The Raider Skirmisher is a Raider unit that can be trained at the Raider Training Camp for 45. It has the defensive capabilities of a Raptor, combined with the punching power of a very powerful tank gun. In fact, its Talons are the strongest of any Raptor in Battle Nations, and its Tank Shell attack is comparable to that of the Mega Tank's, perhaps even more deadly considering the higher critical chance. Also, the Tank Shell also has great accuracy as this unit ranks up, rending it dangerous to most targets.
The tradeoff for such offensive power is the lack of armor and damage reduction, instead relying on good defense and above-average dodge. With high HP growths, the Allied Raider Skirmisher is quite useful against infantry and even tanks, making it versatile in most situations.
