, Vipers are considered good frameworks for development, as several military variants exist.
Power Sled racing originally developed this as a racing sled for the Galactic Racing Network. However, it didn’t take space farers long to begin tweaking it as a means of travel. It is now used as the mainstream short-range fighter for the Federation, Rebels and Pirates.
