Ship Review - Cobra Mk I

[Cobra Mk I pic]

Heaven alone knows why you see so many of these. It is not a good ship. I made the mistake of buying one thinking the extra cargo would be handy, but before long I had had enough and returned to a Moray. The major problems are its poor handling and limited range. It's supposed to obsolete, anyway. One to avoid!

Recommended equipment:
I've no idea. I didn't keep it for long enough to form an opinion, but the standard Front Military Laser and ECM system should probably do. As it's no good for long range work a maximum cargo space approach should probably be taken.
