The Fighting machine (also known as "Tripod") is one of the fictional machines used by the Martians in H.G. Wells' 1898 classic science fiction novel The War of the Worlds. It is a fast-moving, three-legged walker, reported to be 100 feet tall, with multiple whip-like tentacles used for grasping, and two lethal weapons: the heat-ray and a gun-like tube used for discharging canisters of a poisonous chemical black smoke that kills humans and animals. It is the primary machine the Martians use when they invade Earth, along with the handling machine, the flying machine, and the embankment machine.

  • No romance de H.G. Wells, A Guerra dos Mundos (War of the Worlds), tripods é o nome dado às máquinas alienígenas fictícias oriundas do planeta Marte. Com uma altura considerável, cada uma delas possuiria três pés mecânicos que as sustentaríam e uma cabine de comando com o tamanho aproximado de uma casa que emitiria luz. Seríam controladas por marcianos que teriam como objetivo exterminar e pulverizar os humanos. Os tripods possuiriam um laser incinerador e tentáculos que permitiriam aos alienígenas explorar o planeta sem ter que sair da cabine da máquina. No romance de Wells, os tripods chegaram a partir de cilindros que a semelhavam a meteoro, que era lançado de Marte. (pt)
