The Tiger I tanks of sPzAbt 505 took part in the mammoth battle of Kursk on the Eastern Front in July 1943. Tank #214 featured a two-tone camouflage pattern with Red Brown over the base of Dark Yellow, and an interesting bull emblem on the front of the hull. Relive the atmosphere of that famous battle by collecting this beautiful display model.
This fantastic model is ready built and comes with all radio gear, a battery and charger. Simply put on charge and you are ready to go. Just about every sound the real Tiger I made can be made on Tamiya’s 1:16 scale Tiger I. When the tank is switched on, either a manual crank start sound, or an automatic engine start sound is heard. After your engine is turned over, its time to move the tank around. As you accelerate, the engine thundering increases just like the real Tiger I. If you stop the tank, the sound of authentic idling begins. Once you have located your target, rotate the massive turret and listen to the grinding of gears of the real German war machine.
The only working King Tiger tank in the world is on display at the Saumur Tank Museum in France. Since the Tiger I used basically the same type of Maybach power plant, some Tamiya staff members made their way to France to investigate. They recorded all the sounds of the real tank including; battery start-up, crank start-up, fly-wheel sound, etc. All the sounds of the enormous V-12 700hp engine have been clearly recorded and are waiting for you in Tamiya’s 1:16 R/C Tiger I kit.Features:1:16 scale professionally assembled R/C tank Turret can be rotated Cannon can be raised, lowered and fired Recreated sound effects, recorded from a real Tiger Working machine gun Torsion bar suspensionDMD control unit Factory assembled gearbox Assembled tracks
