Boomer's Raptor.

The second wave of Spaceship Packs for Battlestar Galactica - Starship Battles, the combat miniature game based on the Battlestar Galactica™ TV series, is due to release this Summer, introducing the Colonial Raptor and the Cylon Heavy Raider. Each of them will be featured in three different versions, and the game's sections is updated with information and images of these upcoming expansions.

The Raptor is designed to play multiple roles, ranging from reconnaissance and scouting, to supporting missions with electronic countermeasures and deploying additional firepower. It is slower and less maneuverable than a Viper, but it is capable of short-range FTL jumps and can be armed to fight back Cylons. The three versions coming are the generic SAR/ECM, the Assault/Combat and the Sharon “Boomer” Valerii's Raptor.

Cylon Heavy Raider, Veteran version.

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. It's featured in three versions - generic Combat/Transport, Veteran and Captured.

The Spaceship Packs allow players to add more spaceships to the game. Each pack includes a ready-to-play model - painted and assembled, spaceship card, gaming base, maneuver deck and a set of pilot cards.
