The Viper Mark I was the first in what would become a long series of successful Space Superiority fighters, the fighter was designed and manufactured by G.L.L. Defense Industries Inc. on Caprica. When introduced to the Caprican Ministry of Defence they were the fastest and most manoeuvrable aerospace fighters ever developed by humans. However its service was short lived due to the Cylon War. The Admiralty asked for a fighter that could out perform a Cylon raider and the result was that the Mark II began completely replacing the Mark I at the end of the 2nd year of the war. The only operational ones left are the ones aboard the Battlestar Ares.
