The Maulus is offered for free via the TEST Free program. Please see the Test Free page for details.
The Maulus is a high-tech vessel, specialized for electronic warfare. It is particularly valued in fleet warfare due to its optimization for sensor dampening technology.
The Maulus is the Gallente EWAR frigate, and has bonuses to sensor dampening. It has 4 mid and 3 low slots, plus a larger-than-normal drone bay. The Maulus can be fit with 3 damps and a propulsion module in the mids, with a small armor tank, damage control and a speed module in the lows. Performance can be enhanced by using scripts.
The real power of Sensor Damps comes in fleet fights. Typically enemy logistics ships will be “at range” away from the fight so that your fleet cannot shoot at them. Applying Sensor Damps with Targeting Range scripts to those logi ships forces them to stay closer to the fight so that they can lock their fleetmates. Range Dampening other enemy ewar (like Blackbirds) is also highly effective, as they will usually be at range too. Scan Resolution scripts are great for Scan Res dampening enemy logi that are in close to the fight. These are usually very tanky ships (like Guardians), and Scan Res damps will slow the speed at which they can lock their fleetmates to rep them, giving your fleet a significant edge.
