An out-of-production spacecraft produced by Faulcon DeLacy and one of its earliest designs. The Krait once led the field in small scale fighter craft - faster, more agile, and more heavily armed than most of its rivals, the design sold in the millions. Now the Krait is largely obsolete. It remains a heavily armed fighter for its size, but its sluggish speed and sub-standard manoeuvrability make it vulnerable to escort fighters and modern police ships. Kraits are still found in the poorer and more anarchic parts of the galaxy - most are a hodgepodge of old and new technology cobbled together. In combat, the Krait is often paired off against larger ships, such as the Cobra and Asp, who match the tiny ship in manoeuvrability, but who remain vulnerable to the Krait's impressive weaponry.

— Description from Elite Dangerous RPG[1]

The Krait MkI,[2] also known as the Krait Lightspeeder,[1] is a combat ship that was manufactured by Faulcon DeLacy in the 3100s. Though the small and nimble Krait proved popular, production was discontinued many years before the 3300s, and the design is now considered antiquated. Bill Turner kept a Krait among the collection of ships stored at his base on Alioth 4 A.[3] A new, reimagined model of the Krait, the Krait MkII, was released in June 3304.[2]
