Description

Things just got realer. Starting with the 1/16 R/C sensation of the Tiger I Early Production, and then with the M4 Sherman 105mm Howitzer, Tamiya continues to develop its 1/16 R/C Tank Series. The third full-option kit to make its appearance is the U.S. Medium Tank M26 Pershing that fought during the end of WWII and throughout the Korean War. Tamiya keeps increasing its knowledge about R/C tanks and improving the realism of their movement and sound to make their appearance even more striking.

Two-channel or four-channel RC unit is necessary to operate this kit. 7.2V Tamiya Racing Pack (or equivalent) and charger are also required.
