Overview

2 remakes of the legendary Adder Mk II:

  • The Adder Mark II-R (Racer) is a fast ship with enhanced injectors, used by couriers and professional racers alike. Some commanders keep them as a secondary craft :and use them for interplanetary trips.
  • The Adder Mark II-F is a light fighter, swift enough to outrun most other ships and therefore favored by hunters and assassins.


History

Marett Space Corporation was a small ship production company but blessed with a creative designer-team under the lead of maestro Rufernus. Ruferenus, a former project-manager, left Benulobiweed Inc. in bad blood, rumors have it that he took some blueprints on his way out. His Adder Mk II certainly had uncommon technology included, and the clients stood in line to get one of these ships.

Business boomed until the ship factory on Edle (G1) became collateral damage in one of the endless civil wars. Unfortunately, this damage included Ruferenus, parts of his team and the main database. There were whispers that the destruction of the shipyard and the death of Ruferenus were somehow arranged by Benulobiweed Inc. Security Department, but neither GalCop nor local authorities ever started even an investigation.

However, the production of the Adder Mk II ended for good and while sometimes you still could find a used Adder Mk II for sale, they became pretty rare and expensive.

The remaining members of the designer-team were tasked with the creation of a remake. Some months later 2 prototypes were introduced to the management, the Adder Mark II-R as a racer and the Adder Mark II-F as a fast, light fighter. With many key-data missing, it proved to be impossible to merge both versions into one.

Remarks

necessary.
  • Both ships are equipped with boosted injectors which offer higher speed, using more fuel and increase the maintenance costs.
  • The Adder Mark II-R focuses on speed, therefore the only standard weapon fit in the fore mount is a pulse laser.
