War Of The Worlds Wiki
This is uberpod


The Über Tripods, also known as the Uberpods, are a type of large fighting-machines that only appears in the 2005 film adaptation of H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds.

Design and Function[]

In terms of design, the Uberpods bear a striking resemblance to the standard Tripods. However, they distinguish themselves through their towering stature, standing at an impressive height of 177 feet. This grand scale is further accentuated by their larger hoods, which add to their imposing presence on the battlefield.

The Uberpods are also characterized by their distinctive lighting system. Unlike the standard Tripods, which are equipped with just two headlights, the Uberpods boast a set of four. This not only enhances their visibility but also contributes to their intimidating appearance. Despite this modification, the Uberpods retain the massive central headlight that is a hallmark of their standard counterparts, creating a fusion of the old and new. This intricate design serves as a testament to the advanced technology and strategic prowess of the extraterrestrial beings that deploy these machines.
