The Viper class starfighter is a ship developed by Earth military scientists. Successful designs from several other ships were combined into this, making it one of the most advanced ships ever made. It has 2 high power laser cannons in the front, with a high cycling rate. It also has 1 engine in the rear of the ship, and 5 microthrusters in each wing for steering. Its shielding system can deflect laser blasts powerful enough to destroy most star cruisers.
