Apollo is a heavyweight robot which competed in and won the 2016 series of Robot Wars. It was built by Team MAD, who previously entered Featherweight Championships and the Antweight Championship in Extreme 2, but had never competed on the show with a heavyweight robot before. Apollo is a white, black and chequered wedge-shaped robot with a powerful flipper, running at 1000psi. The robot's name and aesthetics are derived from NASA's Apollo space program and the spacecraft used for these missions. This also inspired the name of the robot's weapon - Team MAD refer to their flipper as a 'launcher'. Apollo's flipper is capable of throwing a 100kg heavyweight six feet into the air, and also has a half-power option, for ease of use as a srimech.
