An advanced weapon system designed to punch through armor plating at long-range. Has a low rate of fire and high per-shot damage.

A brutal weapon, the heavy mauler is designed to engage targets at medium to long-range. At its core, the weapon is an autocannon with a nano-cooling system and an external ejection port. However, unlike normal autocannons, the Heavy Mauler is distinguished by an antimatter barrel charger fed by trivial amounts of standard starship fuel.

When leaving the firing chamber, each shell ogive is charged with a field of anti-protons which hovers 10-20 nanometers in front of the shell, stabilized by a baryon coating. On impact with a target, this anti-proton "sheath" loses structural integrity and the resulting reaction does further damage. Given the fact that shells already deliver impressive destructive force to the target, the combined reaction makes the Heavy Mauler particularly effective versus armored targets.

–In-Game Description

The Heavy Mauler is a medium ballistic weapon, favored for standoff anti-armor use due to its high damage per shot, long range and manageable flux output. However, it lacks the sustained fire capability of the Assault Chaingun.
