The StarCOM Viper is the primary space superiority fighter and attack craft deployed by the United States military. Capable of both atmospheric and long-range spacial flight, the Viper is a single-pilot craft with two-forward mounted laser-torpedo guns as standard. it is based on a fusion of Colonial Viper technoogy coupled with technology salvaged from the alien invaders(see: ID4 Independence day) and technology that the StarGate program had been working with.

the StarCOM Viper has a modular engine system which gifts it with Antigrav technology, and hyperspace window opening abilities. all parts can function independent of each other.

The Viper is capable of rapid acceleration in the form of a "turbo boost" feature, which results in greater fuel usage . Vipers are also able to abruptly stop forward acceleration by using their reverse thrusters and braking flaps

Vipers are equipped with an onboard computer which contains a warbook, an electronic reference of ships which, in conjunction with scanners, can give the pilot information on a ship and identify whether or not there are life forms onboard the said ship
