Tamiya's ultimate tank is here!
Here's a rundown on the major features of this most amazing R/C AFV:
* Full motion control via a new DMD unit -- forward, reverse, turns, turn-in-place, turret rotation, barrel elevation.
* Authentic sound system recreates all of the sounds for the above actions, plus two versions of the start-up sound (crank/flywheel and battery), idling and shutdown. Tamiya digitally recorded the working Maybach engine in France just for this kit!
* Firing of main gun accompanied by strobe flash, sound and barrel recoil/hull kickback for the ultimate in realism. Bow machine gun also flashes when firing.
* Duralumin inner hull, die-cast drive sprocket and idler wheels, rubber-rimmed road wheels, commander figure and more.
* Comes with everything you need to make it run including 4-channel radio & receiver, 7.2V batteries and charger (batteries for radio not included), and all the inner mechanism required to accomplish the features listed above.
Note that Tamiya item #56010, the export version of this kit (which we cannot supply) that is available overseas does not include the radio, battery charger and batteries. However, the kit you get from HobbyLink Japan ( #56009) includes all the radio and battery equipment you need to get going. Keep this very important fact in mind when comparing prices with overseas locations!
