Overview

The Outrider is the first ship to be produced by Taranis Corp. The vessel was conceived as a relatively well-specced freighter escort, capable of offering serious resistance to the modern generation of fast attack ships, yet affordable enough for the mass market. Taranis originally aimed to sell the ship for 100,000 credits; modifications to improve the hull rigidity resulted in a final price tag of 110K.

Initially, sales of the Outrider were modest at best; however, since its prominent appearance in the hit film "The Riedquat Connection", it has become much more popular with shipping firms, bounty hunters of limited means and - reinforcing its "dangerous" image - pirates.


Notable features

The Outrider is available in two models - red and green - which are functionally identical. It matches the Sidewinder for speed but not maneuverability. It is relatively big for a vessel of its type, and despite its size, offers little room for cargo; on the other hand, it is on a par with the much larger Cobra Mk III in terms of resilience. The ship is fitted with a pulse laser as standard.
