Overview

The Venom was designed by Isis International specifically to provide competition for the popular Cobra model ships. This is Isis International's first ship w/ a primary trader role, as opposed to their other ships that have been heavily slanted towards combat. The Venom is narrower than a Cobra MkIII but over twice as long, and well-thought-out interior design has made for a ship that will suit the average trader admirably. Standard cargo space is 40tons, accessible through twin belly hatches for rapid loading and unloading. Aditional interior space has been given over to power and engines, w/ the result that although larger than the Cobra MkIII the Venom is slightly faster (3.55LM as opposed to 3.5LM), has more power (355 as opposed to 256) and a Recharge Rate of 4.5. For defence purposes, the Venom is capable of carrying 5 missiles, and has four weapon mountings for all-round protection.

Also available is the "Renegade" variant, made under licence at Jesse Hooker Shipyards. Designed for runs into Anarchic and similarly unfriendly systems, the redesigned interior sacrificed 10 tons of cargo space in favour of more energy (365), a Recharge Rate of 5.5, and also manages a slightly higher top speed, 3.58LM.

The Venom is available at all systems of Tech Level 4 and above for a price of 200500Cr. The Renegade is available at systems of Tech Level 6 and above for a price of 275000Cr.
