The Krait is very agile but small ship. Formerly the mainstay of pirates and Rock Hermits. The Krait has now been superseded by newer ships and production has ceased.

Notable Features

None that spring to mind.


Due to the fact that the Krait is no longer in production and being cannibalized for parts it is quite rare. If you are on the lookout for one you can't go wrong with "Lave" and surrounding systems. The Krait was also a little underpowered, mainly due to thruster technology improvements since the Krait was designed.


A fine small fighter but more of a collectors item than a serious threat.
