"We want a large visually exciting but performance orientated design. It has to have massive ground clearance and full off-road capability. In addition to a lifting device it also needs an offensive weapon."
— The team's website

Type 320, stylised by the team as TYPE 320, was a robot that attempted to qualify for Series 3 of Robot Wars. It is currently unknown whether the team attempted to qualify for any other series.

Design[]

Type 320 was designed to be a four-wheel drive lifter with two independently powered pods, similar to Milly-Ann Bug. The robot would sport a lifting arm, powered by two linear actuators capable of lifting 300lbs, and a narrow scoop at the front to get underneath opponents.[1] Despite the website's mention of an offensive weapon in addition to the lifter, there is no further mention of a secondary weapon on their website, or detail of this on the teams prototypes.

As the team wanted this robot to mimick an all-terrain vehicle, Type 320 had four 15" diameter wheels for drive would allow the robot to theoretically run inverted, and these were later increased to 18" in the build process. The robot was armoured in kevlar and glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), and made use of aluminium for its main chassis.

According to the team's website, each half of Type 320 housed its own separate batteries, receiver and controller, making it a relatively complex design.[2]

The team would prototype several different designs, including a radically different clay model which bears strong resemblance to Series 1 competitor Barry.

The team mention a later MDF prototype of Type 320, however there is no evidence of this, or any actual build photos. Due to this, it is uncertain how close to completion Type 320 was at the time of Series 3 auditions.
