The Constrictor is either a small freighter pretending to be a fighter, or the poor man's Asp. Designed by the mysterious Organisation, this is a nippy mid-range ship with decent room for either substantial weaponry or a decent amount of cargo. On the plus side, it's fast enough to be adequate in either role. Pay your money and take your choice.
Although the Constrictor of today a good 'bread and butter' spacecraft, and nothing particularly special, this was not always the case. The Constrictor was originally a military ship with new hull alloys and shield generators as a military prototype. The prototype was thrust into the limelight when it was stolen from the manufacturer's shipyard, and eventually destroyed by a mercenary. The mystery and subsequent cover-up surrounding the theft meant that when the Constrictor finally went on public sale, media interest was close resulting in strong sales.
- 20-part story about the Constrictor by Simon Challands (active on our bulletin boards as Helvellyn from 2007-8 - and who had hoped to write an oxp for the Xeer shipyard).
She may be ugly, but has very good thrusters, and also good range if fitted with a Mil 3 Drive. Internal space is limited, so in Fighter configuration you will have to make do with few Shield Generators and basically no cargo space. A worthwhile ship in the right hands.
