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


Diaspora Tech Room Description

The Cylon Heavy Raider is roughly equivalent to the Colonial Raptor. However, the Heavy Raider is armed with six high caliber KEWs designed for close support roles. The reinforced hull of the Heavy Raider also makes it suited for ship boarding actions, as well as the deployment of Centurions and munitions planetside. Certain variants may include a cockpit for a humanoid Cylon model to pilot the vessel. However, Heavy Raiders are primarily piloted by veteran Cylon Raider minds. The Cylon Heavy Raider is considered a Class A threat.

Veteran Comments

Please read the Veteran Comments policy before editing this section.

Whatever you do, do not get in front of this thing; it will tear you to pieces. However, if you approach it from behind, it is so clumsy that it won't have a chance of shaking you. The only problem is chewing through its impressive hitpoints before it fires on its target, because any civilian ship attacked by a Heavy Raider WILL be in for a world of hurt.
