PST was a superheavyweight robot designed by Team Carnivore that was being built for Season 1.0 of BattleBots[1]. The design was going to imitate a Zoid toy Ilya Polyakov referenced on his website. It was to be build out of kevlar and titanium Ilya was trying to source from family connections back in Russia. The design would also feature a hydraulic pump powering the drive as opposed to battery power.

PST was being designed fully in CAD as opposed to Team Carnivore's previous robot Carnivore. Despite being fully designed and construction beginning, no pictures of PST were revealed by the team, nor was the weapon revealed. The building process for PST was stopped when design problems arose and BattleBots announced its competition dates would be two months earlier than previously anticipated. Ilya Polyakov decided he needed a simpler design to get something ready for the tournament and eventually made Blade Runner.[2] It is unknown if he ever revisited PST's design. Regardless, PST never competed on BattleBots.
