The Cobra Courier followed the Cobra Mark III along production lines at Cowell & MgRath's vast factory shipyard in Lave soon after the latter ship had proven successful. The Cobra Courier was based on a slightly different hull design that had proven too expensive for the mass market ship, but that was still useful for a ship that was aimed for the richer clientele. Only slightly bigger than its smaller sibling, the Cobra Courier also offers better shielding and extra main thrusters, at a price.

Notable features

The Cobra Courier quickly became more popular than Cowell & MgRath had estimated, despite its higher price and numerous well-off adventurers and traders can be found flying them around the Galaxy, preferring the Courier's luxurious living quarters over those of many other ships. Even though it is pricier than the Mk.III, pirates have been seen to also fly Cobra Couriers.

The Cobra Courier was also the first ship to come with an upgraded HUD, shown below. It was intended to convey a feeling of luxury for those who had purchased the vessel. But later, due to its relatively low price, this same feature was offered as an option to many other spaceships, such as Cobra Mark III.


Notable Pilots

The Cobra Courier was adopted by Rebecca Weston as a replacement for a crippled prototype SuperCobra in Status Quo.


The Cobra Courier is found in the Wolfwood's Variants OXP

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you use the Neolite Wolfies OXP, then you should not use this OXP as the Neolite one replaces this.
