The original Cobra, the Mk. 1 was designed by the small shipyard Paynou Prossett and Salem and was the first one man trading ship. It was a huge success, and attracted the attention of Faulcon deLacy, who had just begun to take over other manufacturers to increase their market share. PPS became part of Faulcon deLacy Group in 2888.

While obviously not as good as its successor the Mk 3 (but a hell of a lot better than the failed Mk. 2!), the Mk. 1 is still a good buy. It offers good speed for a medium-sized ship, and has reasonable capacity. A military drive would be an excellent buy, in order to give you more space to make enough money to buy a Mk. 3.

Rating: ***
