The Advanced Raptor is a modified variant of the standard Raptor. It is often compared to the Advanced Heavy Raider of the Cylon faction which has a near-equivalent layout and systems setup.
You can purchase the Advanced Raptor for 30,000 Cubits. After advancing the Raptor, you can optionally purchase a Fleet Reconnaissance Variant for 45,000 Cubits. This ship can be advanced at Delta Canopis by seeing SCPO Chief Galen Tyrol. You must be at least Level 1 to advance this ship.
"A standard Raptor that has been stripped, rebuilt and highly tuned under the supervision of Chief Tyrol. Lightweight modern composites strengthen the hull, while customized electronics management and fire control components push performance to the limit.
The Advanced Raptor's hull is stronger and more durable than the standard version, and it can mount additional weapon and computer systems." - SCPO Galen Tyrol
The Advanced Raptor is an Command Strike, meaning that it has computers than hull or engines. It can give deadly electronic support and warfare with its extended Emitter Ratings and take electronic warfare with its high Firewall rating. Setups vary somewhat with the Raptor, but it is commonly used as a jump ship for strike squads. Where it lacks Hull Points and Engine power, it makes up for electronics and firepower. Being an Advanced Strike, it is more balanced than the standard Raptor with its addition of 1 Weapon and 1 Comptuer system slots. The Raptor is one of the most underestimated strike ships in the game. Many pilots fear it with its electronic capabilities.
