Very cool. Particularly the projectile weapon - which I think wouldn't have been allowed under the old televised robot wars rules...

You were allowed projectile weapons on Robot Wars, but they had to be tethered to the robot on a string/chain of no more than 1m long or somesuch. They were rarely used, because anything powerful enough to be effective in that contest would have been horribly dangerous.
