The interior of the full scale Cylon Raider cockpit set measures 9' x 10' x 7'1.5" while the maximum width of the 4' 1.5" high "windshield" is 8'1" . The shape and dimensions of the windshield are in fairly good agreement with those of the SFX miniature; the full scale vehicle would be about 41 feet (12.5 meters) long and 50.5 feet (15.4 meters) wide.
- Cylon ships of the identical appearance were used during the Cylon War in the Re-imagined Series (TRS: "Razor").
- In Galactica 1980, these Raiders are still in use 30 years since the Fall of the Twelve Colonies. However, they are slowly being phased out by an advanced Raider with increased firepower and other advanced technologies ("The Super Scouts, Part I", "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part I").
- The fourth issue of the re-imagined Galactica 1980 comic book series identifies the mainstay Cylon Raider as an "alpha class." As this is a separate continuity source, this is not considered canon to either the Original Series or its spin-off.
