The Mamba's design places an emphasis on bringing heavy firepower to engagements. It features two small hardpoints, two large hardpoints, and 1 huge hardpoint, making it the only medium ship other than the Fer-de-Lance capable of mounting Class 4 weaponry. It is also the only ship of any size other than the Fer-de-Lance with a total of six utility slots. The Mamba's cockpit includes a secondary pilot seat, making the ship Multicrew-capable.
All of the Mamba's hardpoints are located on the ship's dorsal surface. The two small hardpoints are forward of the cockpit, the two large hardpoints are on either side of the cockpit, and the huge hardpoint is behind the cockpit. The Mamba is the second medium ship that can mount class 4 weaponry, the other being the Fer-De-lance also manufactured by Zorgon Peterson.
The two pilot seats are on the ship's centerline, in a blister-style dorsal cockpit. The primary pilot seat is at the front, while the secondary seat is directly behind it.
- The Mamba will be released with the Chapter Four (3.3) update of Elite Dangerous: Beyond in Q4 2018. Purchasing it requires owning Elite Dangerous: Horizons.
- The Mamba first appeared in Elite. It was originally a term for a loose collection of small single-seat high-speed racing ships using the classic 'wedge' or 'delta' hull shape, but the design was later standardized by Raddlett and Rayburn Shipyards in Reorte in the early 3100s. The design has since been acquired by and 'reimagined' by Zorgon Peterson.
- Engineer Bill Turner kept a vintage Mamba among the collection of ships stored at his base, Turner Metallics Inc, on Alioth 4 a.
- The Mamba was first revealed in the beta for Chapter Four (3.3) of Elite Dangerous: Beyond; while it was not initially for sale, players encountered several of the ships beings flown by NPCs.
