Fighter which grew out of custom-built primarily designed for racing purposes but adopted and armed by pirates due to its high speed and maneuverability. Cargo space was added later when Raddlett and Rayburn Shipyards (based at Reorte) standardized the variences and began manufacturing the craft in large numbers.

Dry Dock

During coding of Classic Elite 'dry-dock' code was used to view some of the ships during development (referred to as *VIEW on Ian Bell's web site). A movie for the Mamba generated using *VIEW run under the BBC emulator BeebEm3 is available here.
