The Terran raider was a type of small craft used by the Terran Resistance Forces in the mirror universe against the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance. The ships were equipped with warp drive and armed with at least one phaser. (DS9: "Through the Looking Glass", "Shattered Mirror")

Most of the rebellion's raiders were destroyed during a battle to capture Terok Nor, but Julian Bashir and Jadzia Dax took one of the remaining ships and managed to delay an incoming Alliance fleet long enough to allow the other rebels to complete construction of a new warship, the ISS Defiant. Bashir's raider returned to join the Battle of Terok Nor, and helped cause serious damage to the Regent's flagship. (DS9: "Shattered Mirror")

In the first draft script of "Through the Looking Glass", this ship design was initially described as "a type of ship we've never encountered before. It looks like a raiding ship, sleek and built for combat. Like the fighters of the Mirror Sisko, it bears an Earth and broken chain emblem." The final draft of the same episode's teleplay changed the initial description to instead refer to the vessel as "a ship very similar to the Maquis raider we saw in the Voyager pilot." [1]
Ultimately, the Terran raider appeared visually identical to the Federation attack fighter except for the cockpit interior, which was a redress of the Danube-class runabout cockpit interior.
