Roter Osche was a robot that competed in the Super Heavyweight Championship in UK Robot Wars Series 2, although at 166.1 kilos, it was actually 12 kilos over the weight limit for Super Heavyweights and twice as Heavy as some of its opponents. It was a large cutoff wedge shape with an oil barrel on top. Its weapon was a Kango brand demolition hammer - a handheld-sized jackhammer. This weapon was capable of massive damage, even buckling the arena wall. However this, in conjunction with its tendency to spring out of control, saw it disqualified on safety grounds from its only battle. It was the heaviest robot in the entire history of Robot Wars that was not a walkerbot, a shufflebot or a House Robot.
Roter Osche is German for "red ox."
Robot History Edit
When the 8.5 horsepower Honda was started before the match with a few pulls on its power cord, Roter Osche uncontrollably jumped into life. Roter Osche was eventually stopped and the match was deemed safe to start. When the battle did begin however, Roter Osche went out of control once again, smashing through the arena wall and into a television camera after 55 seconds had elapsed. The bout was cancelled with immediate effect, with Siren being declared the winner.
