    Default Have we seen this?

    Lifted from Ares' Faceache page, don't know if this has already been posted. Ye Olde Cylon Raider, the approved injection shot in the pipeline after the release of the Viper Mk.VII.

    Run for your life - there are stupid people everywhere!

    Saw it on my FB feed this morning, Steve - good on you for posting it here! It looks pretty spiffing to me...

    All the best,
    Matt

    Making room in my Cylon hangar for a flight of these toasters.

    These look great! But canonically, they're going to be very hard to take down.

    After all, if the original series teaches us anything, it's that this Cylon Raider can only be destroyed from very specific angles. I mean, you only every see them die from like 8 camera angles total. Well, make that 16: apparently mirror angles work too.

    Clearly it's going to take some precision flying to get into those exact firing positions.

    Not official, but I have been advised the above card is close. I tried to base this on the series, but I think at Prague, the Mk I was Structure 12.

    Are we watching the same show? I'm rewatching BSG TOS at the moment, they are one shot kills. Hit them and they are dead. Mind you, so are Vipers unless a lead character is in the chair . No rotation for these guys either; so keeping things simple.

    The model seems to have too many weapons. The guns are shown as twin "barreled" but for a TOS raider they should be singles.

    I... think you should reread my post to get the joke.

    Yeah, it was early.

    But still, give them Structure 2 to be in keeping with the show

    I don't think that they had FTL capability in the original series.

    They can rotate.

    Demo was in Prague.

    Structure 11 points.

    ...and a single barrel guns on the prototype card.


    Nice find, Steve!

    "They can rotate"

    Nothing rotated in TOS. The closest thing to a soecial manoeuvre was the ability of the Vipers to use turbo boost in reverse.
