I got the mauler hull as a prize in the latest battle pirates raid, 'Dragon's nest'. This is a possible build that I thought of.
Weapons - 6 shockwave N mortars
Armour - 4 DU4
Specials - eng 2, explosive shell 2, alloy armour (45% ballistic and explosive)
1 sea scorpion
Weapons - 6 hailstorm B, 1 shockwave B
Armour - 1 DU4
Specials - eng 1(same speed as mauler with eng 2), countermeasure 2( only 1 I got), abalative armour 3
This fleet could be good as the shockwaves are the best for damage and accuracy but normally get hit by howies, with the high ballistic defence you do not need to worry about getting hit by them.
