RT81 was a walkerbot that fought in the New Blood Championship, part of the second series of Robot Wars Extreme. It lost in the first round to Chip and Edge Hog.

The name derives from its owner, Andrew Lovelace's involvement with the Round Table, hence RT81.

DesignEdit

RT81 was circular shaped, with a chassis made out of a lorry road tyre and armed with a large electric-driven hammer mounted on a 360-degree turret. The robot also featured side skirts around the base of the tyre, but was extremely sluggish with a top speed of only 2mph. RT81 was painted yellow and black in its New Blood appearance.

QualificationEdit

RT80

RT80, which failed to qualify for Series 6

RT81 originally attempted to qualify for Series 6 using a white colour-scheme, at the time known as RT80. However, it did not win its qualifier battle, and instead earned a place in the New Blood Championship through direct application.

Edge Hog axes RT81

RT81 was placed in Heat B of the New Blood Championship, and it was pitted against Chip and Edge Hog in its first round battle. In the battle however, RT81 moved so slowly that Mr. Psycho had to push it out into the middle of the arena, roughly where Edge Hog and Chip were currently fighting. After that, RT81 suffered numerous axe blows from Edge Hog, and soon began smoking. Edge Hog punctured the rubber armour of RT81 and got its axe stuck. Chip slammed RT81 multiple times, but did not cause any visible damage.

RT81's tyre is crushed by Sir Killalot

After Edge Hog eventually got loose, RT81 was pushed against the arena side wall by Mr. Psycho. RT81 was clearly immobilised by now, so despite Edge Hog having also lost mobility on one side, it was attacked by the claw weapons of Mr. Psycho and Sir Killalot, before being put under the Drop Zone, where a cooker landed on it. Cease was eventually called, and RT81 was eliminated from the competition.
