The modern Raider, radically redesigned but still resembling its past incarnation as a giant flying wing, was first encountered more than 40 years after the Cylon War.The new Raider was initially thought to be wholly mechanical in design, with a high-level AI controlling it. However the new Raider is found to be, in fact, biomechanical in nature, incorporating a number of large organs in its design, including a biomechanical brain. In effect, a modern Raider is a creature in itself.
