"ESTABLISHED IN JULY 2000, MAKES IT THE OLDEST FAN CLUB ORGANIZATION FOR BATTLESTAR GALACTICA"

THE WEBSITE IS GOING THROUGH CHANGES AS IT IS MIGRATING AND BEING RECONSTRUCTED FOR ITS UPCOMING SILVER ANNIVERSARY NEXT YEAR


"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens.

NOTE:  **THE WEBSITE WILL GO THROUGH SOME CHANGES FOR THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CLUB ORGANIZATION - JULY 1, 2025**

Following a request for more information about the Viper mkVII, the CAG, Lt. Mik Mo Morelake has found the following. 

Colonial Viper mkVII.

The Viper mkVII is the most modern starfighter used by the CDF for space and air superiority.  It is a single seat fighter,  slightly larger than the mkII, but still small enough to fit a Battlestar's launch tubes. In addition to it's fighting role it can also be used for recon, anti-ship and air to ground attacks. 

Dimensions:

Length 32.3ft, 9.86m

Height 9.68ft, 2.95m

Wingspan 18.4ft, 5.6m

Power:

Fusion reactor,  life span 20 years, powers  all on board systems. 

3 Voram thrust engines, fuelled by Tylium, with reverse thrust and nozzle vectoring for additional manoeuvring agility. 

Dradis:

Range of detection up to 400 miles in atmosphere,  40,000 miles in space. It is a complete battle management system able to track up to 72 targets continuously,  and direct attacks against 24 targets simultaneously. 

It also has a terrain following feature for low level flying. 

An ESM function detects Dradis emissions from other sources and provides an attack warning. Decoy and flair countermeasures are carried on board. 

A low level laser navigation system is also fitted to the Viper mkVII for emission free attack without using Dradis.

Armaments:

3 MEC-A12 30mm Thraxon electromagnetic mass accelerator cannons, with 1000 rounds each,  one mounted in each wing and one in the tail fin. Rate of fire is 20 rounds per second,  in 10 round bursts. Range up to 1200m in atmosphere or 9600m in space. 

Ventral weapons bay can carry up to 8 Lighting Javelin medium range AAMs, or 1 anti-ship nuclear cruise missile. 

One hard point under each wing can mount 1 long range AAM, 2 Javelins,  or 4 short range "dogfight"AAMs. Other stores for air to air, or air to ground attacks can also be carried. 

Performance:

In atmosphere maximum acceleration is 9G, normally restricted by the on board computer to 7G for pilot protection. The Viper mkVII can achieve escape velocity, mach 32.6, in three minutes. 

In space maximum acceleration is 9G. Normal cruise velocity is 1G to conserve fuel. Maximum endurance is 64 hours at 1G, 60 minutes at 7G continuous,  or 15 minutes at 9G.

Further information about the Viper mk7.

In series 3 of the reimagined BSG, during the battle for New Caprica, the Vipers can be seen shooting guided air to ground weapons at Cylon surface targets, with good accuracy. 

In the series 4 episode, the Hub, Vipers launch nuclear missiles from their underwing pylons to destroy the Cylon resurrection hub, with the assistance of the Cylon rebels.

Having waxed 28 of my 47 kills in A mk.VII,I certainly give it my stamp of approval!

Perseus is the advanced training squadron,  and all pilots need to know their fighter's capabilities.

With many apologies to the CAG, Sir. That should be Lt. Mik Mo Morlock. Sorry sir, can't spell!
