The Colonial Viper Mk VII is a newer version of the Viper Mk II. It is a vast improvement over its predecessor, and is much easier to pilot, however, some older pilots would say that it relies too much on technology.

The Mk VII is one of the most superb fighters within the Coalition military. It is armed with three cannons for dogfighting and can carry either missles for anti-air or ground support, or it can carry heavier ordinances for larger targets. This makes the Mk VII a much larger threat to enemy craft than its older cousin the Mk II.

MK II Attributes:

Unlike the Mk II, it is much easier to pilot and the computer systems allow for the pilot to focus more on one thing than having to deal with several, like in the Mk II. It is not as common as the Mk II either; because of this, it is assigned in small groups to mostly carriers and the defense stations, however, there are a few exceptions to this. The computer systems on this version of the Viper are very sohpisticated, and some have beleived that this leaves it vulverable to electrical intrusion, however, despite this, it is still used in more dangerou missions that the Mk II could not complete.
