Frontier Developments the sleek (and faintly sexy) new Mamba and Krait Phantom - two new ships arriving as part of Elite: Dangerous' upcoming Beyond: Chapter Four update.
The Mamba is designed by Zorgon Peterson, the in-game manufacturer responsible for the fan-favourite Fer-de-Lance. It's a combat-focussed vessel, apparently based on an unreleased racing prototype (which might explain those striking undulating lines), and combines high speed with significant firepower. "This," says Frontier, "means the ship can hit hard and fast, vanishing before the target has a chance to react.
If you're curious about specifications, Frontier notes that the Mamba features one Huge, two Large, and two Small Hardpoints, five Internal Optional Slots, and has a laden FSD jump range of 6.37LY. Speed-wise, it can reach 316m/s and its boost tops out at 387m/s. You better have a decently sized wallet though: all this will set you back approximately 55 million credits.
