MechWarrior - Mauler MAL-1R Free Mech Paper Model DownloadThis mech paper model is a Mauler MAL-1R, a Draconis Combine mech being produced by Luthien Armor Works, from the game series, the papercraft is created by [unknown], and the scale is in 1:40. This design is based on the spectacular failure, the Daboku. While much of the advanced technology was pioneered in the Daboku, time has allowed Combine scientists further study and refine the Star League technology it employed.

This 90-ton assault 'Mech was codenamed Mauler by the Federated Commonwealth, allegedly when it was first seen in the Luthien Armor Works proving grounds around 3050 although other sources indicate that this design, then in its first stage (the Daboku), was already deployed along the Draconis Combine border as early as 3038 in selected DCMS units. Because the Daboku turned out a design failure suffering from construction flaws, LAW adopted the FedCom codename Mauler for its redesigned successor in order to avoid the stigma, effectively treating it as a new Mech.

The Mauler is protected with eleven and a half tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor and has a maximum speed of 54 km/h. Built to engage targets at extremely long ranges, the 'Mech is armed almost solely with long range weaponry. While this left the Mauler vulnerable to rushing by Mechs armed with short range weaponry, a skilled MechWarrior can use the range advantage offered to minimize damage to the Mauler while simultaneously causing as much damage as possible to enemy combatants. The 'Mech is particularly unsuited to urban combat where its long range weaponry has substantial difficulty in targeting enemy units.

The Mauler is armed with four Imperator Smoothie-2 Autocannon/2s as its longest ranged primary weapons. Individually, the damage the AC/2s deal is insignificant, but together they can steadily whittle away armor at extreme range. The 'Mech also carries two Shigunga LRM-15 launchers, adding much needed punch to the extreme reach of its four autocannons. The Mech also carries two Victory Nickel Alloy ER Large Lasers for added long range punch.

While the Mauler is outfitted with CASE to protect its vulnerable ammunition bays, its heavily ballistic and missile based weapons complement forces reliance on secure supply lines to properly satiate its weaponry's voracious appetite for ammunition. [Source: Sarna]
