You are certainly on the right track reading the materials closely.  I strongly suspect the clause in question would be better placed under "Required condition visible at the end of the match".  

Regarding the definition of "team supplied" -- Rule 14 - Strategic Objects states: Strategic objects are team-supplied objects, either handled by you, in Base, or handled and abandoned by the robot (wherever) by design.  Robot is defined separately in Rule 12 and Attachments are also separately defined in Rule 13.  Therefore I do not believe "robot" or "attachment" are subsumed in the reference to "team supplied."  Team supplied strategic objects usually means something like a crate or basket that the team created to confine the scoring object for delivery.

I look forward to our Head Referee's definitive answer since my view is speculation.

Can we use an attachment (which I guess is “team supplied”) to get the “insert” to the mission? Or is this saying that whatever touches the insert has to be a permanent part of the robot?
