In Battlestar Galactica™ — Starship Battles, players take control of Colonial and Cylon spaceships and face each other in furious dog fights and daring missions. The innovative game system features easy to learn rules, a unique set of maneuver cards for each spaceship, and two exclusive devices — the control panel (included in the Starter Set or as a separate accessory — BSG501A) and the rotating miniature base (included in each Spaceship Pack). Each Battlestar Galactica — Spaceship Pack is a ready–to–play model, painted and assembled. The Heavy Raider is a Cylon multifunctional spacecraft, used to attack colonial ships and transport Cylon fighters on boarding missions. Like a Cylon Raider, this spacecraft is sentient and self–flying. It can also be piloted by Centurions or human–form Cylons, but its lack of windows forces the pilot to rely on electronics only to navigate. The Heavy Raider has a thick armor, can resist intense enemy fire, and it is equipped with more powerful weaponry than a standard Raider. It’s also a troop transport, perfect to carry Centurions onto planet surfaces or aboard human Battlestars.
