From everything I've seen they're flat.

Yep, that's my read from watching B&C and from looking at the (very few) images on the wiki.

By the way, have you ever thought of trying a USN-style Tactical Paint Scheme (TPS, otherwise known as lo-viz) on the Viper Mark III (and by extension the Mark II)?

To me it looks like they're trying to go for a look more similar to the original series Vipers than the Mk. II's in the new series were.

Now that you mention it...

But Adama's still gotta get his mark 2 in Blood & Chrome to maintain continuity with BSG.

...oh yeah, and great frakkin work as always Canis.

I'm sure they'll get around to it... or not...

He hasn't as yet been assigned a Viper so we may see.

It is a bit odd though assigned a Viper pilot to fly Raptors, although we see Viper pilots in nBSG able to handle it easily enough.

We wouldn't swap even put an Eagle pilot into the cockpit of a Hornet with out a load of retraining, and they do the same sort of mission, Viper to Raptor is like F-16 to EA-6B Prowler!

Yeah, that's what I was referring to. I had meant to say intakes in my head but was a little too overtired for it too go through it seems. Chalk it down to only a couple of hours of sleep from last night, but after a three hour nap to charge my proverbial batteries I can at least make sense now. :blackeye

Hmm... I suppose. After giving the scene a second watch, it very well might just be a trick of the camera it seems.

True, but in both nBSG and BSG:B&C the term "Raptor-Rated" has been thrown around a bit. That to me signifies it isn't a commonplace skill set for Viper pilots. It's more likely that Adama received additional training in Raptors during his tenure in flight school.

And as far as his getting assigned to the weasel goes, I think the officer was doing two things when he did it. First, to knock the kid down a peg or two given his attitude. Secondly, considering the officer was short on Raptor pilots and not so much on Viper pilots and the kids rated for the bird... why the heck wouldn't you use him for that?

Who is "everyone"? I've never seen any version other than the one that was going to be the Mk. VIII/13th Tribe Viper that had a FSW planform.

There's the Scarlet Viper from Richard Hatch's attempt at a continuation...

Ah, that's probably why; I tend to avoid that site for certain reasons.
