Don't let it's small size fool you. Within its small frame is contained some of the most powerful energy weapons ever concieved. The Viper is the space superiority fighter designed with one sole purpose, to destroy enemy Ship Commanders.

For all its luxuries of high damage output, it has two large weakness, its short range and dangerously low HP.
