The following information relates to the fan-made FS2_Open game Diaspora, based on the Battlestar Galactica universe.
The Cylon Raider.


Diaspora Tech Room Description

Radically different than the Cylon Raider encountered thirty years ago, the speed and manuverability of the new Cylon Raider is far superior to the original design. The new Cylon Raider is a dedicated space superiority fighter, and intelligence reports indicate that they attack with almost a pack mentality, leading to speculation about animal-like qualities in their programming. The Cylon Raider has also demonstrated electronics warfare capabilities through its use of the Command Network Protocol backdoor. For ships that this vulnerability does not apply to, the Cylon Raider is a Class C threat.

Cannon fodder. They're much slower than the Viper Mark VII and have thinner armor. They can be quite agile but you should be able to easily gun them down in droves. An interesting thing to note is that the Raider is not so much a ship as a creature, and this is noted if you make a mission where you play as one--instead of flying a Viper from a cockpit, you ARE a Raider.
