A Raider is a fast and deadly warship larger in size and tonnage than an attack craft that is commonly utilised by pirates, Renegades and other reprobates to strike at poorly armed merchant vessels, freighters and unprotected planetary colonies.

Vessels of this class have sometimes been used by the Imperial Navy when larger and less manueverable vessels would prove to be at a a tactical disadvantage.
