'''Anvil''' was the Royal Air Force's entry in the two Forces specials of [[Extreme Series 1]]. It was a low, flat robot able to run either way up, could travel at 13.6mph, had an enhanced drive train, was shock-resistant and had three ramming spikes as its main weapon. It also had great pushing power - in training, it easily pushed a 15 stone man standing on an anvil, hence its name. It won both Forces specials it competed in, despite being pushed into the pit by [[Dead Metal]] on two occasions.

Anvil fought in both Armed Forces tournaments of the first series of Extreme. Firstly it faced [[Mega-Hurts]] of the Navy and [[Rhino (Extreme 1)|Rhino]] of the Army, where Rhino immediatly drove into the pit release button. Anvil then pushed Rhino, but Rhino turned and used its pushing power to push Anvil close to the pit. However it escaped and Rhino persued it, Mega-Hurts then rammed Anvil and Rhino drove up on top of Anvil and then drove over it and Mega-Hurts. Anvil continued to ram Rhino, managing to dislodge one of Rhino's tracks. Meanwhile Mega-Hurts seemed to have steering issues and got itself stuck on the edge of the pit. Rhino then pushed Mega-Hurts down, but was then pushed in by Anvil and Dead Metal, who then shoved Anvil into the pit as well. The judges decided that Anvil had won.

Anvil returned in a special episode dedicated to see which Force had the best robot. In the first round it faced [[Sub-Version]] from the Submarine Corps and [[Shockwave]] of the Police. Anvil didn't need to do much here as Shockwave fell down the pit early on. In the next round it faced the Fire Service entry of [[Oblark]] and won through after pushing Oblark around, and over, until its lifting arm broke off, to go through to the final, where it faced Mega-Hurts. Once again, it easily pushed Mega-Hurts around the arena, pushing it against the walls and into the CPZs. As the fight drew to a close, Anvil pushed Mega-Hurts into the CPZ nearest the pit, where Dead Metal tried to attack both robots and pushed Anvil away, causing it to drive into the pit. The Mega-Hurts team thought they'd won, but the judges took the view that Dead Metal had interfered and judged the battle up until that moment. The resulting decision allowed Anvil to become the Forces Special Champion.
