SPEC WPNS 2

Mine’s bigger than yours. Too much swarfega

Purists (like myself) of the true Mk III travel machine form can have a problem with this one. Its a freak BUT when it emerged in the otherwise forgettable Remembrance of the Daleks story and went into action I have to admit it got my complete attention. A Dalek Panzer tank!  I assume the Daleks themselves are ashamed of it and keep it locked away its appearance so abhorrent to them hence its filthy neglected casing.  I like one published theory in an Ben Aaronovitch novel (not read) that hypothesised that the release of high levels of radiation required to operate the machine altered the structure of the Dalek creature’s brain causing it to go insane (or more insane than normal Dalek behaviour!) It was therefore shunned by other Daleks and only used in extreme circumstances owing to its tendency to attack every living creature including allied Daleks.  For those with a keen eye it also got the briefest of cameo’s in the new series Dalek Asylum.   One I’d like to see return and only slightly reworked, a mean old beastie.
