M51 Super Sherman radio control tank

Date:3 July 2012 Tags:,

One of several variants of an Allied forces’ armoured mainstay, the US-built M4 medium tank, the M51 Super Sherman is now ready to do duty on domestic (miniature, that is) battlefronts. The front-mounted gearbox contains two Type 380 motors that can operate together or individually to produce forward/reverse running and pivot turning. In addition, realistic sounds accompany engine operations, turret rotation, gun barrel elevation and depression. Hull-mounted main gun can be elevated, depressed, and swung to the left and right. Catch the tank in action…
