    Information
    Kronic was originally built in Devon by Dave Lang, John Lang and Mike Gardener. The earliest versions of this machine fought in Robot Wars, but didn't enjoy much success in the UK Championships. In 2004 following the end of Robot Wars, Kronic was rebuilt to the current incarnation it is in now and has been a lot more successful in recent years. It has famously managed to win the UK Championships in 2005 and the 2006 International Championships. In 2010, Team Kronic decided to call it a day and sell Kronic to Team MAD from Leicestershire who helped Kronic win both the 2010 and 2011 annihilators emulating Kan-Opener as the double annihilator champion. Kronic had a very powerful flipper which was capable of lifting 2 heavyweight robots in one go and also flipping many robots out the arena from almost anywhere in the arena, having done so to famed faces such as Behemoth, Big Nipper and Iron-Awe. In late 2015, Alan Young retired Kronic and rebuilt it as Chronic.
