Diamondback Scout
Combat Explorer

Description

The Diamondback Scout is Lakon Spaceway's specialist combat explorer vessel. Unlike its bigger brother Asp, the Diamondback isn't suited as an all rounder vessel. It is popular with elite recon and pathfinder units with navies throughout human space. Its relatively low cost also makes it a popular choice with independent pilots who appreciate its combat and exploration potential.

The Diamondback Scout is a long range combat and reconnaissance ship which was released in the Powerplay update.

This ship has animated engine pods that shift position and tilt when landing gear are deployed as well as a radiator panel on the top surface that opens when landing gear are deployed.

The ship has a relatively low heat output, great speed and manoeuvrability and is a popular choice for shieldless stealth builds.
