Somewhat rare these days the Python has the size of a medium trader but flies like a large fighter. The Python became notorious in the past as a pirate ship but now days is more commonly seen as Taxi and passenger craft. Good acceleration for its size and an a quick turning circle makes the Python a viable large fighter.

Notable Features


Because the Python is rather old it requires a large crew to Pilot.
