    This large-scale, Big Tank Series R/C model assembly kit recreates the formidable modern U.S. Main Battle Tank M1A2 Abrams.

    The Abrams main battle tank has been around since the early 1980s. It has undergone constant upgrades to ensure that it stays at the cutting edge of military technology. M1A2s were introduced in 1992, developed to be chock-full of front-line technology and bring the M1 into the digital age. They featured depleted uranium armor, a modified commander’s cupola, Intravehicular Information System (IVIS), Commander's Independent Thermal Viewer (CITV) turret and a new style vision block, and much more! M1A2’s played a significant role in Operation Iraqi Freedom, being deployed by land forces as they moved toward Baghdad in 2003.

    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.

    Realistic Firing Action


    Main gun firing action is one of the most impressive features of this model. When firing, muzzle flashes, speaker roars and recoil gearbox retracts gun barrel, then slowly returns it to standard position.
    340 Degree Turret Rotation


    The turret can be rotated approximately 340 degrees. The gun barrel can be controlled within a 20 degree range. The moving speed can be controlled by transmitter stick.
    Independent Suspension


    Independent suspension is damped by torsion bar springs, just like the full size. Combined with pre-assembled track, they provide smooth, exciting and realistic maneuverability, even on rough terrain.
    Exceptional Realism


    Full of realistic detail and scale realism from top to bottom.
    Easy Access


    Access to the control unit is simple and easy.
    Lights and Sound


    The light and sound package adds that next level of scale appeal.
    FEATURES:
    • 1/16 scale R/C model assembly kit. Length: 615mm, width: 231mm, height: 190mm.
    • Expertly recreated angular Abrams form includes depictions of anti-slip surface textures
    • The chassis is powered by a gearbox with 540-size motors and features metal parts such as lower hull, suspension arms, drive sprockets and more, for excellent durability Aluminum gun barrel included
    • Utilizes traverse and elevation/depression movement, actuated by a servo and Type 130 motor Multi-Function Unit is made up of turret and vehicle control units. It allows control of various movements via separately sold transmitter
    • Functions include turret rotation and gun elevation. It also ensures that a range of realistic sound and light effects (headlights, taillights, barrel flash) are paired with model actions
    • Gun barrel control system can train the main gun in a single direction, which it remains pointed in even as the tank moves or climbs, and the turret rotates
    • The included dual speaker offers highly realistic sounds Durable resin pre-assembled tracks feature metal pins and connectors
    • Compatible with the Battle System (Item 53447) for fun and interactive battles with friends!
    Some of the information is incorrect. Such as the turret rotation in not 340 it is 360. Also this tank does not use 380 motors it uses two 500 series motors and the gearbox is rear mounted not front mounted.

    Too get the best overall experience with this tank I highly recommend a TX with dual rates. Otherwise this tank can be a handful to drive effectively. It is not at all like driving a HL Abrams. To see one in action driving over tough obstacles see my Instagram @ fsttanks
