Raider (piracy)

A raider is a person who commits robbery at sea. With use of raid tactics, the raiders uses the naval strategy of attacking an opponent's commercial shipping rather than contending for command of the sea with its naval forces. The raiders destroy supplies of the enemy instead of engaging the combatant themselves. When the raiders are at war, they break into places and plunder.

[edit] Pop culture

The raider image is used in several sports organizations such as the NFL team, the Oakland Raiders.
