Viper mk 3 (wiki background)

Schematics of the Mk.III Viper.

The Viper Mark III was a fighter craft used by the Colonial Fleet in the latter part of the Cylon War. It was introduced as the successor of the Mark II, however it's service was short lived.

The Mark III was developed during the latter half of the Cylon War, and by the tenth year was the primary fighter used by front line vessels. The design was an evolution of the Mark II and was not significantly different visually. It was far more computerised then the Mark II and represented the most advanced the Colonials were willing to risk. Unfortunately the combination of huge losses and successful Cylon cyber attacks lead to production ceasing in favour of the simpler Mark II. Following the end of the war the Mark IV was introduced instead of returning to the Mark III.
