Robot Wars UK - Series III

The series finally comes to a close. The battles have been long and hard, but Chaos II reigns supreme, and what a worthy winner at that. Those of us that first saw Chaos II in action last year knew that it was going to take something very special to stop it - nothing special enough showed up! Despite the excellence of all the competitors that took part, the quality of battles that the two finalists were involved in give a good indication of the measure of the robots.
