The Viper Mark II is armed with a pair of forward-firing galvened KEWs mounted in the wing roots. The guns are capable of a 20 rounds-per-second firing rate. The Viper Mark II can "flip end for end" in only .35 seconds, meaning that at the press of a button the pilot can bring the fighter around to face the exact opposite direction. Like the Viper Mark I it is capable of quickly decelerating from maximum speed to a dead stop. The ejector seat functions like an EVA scooter.
The Viper Mark II made its combat debut at the Battle of Cardooine, where the Viper pilots took advantage of its ability to strafe while flying in a controlled drift to destroy their target, a U.E.V. weapons development station.
