Built by the now insolvent CLAN Ltd. as a cheap attack craft aginst larger targets, the amphisbaena's technology is terribly outdated, but the ship is still in use by pirates and other derelict subjects, who can't afford something better. An enthusiast can make use of its impressive missile capacity for a vessel of it's size, by putting a little money and effort into this - but there are probably still better alternatives.
