Summary
The StarViper-class attack platform was a heavy starfighter that was based on Prince Xizor's Virago, and was used extensively in the criminal underworld during the era of the Galactic Empire. The StarViper was equipped with dual laser cannons of medium destructive power, and unlike other starfighters, it was short in length but tall, lacking a fuselage. It had decent armor and was fairly quick, but was expensive, which meant that it was not deployed in large squadrons. The StarViper was also able to release buzz droids that would harm nearby craft.
The StarViper Mk. II, also known as the StarViper M-2, was a modification of the earlier StarViper-class attack platform. The design had less firepower than its predecessor, trading its heavy laser cannons for lighter lasers and heavier shielding while also removing the original model's proton torpedo launchers and replacing them with ion cannons. However, the increased versatility offered by the ion cannons made the craft popular with pirate groups and other criminal forces, including the Zann Consortium.
