At nearly three kilometres long, the Raynor is one of the largest ships in the Alliance fleet. Several heavy beam cannons and long-range torpedo launchers are placed around her hull, and she is equipped with the most advanced electronics and armour technology the GTVA can afford. The Raynor represents the new strategic imperatives laid out by the Threat Exigency Initiative: a flexible destroyer class with the firepower to eliminate Shivan targets, the speed to outrun them, and the power grid and computers required for rapid precise subspace jumps, all in a package that can be mass-produced. The GTD Orestes is a superb example of this class, serving as the flagship of the 14th battlegroup.

The stock Raynor has a lot of firepower spread out evenly across most of its hull. This makes it a threat from any direction except from the rear.


In Blue Planet, the Raynor is not a giant GTC Aeolus but compared to the anti-fighter defenses on previous destroyers, it's a huge improvement. The Raynor will absorb several waves of Shivan bombers itself, but it's wise to escort them anyway. If you're attacking, avoid approaching the top or the bottom, as nearly all of the anti-fighter firepower on the ship can be focused in those areas. The destroyer scale version of the pulse weaponry on the top and bottom of a Raynor will kill a fighter in only a few hits. The relatively lightly defended sides should be your target. They're protected mostly by AAA and some Terran Turret 2s. Also note that the turrets on the Raynor are surprisingly tough.
