When all the other raiders were destroyed while the Rebellion was taking Terok Nor. Julian Bashir and Jadzia Dax took this vessel in order to distract the alliance fleet under Regent Worf by generating warp shadows in order to fool the alliance's sensors to see multiple vessels instead of just one.

Together the Raider and Defiant caused crippling damage to the Regent's flagship prompting the Regent to choose to retreat giving the rebels victory. (DS9: "Shattered Mirror")
