SAT'arn was a wedge shaped robot that competed in Series 1 of Robot Wars. Its armament consisted of front 'horns' made from shelving brackets bolted together. SAT'arn was based on a Tamiya monster truck with a thick (10mm) fibreglass shell. This shell was the robot's undoing as it weighed too much and went out in the semi final.
As Series 1 did not have any weight rules, SAT'arn competed in the main competition, despite being a featherweight robot. It managed to get to the Arena stage of its heat, before going out to future featherweight champion, Demolisher.
Robot History Edit
In the Gauntlet, SAT'arn appeared to have good manoeuvrability and dodged Sergeant Bash, but it looked a little uncontrollable as it drove first into the side railings and then into a pyramid. However it got away from them and neatly dodged Matilda to complete the course. It was shown to have completed it in the quickest time even though Demolisher only appeared to take nine seconds. In the Trial, which was Stock Car, SAT'arn started well only to be involved in a first corner crash with Cunning Plan and Demolisher. All three robots escaped and Demolisher quickly clocked up two laps before crashing again and getting flipped over. Meanwhile SAT'arn was making steady progress completing one lap, whilst Cunning Plan was on its second. SAT'arn finished a second lap and was shortly followed over the line by Cunning Plan, which had completed its final lap to win the race. SAT'arn came joint second and qualified for the arena, where it met Demolisher. SAT'arn charged Demolisher, but missed. SAT'arn then seemed to break down and was attacked by Matilda's chainsaw, ideal for cutting into SAT'arn's wooden armour. However Demolisher got in the way and actually stopped large amounts of damage being done to SAT'arn. This didn't help SAT'arn in the long run and was fully immobilised and eliminated from the competition.
