Using the basic frame of a Earth Hatchet fighter, cut down nothing more than a engine and weapon system, the Raider is inexpensive, quickly constructed and easily transported to theaters of operation. To light and disposable for standing militaries, they are especially appealing to mercenary and pirate coteries who have more personnel than resources.
Most believe that Welan-Yutani must be getting kickbacks from the illegal sales of these black market favorites, otherwise they would be more stringently protecting their intellectual property.
