Developed as a Heavy Interceptor for Her Imperial Majesty's Space Navy the Asp-X is substantially larger than the standard Asp Mk II from which it is derived. It has a higher maximum speed than the Mk II, carries 2 missiles, and has a sixth energy bank making it a strong and powerful ship. It is purely a fighting ship, having no cargo capacity.
The design was also licenced for civilian use, and although a rare sight these ships will be encountered occasionally. They are favoured by Hunters and Assassins and inevitably also by Pirates and Brigands.

The Asp-X features in the Classic X-ships OXZ (originally from Aegidian's X-Ships)
