Description

The Kyosho PAID Type 10 Pocket Armour tank is a faithful recreation of the Japan Ground Self Defense Force. The Type 10 Tank series features enhancements to the chassis from the original series. The use of pliable materials in components such as the antenna and 50 caliber machine gun are ready for heavy action as well as scale realism. Plus, a rigid machine gun is also included for use as a display model. Tow cable and side curtains have been recreated with soft material to reproduce a molded finish that has never been achieved before. The updated chassis design smooths out the approach angle for improved climbing performance, while superior performance on road surfaces is achieved through optimized roller wheels and crawler belts. 

Superior quality, impeccable design and an exquisite finish create a look that is usually reserved for a display-only model. The level of detail found on the Pocket Armour series is obvious when you see the form, feel and paint that makes it hard to believe this is a 1/60 scale size desktop model. Regardless of size, the ultimate precision finish and detail on the body of the Type 10 has no rival. Shooting action of the tank and cannon audio creates a realistic tank feel, and it is all managed through the Bluetooth in your smartphone! 

Secure pairing allows one smartphone to maneuver up to 8 tanks simultaneously, just like a tank platoon. Set up linked movement control with your friends, or, link to multiple tanks to control independently. Download the iDriver app from the APP store or Google Play and pair your control device with the model in an internet connected environment. Authentication of the model and pairing information through the server is required so an internet connection is required at this stage and prevents non-genuine models and corrupt connections. The GUI control panel on the APP delivers comfortable and intuitive control that is easy for anyone to use with four movement control buttons and two shooting buttons. Select ‘Secret Mode’ to access the beta version of the ‘One-Hand Mode’ control that allows one hand to be used for changing settings etc., while the other hand controls operation of the model.

Description

This big scale 1/16 R/C Tank Series kit depicts the Jagdpanzer IV /70(V) Lang tank destroyer. The German AFV, which proved formidable following its introduction late in WWII, was a popular release in the 1/35 Military Miniature series of static models in 2014. The Lang (German for long) in its name was added to distinguish it from its predecessor with a shorter L/48 7.5cm gun; the design featuring a wedge-shaped glacis plate and utilizing the Pz.Kpfw. IV chassis was largely shared by the L/48 and L/70 varieties. 930 Jadgpanzer IV /70(V) Langs were produced between August 1944 and March 1945, and fought bravely in last-gasp actions such as along the Ardennes front from December 1944.

Description

Tamiyas peerless 1/16 R/C Tank products are the ultimate in realistic indulgence, and with the German Tiger I and King Tiger already released, it is only natural that we now add the famous Panther Type G to the lineup. Tamiya staff even visited the renowned collection of the Musee des Blindes in Saumur, France in order to create the most accurate Panther sounds possible. Pit it against the previously released US Sherman and Pershing tanks on your own mock battlefield.

The front-mounted gearbox contains two Type 380 motors that can operate together or individually to produce forward/reverse running and pivot turning. Metal torsion bars and suspension arms combine with the wide tracks to smoothly absorb bumps and dips in the terrain and provide high maneuverability. In addition, realistic engine sounds accompany the tank as it starts up, drives, and stops to idle. Hull-mounted main gun can be elevated, depressed, and swung to the left and right.

Description

The German Jagdpanther is widely regarded as one of the best, if not the best, tank destroyers of WWII, and Tamiyas 1/16 R/C assembly kit will enable fans to take command of this formidable AFV. With a total length of 605mm, this tank casts an imposing shadow and is fully-detailed as well. Housed in the sloped superstructure is the accurately reproduced L71 88mm gun, which can be moved and fired via a 4-channel transmitter. Realistic tank movement is made possible by the two gearboxes driving the caterpillar tracks, and both the gun barrel and tank react with lifelike recoil action when the main gun is fired.

Description

This is the newest kit release in the 1/16 R/C tank series. It recreates the Japanese Type 10 Tank, which is also available as a 1/35 scale model kit. The Type 10, of course, is the high-tech modern addition to the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF), and comes loaded with state-of-the-art features such as a newly-designed 120mm smooth-bore main gun, and modular armor. It was built to a relatively small and lightweight design for suitability of use in the mountainous Japanese archipelago, and offers excellent speed and maneuverability. Perhaps most importantly, it was also designed to be compatible with the modern C4I communications network system. Deployment started in 2012 and continues apace as the Type 10 looks set to be a key element of Japanese ground defense armor.

Description

Tamiya continues to develop its 1/16 R/C Tank Series. The fourth full-option kit to make its appearance is the German Heavy Tank King Tiger. Not only can the model move forward and backward and turn with a great sense of power, but the turret can be rotated and the 88mm gun raised and lowered. To imitate the firing of the main gun and of front machine gun, light flashes while sound is heard. The sound of the engine has been recorded, with the assistance of the French museum of Saumur, from a real Maybach HL230-P30 engine of the only King Tiger kept in working condition in the world. Not only all stages of engine sound (idling through full throttle) but also all the metallic clanking of the tank tracks have been thoroughly recorded.

During the second half of WWII, Zimmerit coating was applied on German tanks to protect them from the threat of magnetic mines. For this kit, the Zimmerit coating has been replicated with a unique relief printed seal. Thanks to this seal, you can now represent accurately a late war King Tiger with great ease.


About the German King Tiger (Henschel Turret)

The German Heavy Tank King Tiger made its appearance during WWII in 1944. The chassis front armor was 150mm thick with 80mm thick side armor and powered by a 700hp Maybach HL230-P30 engine. The Henschel and Porsche companies came up with rival turret prototypes. The first 50 tanks produced had Porsche turret whereas subsequent tanks were equipped with the Henschel designed production turret that featured many improvements over the first model. The King Tiger was armed with a 71-caliber 88mm gun that had enough power to pierce 150mm thick armor from 2000m away. Between The beginning of production in Summer 1944 and March 1945, 440 units were completed. Due to the havoc wreaked by the King Tiger during the final German offensive on the Ardennes front in December of 1944, the Allied forces that moved in on Berlin would fear the King Tiger up until the very last day of the war.


2 Types of Engine Starting Sounds

Besides using electric motor starter in general conditions, the King Tigers engine was started using a crank starter on cold days to save batteries power. This model realistically replicates both of these procedures. When switching on transmitter first, the crank starting sound is heard, but when you switch on the receiver first, electric motor starting sound is heard. You can now feel like you are part of the tank crew as you decide which procedure to follow based on temperature conditions.

The front-mounted gearbox contains two Type 380 motors that can operate together or individually to produce forward/reverse running and pivot turning. Metal torsion bars and suspension arms combine with the wide tracks to smoothly absorb bumps and dips in the terrain and provide high maneuverability. In addition, realistic engine sounds accompany the tank as it starts up, drives, and stops to idle. Hull-mounted main gun can be elevated, depressed, and swung to the left and right.

Description

Widely recognized as the best modern day Main Battle Tank (MBT), Tamiya introduces the latest German Leopard 2 tank, the Leopard 2 A6, to the 1/16 scale R/C tank series. Tamiyas biggest R/C tank ever, its just like driving the real thing!

About the Leopard 2 A6

Used by more than 10 European nations, Germanys Leopard 2 tanks are a perfect balance of firepower, protection, mobility and availability. With the Leopard 2A5 regarded as the most powerful tank in the world with superior protection and fire power, the latest Leopard 2, the 2A6, features an even more powerful weapon system. The Leopard 2A5 featured replaceable wedge shaped armor on the turret, improved PERI-R 17 panoramic Commanders sight with thermal vision, spall liner on the turret interior for protection against splinters, all-electric gun control and stabilization system for easy maintenance and reduced noise, GPS navigation system, electro-pneumatic drivers hatch and a CCD camera mounted on the rear of tank for high-speed reversing. The Leopard 2A6 featured improved firepower including a 55 caliber 120mm smoothbore main gun utilizing kinetic energy LKE II ammunition for higher muzzle speed and lethality. The 2A6 has been employed by the German 403 tank battalion since March 2001, and is scheduled to replace all German 2A5 tanks by 2006. The use of the 2A6 continues to spread throughout Europe with the Netherlands, Spain and Greece adopting the 2A6 for their main battle tank. With continued improvements the 2A6 continues to set new standards as the worlds best MBT.

Evolved DMD unit

The T-07 DMD unit provides the 1/16 R/C Leopard 2 A6 with more features than any other Tamiya R/C tank. The T-07 unit matches engine sound (which has been digitally recorded from a real MB873-Ka501 turbo-charged diesel engine) with tank movements, and controls various lightning combinations activated easily with transmitter. Turret rotation, gun elevation and firing sounds also add to the realism of this model. The T-07 unit and 7.2V battery are mounted in the turret for easy and quick accessibility.

Synchronized light and sound effects

The R/C Leopard 2 A6 is equipped with a sound speaker unit mounted at the center of the hull. A xenon flash tube is used to make gun firing more convincing. When fired, main gun recoils and then goes back smoothly to its initial position thanks to a gearbox mounted in the turret. Of course, these actions are coupled with sound effects which have been digitally recorded from the actual tank.

High mobility transmission

The R/C Leopard is powered by 2 high-torque Type 540 motors. A specially designed gearbox allows smooth power transmission at both low and high speeds. This system accurately imitates the transmission of the actual tank. One motor controls forward/backward movement and the other motor allows the tank to turn and rotate. Suspension comes equipped with torsion bars that give this model high mobility.

Smooth turret and gun movement

In order to obtain smooth rotation, the turret ring has been equipped with 20 steel balls. The newly designed system for gun elevation and recoil effect features a servo for more realistic movements. While rotating turret with gun in lowered position, the gun automatically raises and goes back to its initial position to avoid the engine deck, like the actual tank.

7 lighting combinations

The R/C leopard 2 A6 features various workable lights such as headlights, tail lamps, brake lights, black-out lights and rotating light. Model features 7 lighting combinations, 4 for tank during combat operations and 3 during non-combat operations. Main gun and axial machinegun also flash when fired.

Metal parts for accuracy

Kit includes die-cast sprockets and lathe-turned aluminum gun barrel. The double-pin tracks, which are equipped with pads made out of rubber like the actual tank, come pre-assembled. In order to obtain an even more striking feel of realism, mesh of the baskets mounted on rear of turret, and grills on the engine compartment cooling fans have been reproduced with photo-etched parts.

The front-mounted gearbox contains two Type 380 motors that can operate together or individually to produce forward/reverse running and pivot turning. Metal torsion bars and suspension arms combine with the wide tracks to smoothly absorb bumps and dips in the terrain and provide high maneuverability. In addition, realistic engine sounds accompany the tank as it starts up, drives, and stops to idle. Hull-mounted main gun can be elevated, depressed, and swung to the left and right.

Description

The Kyosho PAID Type 10 Pocket Armour tank is a faithful recreation of the Japan Ground Self Defense Force. The Type 10 Tank series features enhancements to the chassis from the original series. The use of pliable materials in components such as the antenna and 50 caliber machine gun are ready for heavy action as well as scale realism. Plus, a rigid machine gun is also included for use as a display model. Tow cable and side curtains have been recreated with soft material to reproduce a molded finish that has never been achieved before. The updated chassis design smooths out the approach angle for improved climbing performance, while superior performance on road surfaces is achieved through optimized roller wheels and crawler belts. 

Superior quality, impeccable design and an exquisite finish create a look that is usually reserved for a display-only model. The level of detail found on the Pocket Armour series is obvious when you see the form, feel and paint that makes it hard to believe this is a 1/60 scale size desktop model. Regardless of size, the ultimate precision finish and detail on the body of the Type 10 has no rival. Shooting action of the tank and cannon audio creates a realistic tank feel, and it is all managed through the Bluetooth in your smartphone!

Description

This big scale 1/16 R/C Tank Series kit depicts the Jagdpanzer IV /70(V) Lang tank destroyer. The German AFV, which proved formidable following its introduction late in WWII, was a popular release in the 1/35 Military Miniature series of static models in 2014. The Lang (German for long) in its name was added to distinguish it from its predecessor with a shorter L/48 7.5cm gun; the design featuring a wedge-shaped glacis plate and utilizing the Pz.Kpfw. IV chassis was largely shared by the L/48 and L/70 varieties. 930 Jadgpanzer IV /70(V) Langs were produced between August 1944 and March 1945, and fought bravely in last-gasp actions such as along the Ardennes front from December 1944.

Description

Tamiya continues to develop its 1/16 R/C Tank Series. The fourth full-option kit to make its appearance is the German Heavy Tank King Tiger. Not only can the model move forward and backward and turn with a great sense of power, but the turret can be rotated and the 88mm gun raised and lowered. To imitate the firing of the main gun and of front machine gun, light flashes while sound is heard. The sound of the engine has been recorded, with the assistance of the French museum of Saumur, from a real Maybach HL230-P30 engine of the only King Tiger kept in working condition in the world. Not only all stages of engine sound (idling through full throttle) but also all the metallic clanking of the tank tracks have been thoroughly recorded.

During the second half of WWII, Zimmerit coating was applied on German tanks to protect them from the threat of magnetic mines. For this kit, the Zimmerit coating has been replicated with a unique relief printed seal. Thanks to this seal, you can now represent accurately a late war King Tiger with great ease.


About the German King Tiger (Henschel Turret)

The German Heavy Tank King Tiger made its appearance during WWII in 1944. The chassis front armor was 150mm thick with 80mm thick side armor and powered by a 700hp Maybach HL230-P30 engine. The Henschel and Porsche companies came up with rival turret prototypes. The first 50 tanks produced had Porsche turret whereas subsequent tanks were equipped with the Henschel designed production turret that featured many improvements over the first model. The King Tiger was armed with a 71-caliber 88mm gun that had enough power to pierce 150mm thick armor from 2000m away. Between The beginning of production in Summer 1944 and March 1945, 440 units were completed. Due to the havoc wreaked by the King Tiger during the final German offensive on the Ardennes front in December of 1944, the Allied forces that moved in on Berlin would fear the King Tiger up until the very last day of the war.


2 Types of Engine Starting Sounds

Besides using electric motor starter in general conditions, the King Tigers engine was started using a crank starter on cold days to save batteries power. This model realistically replicates both of these procedures. When switching on transmitter first, the crank starting sound is heard, but when you switch on the receiver first, electric motor starting sound is heard. You can now feel like you are part of the tank crew as you decide which procedure to follow based on temperature conditions.

The front-mounted gearbox contains two Type 380 motors that can operate together or individually to produce forward/reverse running and pivot turning. Metal torsion bars and suspension arms combine with the wide tracks to smoothly absorb bumps and dips in the terrain and provide high maneuverability. In addition, realistic engine sounds accompany the tank as it starts up, drives, and stops to idle. Hull-mounted main gun can be elevated, depressed, and swung to the left and right.

Description

Widely recognized as the best modern day Main Battle Tank (MBT), Tamiya introduces the latest German Leopard 2 tank, the Leopard 2 A6, to the 1/16 scale R/C tank series. Tamiyas biggest R/C tank ever, its just like driving the real thing!

About the Leopard 2 A6

Used by more than 10 European nations, Germanys Leopard 2 tanks are a perfect balance of firepower, protection, mobility and availability. With the Leopard 2A5 regarded as the most powerful tank in the world with superior protection and fire power, the latest Leopard 2, the 2A6, features an even more powerful weapon system. The Leopard 2A5 featured replaceable wedge shaped armor on the turret, improved PERI-R 17 panoramic Commanders sight with thermal vision, spall liner on the turret interior for protection against splinters, all-electric gun control and stabilization system for easy maintenance and reduced noise, GPS navigation system, electro-pneumatic drivers hatch and a CCD camera mounted on the rear of tank for high-speed reversing. The Leopard 2A6 featured improved firepower including a 55 caliber 120mm smoothbore main gun utilizing kinetic energy LKE II ammunition for higher muzzle speed and lethality. The 2A6 has been employed by the German 403 tank battalion since March 2001, and is scheduled to replace all German 2A5 tanks by 2006. The use of the 2A6 continues to spread throughout Europe with the Netherlands, Spain and Greece adopting the 2A6 for their main battle tank. With continued improvements the 2A6 continues to set new standards as the worlds best MBT.

Evolved DMD unit

The T-07 DMD unit provides the 1/16 R/C Leopard 2 A6 with more features than any other Tamiya R/C tank. The T-07 unit matches engine sound (which has been digitally recorded from a real MB873-Ka501 turbo-charged diesel engine) with tank movements, and controls various lightning combinations activated easily with transmitter. Turret rotation, gun elevation and firing sounds also add to the realism of this model. The T-07 unit and 7.2V battery are mounted in the turret for easy and quick accessibility.

Synchronized light and sound effects

The R/C Leopard 2 A6 is equipped with a sound speaker unit mounted at the center of the hull. A xenon flash tube is used to make gun firing more convincing. When fired, main gun recoils and then goes back smoothly to its initial position thanks to a gearbox mounted in the turret. Of course, these actions are coupled with sound effects which have been digitally recorded from the actual tank.

High mobility transmission

The R/C Leopard is powered by 2 high-torque Type 540 motors. A specially designed gearbox allows smooth power transmission at both low and high speeds. This system accurately imitates the transmission of the actual tank. One motor controls forward/backward movement and the other motor allows the tank to turn and rotate. Suspension comes equipped with torsion bars that give this model high mobility.

Smooth turret and gun movement

In order to obtain smooth rotation, the turret ring has been equipped with 20 steel balls. The newly designed system for gun elevation and recoil effect features a servo for more realistic movements. While rotating turret with gun in lowered position, the gun automatically raises and goes back to its initial position to avoid the engine deck, like the actual tank.

7 lighting combinations

The R/C leopard 2 A6 features various workable lights such as headlights, tail lamps, brake lights, black-out lights and rotating light. Model features 7 lighting combinations, 4 for tank during combat operations and 3 during non-combat operations. Main gun and axial machinegun also flash when fired.

Metal parts for accuracy

Kit includes die-cast sprockets and lathe-turned aluminum gun barrel. The double-pin tracks, which are equipped with pads made out of rubber like the actual tank, come pre-assembled. In order to obtain an even more striking feel of realism, mesh of the baskets mounted on rear of turret, and grills on the engine compartment cooling fans have been reproduced with photo-etched parts.

The front-mounted gearbox contains two Type 380 motors that can operate together or individually to produce forward/reverse running and pivot turning. Metal torsion bars and suspension arms combine with the wide tracks to smoothly absorb bumps and dips in the terrain and provide high maneuverability. In addition, realistic engine sounds accompany the tank as it starts up, drives, and stops to idle. Hull-mounted main gun can be elevated, depressed, and swung to the left and right.
