Cobra Mk IV

Role: Multipurpose

The Cobra Mk IV is Faulcon deLacy's development of the famous Cobra Mk III. It's a heavier and bulkier ship than the Mk III, but packs an extra punch and better weaponry placement makes it a more effective combat vessel. It's tougher to improve survivability and allows better upgrading, but at the expense of some of its agility.
