The Cylon Raider Mark 1, produced by The GalTech Industries Corporation, forms the backbone of the Cylon Empire’s fighter force. Designed to combine agility with a fearsome strike capability a Cylon Raider Mark 1 is more than a match for many opponents. With a crew of three centurions, (commander, pilot and co-pilot), a combination of tasks can be undertaken whilst in combat.

These strengths combined with the standard Cylon tactic of deploying these ships in small attack groups have proved devastatingly effective against humankind in resent times.

Standard Equipment

Forward Military Laser and ECM.

Ship Variants

The ship is available as a NPC ship only.

Minimum Requirements

The OXP was designed to work on Oolite 1.76 but should also be compatible with future versions (The shipdata.plist is incompatible with versions prior to v1.75 because of the use of scan_class and escort_ship keys). No additional OXPs are required to be installed in order for this OXP to run.


Move the OXZ file to the AddOns directory of your Oolite installation. Start the game up while pressing the "SHIFT" key until the rotating ship appears. The ship should than be added to your game.
