Penetrator offical image

Penetrator was a low box shaped robot that entered Series 2 of Robot Wars. It featured three ramming spikes; two at the front and one at the rear, and had an extending saw blade. The armour of Penetrator consisted of steel plates that overlapped for maximum protection. Penetrator's motors and wheels originated from a child's go-kart.

It didn't get very far, being eliminated in the Trial stage of its heat.

Robot History Edit

Penetrator started well as it smashed through the brick wall after its second attempt. It managed to go over the see-saw. However Penetrator was then pinned by Shunt and Dead Metal, Shunt attempting to axe holes into Penetrator. Dead Metal then pushed Penetrator back towards the start, but cease was called and Penetrator had covered enough distance to qualify for the Trial. The Trial was Tug of War which ended rather quickly for Penetrator as it only survived 9 seconds which wasn't enough to send it through to the arena.
