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).
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.
