Dundee was a box wedge shaped robot that competed in Series 3 of Robot Wars. Designed to look like a crocodile, it was armed with a versatile weapon system, consisting of an electric-driven circular saw, mounted inside and protruding from a wedge ram lined with metal "teeth", which could both lift up other robots when it was down, and bite down as a crushing mechanism when it was open.

The robot itself was mostly built from salvaged materials - its drivetrain and weaponry were both driven by drive chains from a car, the "teeth" were made from chains from a hospital hoist, the chassis was built from the framework of a physiotherapist's couch, and the armour was made from the metal of freezers.

Robot History Edit

In its only battle it came up against Series 2 runner-up, Cassius 2, who beat the team in the Heat Final of the previous series. The fight started very quickly with both robots being quite fast. Dundee dodged Cassius 2's first flip and managed to push Cassius 2 into Sir Killalot, but it escaped. The two robots then bashed into each other, attempting to push each other into a CPZ, which Cassius 2 succeeded in doing. However Dundee skillfully steered away to launch another assault on Cassius 2, but then just as Jonathan Pearce said "Dundee, already doing better than Loco did", Cassius 2 got underneath Dundee and flipped it onto its back. Again, with no way to self-right, Dundee were eliminated, but unusually was ignored by the House Robots, who were instead occupied by Cassius 2 attacking Matilda and Shunt.
