The Viper Mark II or simply the Viper Mk II is one of the first two "Starter Ships" that a Colonial Player may pick to start out with, next to the Command-type Raptor. Players who picked the Raptor can later buy the Viper Mk II for 100,000 Tylium, which is an amount that can very quickly be acquired. Upgrading the ship costs only 30,000 Cubits, which can be easily acquired if the player plays very often. Upon advancement, players can get a cleaner looking vessel, and even throw on some paint if they'd like, as well as experience a tremendous improvement of performance in speed and firepower. However, with the recent tutorial update, you are forced to pick the Viper Mark II as your starter ship.
Although designed over 40 years ago, the Viper Mark II remains an outstanding interceptor and space superiority fighter that's proved more than capable of matching the Cylon raider in speed, agility and firepower.
As an Interceptor, the Viper MK II can be equipped with more engine systems than other strike craft, increasing its already impressive performance.
