To date, Vic Viper has fended off the attack of over ten different armadas single-handedly, thanks to its advanced weapon systems and incredible piloting. While it does indeed lack any type of standard shielding and can be destroyed by contact with a single projectile or object, it still manages to complete any mission it undertakes because it is that goddamned awesome.
Vic Viper is arguably the only thing standing in between the universe and complete annihilation.
Vic Viper is the undisputed Intergalactic Coolest Spacecraft Ever.
Vic Viper is all. All are Vic Viper.
Launch "VIC VIPER"!
Fly, "VIC VIPER"! You are our last hope!
