The three energy Hardpoints of the COM-1B, all of which are located in the arms, give the 'Mech a 120° firing arc for all energy weapons. The center mounted missile hardpoint ensures the -1B has something to fire should all other sections of the 'Mech get destroyed.
When compared to the -1D, the COM-1B downgrades its short range missile array to add a Medium Laser and a ton of armor. This gives the Commando more independence from ammunition and a greater range to attack with. Additional armor increases its survivability.
Like all Commandos, the -1B possesses impressive Speed and maneuverability. Arm mounted energy weapons give the 'Mech a wide firing arc angle.
The -1B lacks any noticeable flaws, but lacks the Commando COM-2D's ability to mount the extremely useful ECM.
The center torso missile hardpoint supports up to 10 tubes.
