The Viper Mk. III is the most recent development of the most successful fighter classes ever built. The original Viper Defence Craft was designed by Faulcon Manspace in 2762 in the Reorte shipyards. The basic model was beefed up with the Viper II by Faulcon deLacy. The new Viper III is a revitalised model with a new more armoured look. It is a top class fighter found in many well equipped police and naval forces.
~ In-game description


The Viper is a formidable combat craft capable of taking down some of the largest ships in Elite: Dangerous. It is capable of speeds in excess of 500 m/s in combat, and can carry a powerful selection of weapons on its 4 hardpoints. An armed viper is extremely deadly in the hands of a skilled pilot, and should never be underestimated.
