Overview

When the specs for the updated Boa design were submitted, the alterations were not deemed sufficient to merit a reclassification, thus the new ship was named the Boa 2. However, some consider that viewpoint to be woefully under-appreciative. The Class Cruiser is larger, faster, and sturdier than the original, with only a slightly lower roll rate. Hence it is also substantially more expensive.

The Boa Class Cruiser offers a solid mix of cargo capacity and combat capability. In fact, it is superior to the widely admired Python Class Cruiser in all respects except 10% lower speed (and the lack of a sharky paint job).

Notable Features

Standard armament includes an Ergon BeamLaser Array system and a magazine of up to 5 missiles. When traversing dangerous territory, it is usually accompanied by up to four escort ships.

Boa Clipper variant

Further development by the Gerege Federation Space Works, resulted in the Boa Clipper, adding a third engine for increased power and speed, at the cost of 25 TC cargo capacity. Along with the Python Clipper, the Boa Clipper can be found in clippers OXP.
