Courier and Reconnaissance
Both in space and atmospheric environments
Replaced with extra fuel pods
This repainted and refitted Mark II was pulled from the museum aboard the Battlestar Galactica and forced into service during the first few, panicked hours after the Cylon attack on the Colonies. Since then, it has been painted black to make it sink into the dark background of deep space, hiding it from visual scans. It has had every bit of unnecessary equipment pulled out, sacrificing mass for acceleration. Targeting systems have been replaced with electronic countermeasures pulled from a Raptor, allowing it to spoof enemy dradus. All these changes make it an ideal short-range, high-velocity recon and courier ship used on black ops throughout the fleet.
