Once more into the fray
Into the last good fight I'll ever know
Live and die on this day

Hi my friends!

Something strange has caught my attention few months ago… look at this!

Duga (Russian: Дуга) was a Soviet over-the-horizon (OTH) radar system used as part of the Soviet ABM early-warning network. The system operated from July 1976 to December 1989. Two operational Duga radars were deployed, one near Chernobyl and Chernihiv in what was then called the Ukrainian SSR (present-day Ukraine), the other in eastern Siberia.

The Duga systems were extremely powerful, over 10 MW in some cases, and broadcast in the shortwave radio bands. They appeared without warning, sounding like a sharp, repetitive tapping noise at 10 Hz,[1] which led to it being nicknamed by shortwave listeners the Russian Woodpecker. The random frequency hops disrupted legitimate broadcast, amateur radio, commercial aviation communications, utility transmissions, and resulted in thousands of complaints by many countries worldwide. The signal became such a nuisance that some receivers such as amateur radios and televisions actually began including 'Woodpecker Blankers' in their design.

The unclaimed signal was a source for much speculation, giving rise to theories such as Soviet mind control and weather control experiments. However, many experts and amateur radio hobbyists quickly realized it to be an over-the-horizon radar system. NATO military intelligence had already photographed[citation needed] the system and given it the NATO reporting name of either STEEL WORK or STEEL YARD. This theory was publicly confirmed after the fall of the Soviet Union. (Source: Wikipedia)

This strange story inspired me...

I want to create something big and mechanical...
A giant robot, realized with post-apocalyptic industrial technologies.

Maybe... a giant “Gattai” robot!

Popularized by Japanese giant robot tv shows, the term “Gattai” literally refers to the act of merging two seperate entities.
It's often interchangable with similiar terms such as fusion, combination, joining, etc.

What do you think about this?
