Advanced A-B Raider
The massive A-B Raider is an advanced form of Raider. It has a crew of five, consisting of two Cylon Androids (Andromus and Andromidus) and three Centurions. Its exact offensive and defensive capabilities are unknown. It seems to possess an offensive range far greater than that of conventional Raiders (and Colonial Vipers) as well as some form of communication jamming.
In the only recorded encounter, Captain Kanon and Lieutenant Britton discover the A-B Raider while on recon duty in a two-seat version Colonial Viper. Unable to damage it with the Viper's conventional weapons, Kanon rams the A-B Raider, crippling both craft. The A-B Raider's trajectory causes it to crash on the surface of Earth, destroying all its occupants except its Commander, Andromus, and one of the Centurion pilots. While Lieutenant Britton is injured in the collision, the Viper manages to limp back to Galactica to report their findings on this new threat and the fact that the Cylons have landed (The Night the Cylons Landed).
