      Information
      Chaos 2 is one of the most successful and well known of robots in the UK Combat circuit today, it was built in 1999 for Series 3 of Robot Wars as the successor to George Francis's previous robots Chaos and also Robot the Bruce. The robot was built in 6 months and cost £250 to build. Chaos 2 is the first ever robot in history to defend its title twice in a row after winning Series 3 and 4. It also became the first robot to flip a robot out the arena, this is a tactic that a lot of flipper robots have nowadays. Chaos 2 is too old and outdated now to compete in events, but George Francis who still has it, occasionally takes it to the Robot Rumble events where it has been seen on static display along with other veterans like Cassius, Stinger, Steel Avenger and many more.

      So... after a long... overdue conversation with myself, I decided to just put Ratatoskr on the backburner for now... but now I've got new ideas, and I
