Yes, it's an offset puncher on a full-body turret. Yes, it has mecanum wheels. Yes, this was designed with zero fucks given.


Stats? You want stats? I'll give you some stats. (right after another picture, that is)

<big><big><big>Talons Out&#33;</big></big></big>
<big>and teeth sharpened</big>


The main configuration is 2WD with a 360 lifter/clamp: 9 speed / 9 traction / 3 torque / 4 weapon (3/3) / 5 armour


It's restatted for this tournament because why not and the secondary config is not available. I really don't think this bot needs anymore explanation, but have some anyways: All the shit you'd expect to be removable is removable. The symbol used is the two-headed Hapsburg eagle. The quote is Machiavelli. The name is from the song linked in the subtitle above. The actual title links to the album. Click it. It shows the optional wedge teeth and hammer blocker, which exist. 100%.



<big><big><big><big>[font=arial]Meanstreak II (Gabe's Unnaturally Long Socks Edition)[/font]</big></big></big></big>


Yes, it's a fast drum intended to be used exclusively as a flipper. Yes, it's fully invertible and can easily toss itself back over.


Yes, the 'rocket boosters' are removable (the 'flames' are made of white light, fans, and sheer fabric, anyways).


Yes, its weapon and the weapon supports get weapon armour. Yes, it'll have a drum that can actually do damage if I enter it in another event.


Yes, it's memestreak and it's back. No, it's not a FW. It's a HW this time.

8 speed / 8 traction / 1 torque / 5 weapon / 8 armour
ARC Record: 420-1

I am compete

Featherweight Sportsman:


Speed: 7
Traction: 6
Torque: 3
Weapon: 6 (lifter 4, clamp 4)
Armor: 8

Solifuge is a full-body clamp. Two lifting arms on either side of the chassis press downward, tilting the entire chassis backward with sufficient speed and power to reverse-suplex an opponent, and a curved claw powered by a leadscrew actuator bites down on them. The clamp mechanism prioritizes speed over power, only biting hard enough to hold opponents in place. However, the mechanism is non-backdrivable and very strong, making it very difficult for opponents to knock themselves free. It can self-right by closing the clamp and lifting the arms all the way, as well as using torque reaction with its powerful drivetrain.

Clamp and arms fully raised
Lifting range. Arms can move slightly farther than this, but this will flip the robot.

<hr />


Speed: 6
Traction: 5
Torque: 2
Weapon: 7
Armor: 10

Same old front-hinged flipper, but now faster at 17 MPH and more controllable due to changes in weight distribution. The armor is thinner due to the lack of spinners, and the flipper's power has been further reduced. It still has a spring-loaded "tail" to help prevent wheelies, and still has a secondary solenoid valve which can shut off flow from one of the robot's two accumulator tanks. This allows the flipper to be fired at greatly reduced power, which both saves gas when self-righting and prevents the robot from going too far and landing on its back again (and not having to attempt to self-right multiple times saves even more gas and possibly the match). As an added bonus, this means that when Aphelion self-rights it takes less time for the accumulators to refill. Oh, and the exhaust system now operates an airhorn, sized for the perfect "MLG" pitch.

The flipper may be weaker, but it can still toss an opponent 4-5 feet in the air, and with a running start is capable of HUGE horizontal distances. With a 4 ft flip height and a 60 degree launch angle relative to the robot, it can throw a robot over a 3 ft wall from about 7 feet away with a standing start, 12 feet away with a 5 MPH start, and 18 feet away with a 10 MPH start. Basically, this lets it OOTA opponents from most of the Robogames arena.

Flipper range of motion

FW - Nuisance


Overhead Tentomushi-style trapper with pontoon wedges on the side and a big plastic shell to eat up damage. Despite the limited movement in the pictures, the arm holding the trapper can rotate up to 200 degrees backwards, and has a small wedge on the front to let it operate as a lifter. Also has an alternate dustpan setup (shown in the third pic). 6 torque too because lol why not :dirk:

Speed: 8
Torque: 6
Traction: 8
Armor: 6
Weapon: 2



Yep, it's a torque reaction chainsaw. The dustpan is what moves. Trying to "lift" the opponent with the pressing wedge will cause the chainsaw to rotate 175 degrees from its base position in the leftmost pic onto the opponent. The chainsaw is electrically-driven and can be turned on and off at any time so I don't scratch up the floor.

Speed: 5
Torque: 1
Traction: 4
Armor: 5
Weapon: 15 (14 saw, 1 lifter)

Speed: 6
Traction: 5
Torque: 2
Weapon: 8
Armor: 9 (+1 front wedge)

Definitley not a projection of my democratic socialist revolutionary beliefs onto my fantasy robot combat team, no sir. 4WD Chomp-style hammer with a hinged anti-spinner scoop in the front. Pretty standard, but should be a good spinner killer. Has ground clearance.

Team Mongoose
"The Colour of Awesome"

FW: You Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar But I Feel Like A Millionaire

2WD dumb thwack with a slightly hinged frontal plow. Goes about 5 degrees either way, so the wedge can stay on the ground, but can't fold up under the bot. Cambered wheels for extra stability. Weakly invertible, i.e. it can still drive about freely and thwack but the wedge will be upside down.

Spd: 9
Tra: 9
Tor: 4
Wep: N/A
Arm: 8


Golden 6WD machine with an electric axe that can strike twice a second, dual lifting arms that operate as one, and removable hinged skirts. Why are they removable? To save enough weight so I can swap the separate lifting arms for a single lifting plow&#33; Because the weaponry still functions in the same manner, I don't believe this requires any points deduction. Wheels stick out the back to keep them on the ground when gotten underneath, same reason the skirts are angled as they are. Can self-right using the axe, lifters (with some reversing), or both at once.

Spd: 7
Tra: 7
Tor: 4
Wep: 4 (3 lifter, 3 axe)
Arm: 8
