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 is well–armed, carrying tri–barreled automatic cannons, which are able to sustain high rates of fire, and can equip ship–to–ship missiles. It is lethal in dogfights and can be converted into anti–aircraft batteries for attacks on planetary surface.
