Alabama Slammer's repaint for Season 5.0.

It performed really well in BattleBots as it reached the round 16 in Season 4.0 and winning two consolation rumbles in Season 3.0 and 5.0.

Twin Paradox tears a piece off of Alabama Slammer.

One consequence of carrying Sunshine Lollibot around was that it strained Alabama Slammer's drive motors, and they had to be replaced. During the repairs, the IFI radio was not strapped down. This would be fatal. As Alabama Slammer went straight at Twin Paradox, missing on its flip, Twin Paradox hit Alabama Slammer with its blade and Alabama Slammer stopped moving.
