|The SCWS-2 Maul|
Blue Planet Tech Room Description
SCWS-2 Maul. A Shekar-Johnson Weapons product, second component of the Vulcan/Maul suite. The Maul is a heavy plasma weapon with a low cyclic rate of fire and good performance against both armor and shields. Lacks the advanced fire control system used on the Prometheus and Rapier weapon systems, but compensates with higher base damage than even the Prometheus due to excellent excitation and packaging systems. Considerable utility against bombers and targets that demand snap deflection shots for effective engagement. Demand for the Maul has increased as the war has proceeded, due to a spreading perception that the Vulcan is not performing to standards outside of the bomb intercept role.
|Rate of Fire||2.86 shots per second|
