The Advanced Rhino is a modified variant of the standard Rhino. It is often compared to the Advanced Marauder of the Cylon faction which has a near-equivalent layout and systems setup.
You can advance the Rhino for 40,000 Cubits. You must have the standard Rhino before you can advance it. 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 reclaimed Rhino that has undergone additional repairs and a more comprehensive refit, replacing older components and fully integrating modern colonial fire control systems. A rear firing tail gun has been added to the armament." - SCPO Galen Tyrol
The Advanced Rhino is an Assault Strike, meaning that it has more hull and armor than engines or computers. It can be impenetrable with Strike Damage Control systems or additional Armor and Hull platings. Setups do not vary much with this ship as it is not commonly used in strike-to-strike combat. Where it lacks Firewall rating and speed, it makes up for Hull, Armor, and firepower. If the right setup is found, the Advanced Rhino can be a deadly asset to a squadron.
Common Juggernaut setups for the Rhino for taking out large ships use 4 forward-facing HD-96 'Nova' Light Missile Launchers and a rear-facing MEC-A9 'Hawk' Light Autocannon for shooting off missiles.
