The Raider is a transformable mobile suit and the only second generation GAT-X machine to adopt the X300-series frame used by the GAT-X303 Aegis Gundam. Compared to the Aegis, Raider has improved anti-mobile suit capabilities when in MA mode and its transformation system is greatly simplified. It is actually a variant of the GAT-333 Raider Full Spec and maintains some of its characteristics, like a MA mode that is specialized for flight and the two large fighter plane-like main wings that give it full flight capabilities in the atmosphere. These wings also boost Raider's turning capabilities and acceleration speed on earth and in space, as well as allow it to serve as a subflight lifter unit for other mobile suits. During battles, Raider often utilize hit-and-run attacks and has Trans Phase Armor like the other second generation machines. Its armaments consist of a well-balanced set of energy weapons and shell-firing weapons, with some of them being only usable in flight mode. Lastly, Raider optionally uses a wire tethered mace-like handheld weapon.
