The Cobra-class destroyer is one of the smallest warp-capable ships in the Imperial fleet, and also one of the fastest. It fills two roles in the Imperial Navy. The first, and most common, is a torpedo vessel. Armed with massive anti-warship torpedoes, squadrons of Cobras are agile enough to dart into fleet engagements, launch spreads of ordinance, then flee—hopefully before their larger adversaries can hit them with a massed broadside. Although no ship could be said to be mass-produced in the Imperium, the Cobra is one of the simplest to build, with a well-equipped shipyard able to construct one in only several years. This makes them popular with Rogue Traders who are —relatively—destitute. A Cobra can be far easier to procure than a cruiser, and still possesses a warp drive. Many Rogue Traders who do so retrofit a Cobra to remove the massive torpedo bays, however, to create space for cargo or other weapons.
