The RSTT-2 (or Two-Rusty) Loader Series robot was designed by Pickledog Robot Labs as a heavy loader on intergalactic space freighters. The RSTT-2 is heavier than its predecessor the RSTT-1 (Rusty-One) which was made of the lighter-weight Plastoluminium. The Rusty-One saw limited use do to a fault in its shoulder design which was prone to frequent dislocations.
The RSTT-2 featured a lobster grip loader, and hydro-lift suspension. Combined with an auto-level cassis, the RSTT-2 made its name as the most efficient heavy loader since the ForkBot model 8’s. Additional features included were a rear crane-hook, and upgradable memory system. The RSTT-2’s memory chips could easily be upgraded by the accessing the control box behind the bot’s face panel. The standard 64mb chips could then be swapped for a 124mb chip allowing the Two-Rusty to run the Foreman Control Software.
The RSTT-2 remained in production for six years, before the development of the RSTT-3. Recently the RSTT-2 has gained notoriety with space pirates and smugglers using a software hack known as FirstMate. There have been unconfirmed reports of captains running pirate vessels with entire crews made up of converted Two-Rusty’s.
