NOTES:
-Cylon ships of the identical appearance were used during the Cylon War in the Re-imagined Series (Razor).
-In Galactica 1980, these Raiders are still in use 30 years since the Fall of the Twelve Colonies. However, they are slowly being phased out by an advanced Raider with increased firepower and other advanced technologies ("The Super Scouts, Part I", "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part I").

DESCRIPTION:
   The Raider is the primary fighter attack craft of the Cylons. Raiders are typically crewed by three Centurions. Two centurions sit up front at the controls to pilot the ship, while the third centurion sits on a raised chair behind the others to command and coordinate (The Hand of God).
   It is armed with two forward-firing laser cannons and can carry bombs in bays within the wings and on racks mounted beneath the wings (Lost Planet of the Gods, Part II). Oval in shape, the piloted Raider has two sublight engines for propulsion. The vehicle is both space and atmosphere-capable (The Long Patrol).
   On extended missions, Raiders have been known to be accompanied by fuel tankers. This allows wings of Raiders to cross large areas of space (relatively speaking) at sublight speeds without the aid of a basestar. This tactic is normally used on sneak attack missions, allowing Raider wings to slip past enemy defenses undetected, whereas a basestar would easily be spotted by enemy scanners (Sage of a Star World).
   Despite their larger crew and greater potential for firepower, the Raider often finds itself outmatched by the Colonial Viper. This may be in part to the greater maneuverability of the Viper, and the skill of the Colonial Warriors that fly them. Apollo seems confident in his ability to defeat Raiders if they possess any fewer than 10 to 1 in numbers (Sage of a Star World).
