MechCommander 2 - Starslayer Free Mech Paper Model DownloadThis mech paper model is Starslayer, a Mech 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 204 (H) x 95 (W) x 125 (D) mm.

The Starslayer was intended to replace the Crab as the Star League's standard medium 'Mech after Cosara Weaponries were unable to meet the SLDF's required production volumes. Though Blue Shot's design won selection in 2765, the Starslayer would also be plagued with technical delays with its tracking system that would delay full production until 2772 and the Amaris Civil War. Despite the SLDF's desperate need for material, tensions between General Kerensky and Archon Robert Steiner II would result in Blue Shot delaying SLDF shipments until 2781 due to lack of "up-to-date" shipping information and as a result the Starslayer would be far more common in the LCAF service than the SLDF. By now a thoroughly Lyran Commonwealth design, production of the original 2C Starslayer would cease during the technological decline of the early Succession Wars, with Blue Shot Weaponry resuming with the superior and updated STY-3C model in wake of the Clan Invasion.

The Starslayer is built on a lightweight Thor-4 Endo Steel chassis and reaches a top speed of 86.4 km/h with its Magna 250 fusion engine. The Starslayer also has five Odin's Own Model 34z jump jetswhich give it the ability to jump up to one hundred and fifty meters. Finally, the design carries nine and a half tons of Norse-34 Ferro-Fibrous with CASE. The CASE protects the BattleMech from complete destruction in the event of an ammunition explosion. [Source: sarna]
