The Raptor is designed to play multiple roles, ranging from reconnaissance and scouting, to supporting missions with electronic countermeasures and deploying additional firepower. It is slower and less maneuverable than a Viper, but it is capable of short-range FTL jumps and can be armed to fight back Cylons.
The Raptor is an excellent tactical craft for search-and-rescue operations, as well as for transport of military forces and technicians. It can also be equipped for short and medium range scans of spacecraft signatures and planet surfaces.
The Raptor can be equipped with additional internal and external armaments on the fuselage and wings, such as autocannon and missile pods, for defensive and offensive operations where combat is to be expected.
Sharon Boomer Valerii is one of the best Raptor pilots in the fleet, serving for two years on the Galactica, when she was still unaware of her identity as a Cylon infiltrator. This pack includes Boomers pilot card and skill cards.
