Brimhur was a low box wedge shaped robot that competed in Series 3 of Robot Wars. It was an invertible four wheel drive machine, one of five invertible machines in the first Heat of The Third Wars. The bodyshell was made of 3mm thick aluminium and its weapon was a hardened steel spike, powered by a pneumatic ram. Brimhur's electronics were custom designed by team member Paul Mainwaring. It also had sharpened cutters on each of its wheels, presumably to be a reference to the use of wheel spikes on Roman Chariots, as seen in the film "Ben Hur", which also inspired its name.
Brimhur lost its only battle against Weeliwako, and was one of the many Series 3 competitors that did not return in any other Series.
Robot History Edit
Brimhur's first battle started very slowly as Weeliwako tried to turn into Brimhur, but Brimhur managed to hit Weeliwako a few times with its spike. However Weeliwako then came on the attack, landing a couple of axe blows on the top of Brimhur. Brimhur then pushed Weeliwako against the arena wall, but its opponent continued to land axe blows. Brimhur pushed Weeliwako into Sir Killalot's CPZ, but Weeliwako seemed to be stronger as it pushed Brimhur back onto the flame pit, where Brimhur became immobilised. The House Robots then came in and Shunt axed a large hole into the top of Brimhur and actually lifted Brimhur up when it retracted its axe. Shunt continued to attack Brimhur until cease was called, which meant Brimhur was out of the competition.
