The Raptor.


Diaspora Tech Room Description

Developed as a multirole platform serving transport and electronic warfare roles, the Raptor played an instrumental role in the final years of the Cylon-Colonial war. Pilots affectionately call the Raptor 'the turkey.' Despite her mass, which led to her namesake, the Raptor is easy to control, due to her advanced fly-by-wire systems. The Raptor's modular spaceframe allows for a wide range of possible configurations, including recon and 'toaster hunter' variants.

Although the primary weapon mount doesn't look like a weapon, it has been confirmed that the Raptor is indeed intended to be armed, and that the weapon mount isn't simply a dummy put in place to stop debug warnings. The current weapon mount is not final.
