Raptor Class by Ikechi1 Raptor Class by Ikechi1
The Raptor is the ultimate hunter; fast, agile, vicious, and stealthy. It can dart quickly through the jungle, creep from bush to bush, leap between rooftops, and generally run circles around its prey. The greatest challenge the Raptor faces is determining how to get up close to make its attack, as open ground can be covered quickly but its body cannot withstand too much damage.

The Commando and Scientist will have difficulty keeping a moving Raptor in their sights; a large threat is from the Trapper and his ability to immobilize.

Disclaimer: Yes we know about the arms and yes we are aware about the lack of feathers involved. We have feathered skins for the raptor so when it comes out you can choose from all three definitions of Tomozaurus' raptors. Also we are not calling it by any specific raptor name, just raptor.

hi again!
while reading some articles about bird evolution i found this: [link]
i don't know if deinonychosauria could perform W.A.I.R., but i think that would be awesome if the Raptor and the Compsognathus could do that(to climb or reach windows), even in their 'nekkid' skins.

i think the deinonychus would have been too large for W.A.I.R also the compy has been exchanged for the carnotaurus

depends, Deinonychus Antirrhopus was 73 kg\160 lbs, considering this is pretty lightweight for a 3 meters long animal and how strong their legs were i think they probably could do it, even if not as good as smaller fellows.

really carnotaurus replaced compsognathus? why?

its hard to program horde mode in a tf2 style gameplay and we have a deadline, so compy will be DLC

ok.
so, we have the Tyrannosaurus(tank), the generic Raptor(assault), the Dilophosaurus(guerrilla) and the pteranodon(scout\support), but what's the Carnotaurus's role?

beautifully done. and as far as I'm concerned the feather thing hasn't been proven yet since no fossils show feathers yet.
but as for the picture, wonderful lighting and posing on this reptile. looks very predatory.

Here is this list for you

Tyrannosauroidea
- Dilong (filamentous proto-feathers on at least the upper and lower of the tail and the lower jaw)
- Tyrannosaurus (scales on the underside of the tail. Undescribed patch of skin may show branching feathers)
- Tarbosaurus (undescribed scales from the throat region forming a dewlap)
- Gorgosaurus (undescribed scaly skin. Unknown where on the body)
- Undescribed supposed Tyrannosaurid with proto-feathers on the tail.
- Undescribed large, feathered, long-tailed carnivorous theropod is probably a tyrannosauroid. May be the same as the specimen above.

Compsognathidae
- Compsognathus (scales on at least part of the lower tail)
- Juravenator (scales on at least the lower tail and at least part of the hind legs and end of the snout, proto-feathers on at least the top of the tail )
- Sinosauropteryx (proto-feathers on at least the complete length of spine including the neck and tail and the lower tail from the tip to about three quarters of the way back towards the body)
- Sinocalliopteryx (proto-feathers on at least the top of the neck, back, hips and base of the tail, the back of the thigh, the metatarsus and the tip of the tail <top and bottom>. Some on the top of the tail base were 10 cm long)


What we know from this: Early coelurosaurs seemed to have a mixture of proto-feathers and scales, with scales commonly found on the lower and deeper areas on the tail and on the legs. Proto-feathers seem to have covered at the very least the spinal cord, thinner parts of the tail and the neck/head area. Sinocalliopteryx does show that they covered the legs down to but not including the tarsometatarsus in at least some species.

Ornithomimosauria
- Pelecanimimus (naked skin on the throat pouch)

What we know from this: If I had to reconstruct an Ornithomimosaur I would probably give it something of a half-way point between the early coelurosaurs mentioned above and the Therizinosaurs below.

Therizinosauroidea
- Beipiaosaurus (body covered mostly in proto-feathers similar to that of the early coelurosaurs with longer examples arranged on the arm. No feathers on the head)

What we know from this: Seems to probably be an intermediate stage between the early and more advanced coelurosaurs, as one would expect.

Alvarezsauridae
- Shuvuuia (poorly preserved examples of some kind of feathering)
- Undescribed supposed alvarezsaurid which preserves feathers

What we know from this: Alvarezsaurids where feathered. Exactly how we don’t know.

Oviraptorosauria
- Avimimus (quill knobs infer veined feathers on the forelimbs)
- Protarchaeopteryx (symmetrical, veined feathers on the forelimbs and as a fan on the tail tip)
- Caudipteryx (primary feathers on second finger and as a fan on tip of the tail. Secondary feathers preserved in C. dongi but not C. zoui. Short, simple feathers cover the body. Fingers are scaly)
- Similicaudipteryx (primary feathers on second finger and as a fan on the tip of the tail. Secondary feathers on the ulna. Body covered in short, simple feathers. Juvenile shows no secondary feathers, showing that they grew as the animal matured)
- Nomingia (fused vertebrae at the tip of the tail indicate possible presence of a tail fan)
- Oviraptorosaurs found in the brooding position also suggests extensive feathering as brooding would be redundant without them.

What we know from this: Oviraptorsaurians seemed to all show proper, barbed primary feathers on the second finger and proper veined feathers on the tip of the tail in the form of a fan. They all also seem to show a covering of simple feathers on the body. Similicaudipteryx shows that at least some had secondary feathers as well, and this likely was the norm.

Pedopenna
- Known only from the legs. Long barbed feathers on the metatarsal forming leg wings, including coverts. The feathers of the legs are more plumaceous than those of Deinonychosaurs, showing a decreased aerodynamic ability.

What we know from this: It is unclear where Pedopenna stands, but more seem to place it a little closer to Avialae than to Dromaeosauridae. Either way it seems to be more primitive than either and the best evidence that the ancestor of both these groups possessed wings on both the arms and legs.

Scansoriopterygidae
- Scansoriopteryx (juvenile holotype shows a covering of down like feathers arranged in a similar fashion to down on avians. The lower tail is covered in scales and the tip shows a fan of veined feathers similar to that of Microraptor. It is theorized that adults had quite developed flight feathers on the arms and hands and may have been able to glide)
- Yixianosaurus (poorly preserved impressions show feathers possibly similar to the avians discovered in the same beds)
- Epidexipteryx (four extremely long veined feathers on the tail. Simple barbed feathers cover the body)

What we know from this: Scansoriopterygids were weird. They appear to have been covered mostly in primitive downy feathers with advanced feathers on at least the tail and maybe the arms. Scales present on the tail of some and no real tail at all in others.

Troodontidae
- Anchiornis (large rounded wings formed of large veined and barbed primaries and secondaries on the arms and the legs and a fan along most of the tail as in Archaeopteryx. The neck, head, torso, upper legs and the rest of the tail were covered in downy feathers while the hands and feet bore simpler filaments. No area of body was bare or scaly except for the claws and tip of snout. Crest of pennaceous feathers on the head)
- Jinfengopteryx (a vast covering of pennaceous feathers as in Anchiornis, but lacks the wings on the legs. Wings are folded against the body and indiscernible. Barbed tail fan like Anchiornis)
- Possible undescribed Troodontids (possibly including Mei) showing leg wings

What we know from this: Troodontids appear to be extensively feathered, similarly to avians. Strange that one species shows leg wings and the other does not. Apparently there is a reason to suppose leg wings were the norm in troodontids, and the loss in Jinfengopteryx is either an exception or taphonomic though I don’t know the details.

Dromaeosauridae
- Velociraptor (quill knobs infer fully developed pennaceous wings)
- Deinonychus (“proximal lateral flanges are present on the first second phalanx of manual digit.” [Parsons & Parsons ‘Further descriptions of the Osteology of Deinonychus antirrhopus ‘] This is a ‘side shelf’ homologous to the shelf in birds that serves as the basis anchor of the primary feathers)
- Sinornithosaurus (entire body seemingly covered in simple feathers similar to down. Wing feathers are not properly preserved but were almost certainly present. Possesses proximal lateral flanges likely for anchoring primary feathers as seen in Deinonychus. Fan of pennaceous feathers down the length of the tail similar to Archaeopteryx or Microraptor)
- NGMC 91 “Dave” (Downy feathers cover entire body except for the toes and the tip of the snout. Longest over the thighs. Barbed feathers on the forelimbs and hind limbs. Tail shows extensive fan of barbed feathers similar to Archaeopteryx. Scales on the toes)
- Microraptor (fully developed flight feathers on the arms and legs. Pennaceous feathers forming a fan along the length of the tail and downy feathers covering the rest of the body. Proto-feathers covering the fingers. Crest of pennaceous feathers on the head)
- Rahonavis (quill knobs infer fully developed pennaceous wings)
- Undescribed Dromaeosaurid which may be Sinornithosaurus shows leg wings. This could be a very large Microraptor though

What we know from this: At least Microraptorinae were covered in fully developed feathers with wings on the arms and the legs. Quill knobs and possibly feather bearing flanges infer that developed wings were also present in Velociraptorinae and Unenlagiinae.
