Additional Information


The ultimate evolution of the Cylon fighter technology.

These fighters are designed to deploy directly from the Modern Basestar hanger grids. Unlike thier first war predecessors, these biomechanical fighters are wholly sentient themselves, and do not require an independent pilot.


The Modern Cylon Raider was introduced to the game Battlestar Galactica Deadlock through the final DLC (Downloadable content) titled "Modern Ship Pack." This expansion adds six ships to the game that are featured heavily in the 2004 "reimagined" television series. As such, the Modern Cylon Raider is only accessible through skirmish, multiplayer and Operation Anabasis. The Modern Cylon Raider is not accessible in the campaign mode.

Game Abilities & Statistics

General stats

  • Squadron size: 16 Craft
  • Hull points: 56 (3.5 Hull per craft)
  • Speed: 360 m/s
  • Damage output: 0.3
  • Weapon range: 2500m (2000m effective range)

Special Abilities

Squad repair - All squadrons can be ordered to return to their parent ship and undergo repairs during battle, this can even replace lost craft in the squadron and can be done regardless of how much damage and losses the squadron has taken so long as it is still intact.

Missile interception - Modern Raiders can attempt to intercept incoming ordnance by giving orders to defend the target of incoming ordnance. The earlier the order is given the better, as it will take time for Modern Raiders to reach the target ordnance and dispose of it.

Improved Accuracy - Whilst not explicitly documented, Modern Raiders have improved accuracy over Raider Mark I's, making them more capable in combat.
