MechCommander 2 - Simple Drillson Hovertank Free Paper Model DownloadThis paper model is a simple low poly Drillson, from the real-time tactics video game MechCommander 2 of the BattleTech/MechWarrior franchise, the papercraft is created by Vlmarshall. The size of finished model is about 73 (H) x 153 (W) x 102 (D) mm.

Entering service with the Lyran Commonwealth's military in 3025, the Drillson is another example of the LCAF's preference for heavy vehicles. The excellent performance of this heavy hovertank during the Fourth Succession War established it as one of the best of its type. The government of the Federated Suns was sufficiently impressed to make the Drillson a mainstay of the then forming Armed Forces of the Federated Commonwealth.

The Drillson is very heavy for a hover vehicle. Much of this weight is invested in protection. The vehicle features six and half tons of ArcShield armor evenly spread across the tank, with somewhat stronger protection in the front and on the turret. This heavy protection, combined with the powerful armament, make the Drillson much more durable in combat than is usual with hover vehicles. This survivabilty allows the type to take part in the direct support of BattleMechs in combat.

The targeting systems available to Drillson crews almost equal BattleMech-standards, featuring a full 360° view of the battlefield and a direct connection with the turret-mounted Laser. [Source: sarna]
