The Colonial Viper Mark 1, produced by The GalTech Industries Corporation, is a one man fighter designed specifically for ship to ship combat. Its combination of small size, speed and manoeuvrability make it an ideal choice for a carrier or station based fighter but it is also able to provide a more general defence and escort role.

The lack of cargo carrying capacity or fuel scopes makes it, however, an unattractive ship choice for pirates and for this reason they are only rarely found amongst pirate groups.

Standard Equipment

Forward pulse laser

Ship Variants

The ship is available in player, escort, hunter, police, wingman and pirate roles. The basic player version is equipped with a pulse laser while all other roles are equipped with a beam laser. All other specifications are the same.

Minimum Requirements

The OXP was designed to work on Oolite 1.76 but should also be backward compatible. No additional OXPs are required to be installed in order this OXP to run.


Move the OXZ file to the AddOns directory of your Oolite installation. Start the game up while pressing the "SHIFT" key until the rotating ship appears. The ship should than be added to your game.
