The Mark-VII incorporates the traditional three engined arrangement mounted in a triangular layout (2 on the bottom / 1 on top). Unlike previous generations of Viper the Mark-VII is surprisingly sleek and agile and puts greater emphasis on aerodynamic performance as well as spaceborne mobility. The fighter incorporates a blended wing design allows air to pass over it much more smoothly than on the older Vipers.
[The design incorporates stealth features designed to reduce its DRADIS signature thus making it more difficult to detect in a heavy ECM environment although it is not s true stealth fighter such as the StealthStar.
