The Cylon Heavy Raider is a Command class Strike ship with the abilty to assist allies in battle with buffs and impede enemy ships with debuffs. Whilst other ships can do this, the Heavy Raider has 4 Computer System slots, more than any other strike, so the Heavy Raider excels in this aspect. With High speed and more Hull Points (50 more can save you in some situations) than a Raider, the Heavy Raider can absorb more damage while impeding enemies as well as allowing teammates to deal more damage. The Heavy Raider is best combined with Raiders for the ultimate low level wolf pack. You have to admit they look cute together.
