Meet Fanny, the world's largest robot who's a fire-breathing walking DRAGON


Looking like a creature straight out of the Game of Thrones TV series, Fanny is a 30-foot high, fire-breathing mechanical dragon that can flap its 40-foot wings and walk on all fours.

Designed by German electronic firm, Zollner Elektronik AG, the creature is powered by four remote controls, a two-litre turbo diesel engine and a series of hydraulic valves.

The beast was created as part of the Tradinno project - a portmanteau of 'tradition' and 'innovation' - set up to build the dragon that features in German folk play Drachenstich.

Fanny was awarded the largest walking robot accolade in the 2014 edition of the Guinness World Records book.

The Drachenstich play, which means Spearing the Dragon or more literally, dragon stab, has been performed in the town of Furth im Wald for the past 500 years.

Its story is a take on the legend of Saint George and was adapted during the early 1950s to symbolise the threat of communism from the East.
