How much is the Anaconda in Elite Dangerous

It’s not cheap, put it that way, and it’s certainly not for everyone. You are going to need a fat wallet to kit out this bad boy, and even then you might be able to get a ship more suited to a particular task. Where the Anaconda shines, however, is its ability to multi-task, so if you are a bit a jack of all trades the credits may be well spent.
