Another classic design that has survived the centuries. The first vessel was constructed in 2700 by Whatt and Pritney Ship Constructions. With the demise of the company and after various mergers and takeovers the ship design is now owned by Faulcon deLacy. The ship remains the slow and sturdy craft it was originally famous for and some smaller navies still use this class as a patrol cruiser (although tiny compared to the Imperial Interdictors and Federal Battle cruisers).

— In-Game Description

The Python is a heavily armed and well-protected craft, being quite maneuverable (considering its hulking size) and potentially useful in a variety of roles.

It is considered by some to be the most effective balance between firepower, manouvrebility, and protection currently available. In addition to being capable of holding its own against the larger Anaconda in a toe-to-toe frontal battle through its substantial protection and firepower, the Python is generally agile enough to comfortably deal with smaller fighter classes without having to rely on turret mounts.

The Python can also serve as a heavily armed freighter in that it can carry 284 T of cargo with a class 3 shield module fitted, or 292 T with no shield fitted, both of which is more cargo than the Type-7 Transporter can carry with shields fitted (272 Tons) as the minimum shield class a Type-7 can be fitted with is a Class 4 which will take up one of its Class 5 slots, while the Python's minimum shield class is a class 3, which will not need to be equipped in a larger than necessary slot. Additionally, besides being able to carry more cargo while retaining shields, the Python can dock at Outposts since it utilizes medium sized landing pads. However, the downside to trading with a Python is its short jump range when fully loaded.

The weapon hard points are located as follows: two large hardpoints located either side of the ships spine around the midship, and two medium points located slightly behind the cockpit. The final large hardpoint is located on the underside of the nose section. The nose mounted hardpoint has good vertical field of fire when gimballed or turreted (considering its location) which gives the Python a good field of fire where all weapon hardpoints can track and hit a target (when gimballed or turreted).

The pilot's station is offset to the left of centerline and is parallel to the auxiliary station which is offset to the right.

The Python has an available 16 piece cosmetic ship kit that can be purchased from the Frontier store which allows you to "remodel your ship in your personal style". The ship kit does not affect gameplay.
