Sgt. Meikle was a competitor robot that exclusively fought in Series 3 of Robot Wars, named after an engineering lecturer who the team took inspiration from. It was a large black robot built by 13 people over 7 months, with a serrated duralium-headed axe and a pneumatic spike powered by CO2 for its weaponry, and 3mm-thick aluminium armour plating. It lost in the first round to Darke Destroyer.
Robot History Edit
Sgt. Meikle participated in Heat F of the Third Wars, and was drawn up against fellow newcomers in Darke Destroyer in the first round. There was a slow start to this battle, Sgt. Meikle soon used its axe weapon, but with no effect. The Darke Destroyer scratched Sgt. Meikle's paintwork, but did little else - its blade jammed against the bodywork of the opponent. Both robots drove around with their ineffective weapons. The robots hit each other again, and The Darke Destroyer's blades were compressed. The battle eventually ended in a judges' decision, the decision went in favour of Darke Destroyer, eliminating Sgt. Meikle from the competition.
