Viper Pirate Rebellion Federation Anaconda

The Fed Anaconda is a Federation ship in Escape Velocity Nova.

"The main problem with the Viper as a fighter craft is a complete lack of any form of explosive projectile. A new variant that has the 'long distance kill' capacity, based on the Viper chassis, has been the Federation's choice of Space Superiority Fighter ever since. Although this ship, named the Anaconda, suffers from a slightly slower acceleration and top speed than the Viper, its ability to destroy enemy fighters before that fighter can get within gun range more than compensates." ― Buying an Anaconda

"If you're looking for long-range power projection, you can't really look much further than the Anaconda. A sweet little piece of work, you feel. This one has been through the wars, literally, but her pilot has a hardened look about him that inspires you with confidence." ― Hiring an Anaconda

Gameplay Analysis

"A bigger badder Viper, the Anaconda is a great Federation support ship. It is armed heavily enough that two or three will eliminate any slightly larger ships (such as a sloppy Starbridge pilot), but get gradually ineffective when it comes to heavier ships, especially Auroran ones with rail guns." ― EVula Survival Guide

Unlike the Viper, the Anaconda does not appear in anything but military versions, as it is not intended for sale to the general public. Pilots who wish to obtain one to use as a primary vessel must either enter the Federation storyline or disable and capture one. The shipborne fighter version is a useful tool to dispatch small fighters, particularly the Auroran Firebird, or make "bombing" runs with their IR Missiles. The Anaconda is comparable in strength to the Auroran Phoenix.

One way to outfit an Anaconda is to sell the Light Blasters and add Hellhound Missiles, Wraithii, and keep the IR Missiles.
