The Cobra MkIV is Faulcon deLacy's development of the famous Cobra MkIII. It's heavier and slower than the MkIII, but packs an extra punch and better weaponry placement makes it a more effective combat vessel. It's tougher to improve survivability and allows better upgrading, but at the expense of some of its agility.

— In-Game Description

The Cobra MkIV is a ship released in Elite Dangerous' first expansion: Horizons.[1]

The Cobra Mk IV will be available in the game only to players who joined us in the first year – forever. It’s our ‘thank you’ for your faith in the game.

The Cobra MkIV has one more small hardpoint (three small, two medium total) and better hardpoint placement than the previous Cobra MkIII: Two medium hardpoints are located in the same place as on MkIII and three small hardpoints are in a tight group on top of the ship.[2] It is also much slower than the MkIII: even with fully upgraded thrusters it struggles to keep up with a Vulture.  The Cobra MkIV has the most internal bays of any ship that can land on a small size landing pad.

The Cobra MkIV is available for in-game credits to anyone who has individually purchased both Elite Dangerous and Elite Dangerous: Horizons before the 5th of Feb 2016 on PC. This also includes Lifetime Expansion pass holders.[1][3] For Xbox One commanders, the ship is available to those who purchased the Horizons season pass before the 30th of July, 2016. [4]

The pilot's station is offset to the left of the ship's centerline. The auxiliary station is offset to the right of the ship's centerline and is even with the pilot's station.
