    Information
    Banana-R-Armour is a heavyweight robot that was built in Nottingham in 2000. It was the first ever robot built by John Findlay of Roaming Robots and was built for Robot Wars Series 4. However, Banana-R-Armour lost in the qualifiers against Big Brother where it broke down after 4 seconds. After Series 4, Banana-R-Armour was scrapped and parts of it were salvaged for John Findlay's creation T-Bone which managed to qualify for the Fifth Wars.
