The standard War Raider Mark II can be upgraded to the War Raider Mark II Advanced at a cost of 30,000 Cubits.
The ship was an in-game promotion of the televised prequel, Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome.

The ship was then made available worldwide at a price of 23,000 Cubits after Bigpoint and Syfy concluded negotiations to allow non US players access to the ship.
