Tiny was a heavyweight robot built to compete in Robot Wars: The Fourth Wars, built by Francis Smith. It ultimately did not appear on television, with the team making their debut in Series 7 with Ceros.
Design[edit | edit source]
- "This is Tiny, my attempt at a vertical spinner. This was my first solo project and proved quite a handful, unfortunately this is the only picture I have of her not fully built and yes before you ask that's not the real blade. This was very early on in the build process."
- — Francis Smith describes the pictured version of Tiny
Tiny was an invertible robot armed with a large vertical spinner, one of the pioneering vertical flywheels in the United Kingdom after Daisy Chopper. This gave Tiny good damage output and reach, although its two large tyres and shallow framework were exposed to attack.
The Team[edit | edit source]
Tiny was built by Francis Smith, who had previously withdrawn from the Third Wars with his first robot Typhoon. After Tiny did not appear in the Fourth Wars, the team would later compete in Series 7 with Ceros.
Qualification[edit | edit source]
Tiny competed at the touring qualifier battles for Series 4, where it fought future Fifth Wars competitor Rohog in its only known battle. The outcome of the battle is unknown, but neither robot qualified for the series.
