    1/16 Scale China T-99A Battle Tank Upgrade Edition by Heng Long - RTR - HLG3899-001

    1/16 Scale China T-99A Battle Tank Professional Edition by Heng Long - RTR - HLG3899-002

    The Type 99 MBT is a Chinese third generation main battle tank. Combining modular composite armour and tandem-charge defeating ERA, 125mm smoothbore gun with ATGM-capability, high mobility, digital systems and optics, the Type 99 represents a shift towards rapid modernisation by the PLA. The tank entered People's Liberation Army (PLA) service in 2001. The People's Liberation Army Ground Force (PLAGF) is the sole operator of the Type 99. This Upgrade version features steel gears and plastic tracks for an economical balance between durability and weight. Heng Long has produced RC tanks for over 20 years, and their products offer an ideal starting point for new customers wanting to explore the world of RC tanks. All of Motion RC’s Heng Long 1/16 scale tanks utilize the latest TK6 MFCB for outstanding control, performance, playability, and upgrade potential!
    Durable Tracks

    Confidently conquer terrain with durable tracks that are easy to service. Professional Versions feature metal tracks.
    Independent Suspension and Steel Geared Gearbox

    Reliable steel geared gearboxes transfer power while independent suspension provide traction over rough surfaces.
    Omnidirectional Proportional Control

    The latest generation TK6 Multi-Function Control Board (MFCB ) provides smooth driving response and personalized configuration options.
    IR Battle Ready

    Engage in friendly infrared ("IR") combat with other TK6-equipped tanks, both inflicting hits upon and receiving hits from opponents! Sounds and action signal each hit, until the 5th hit disables the tank. After 10 seconds, the disabled tank restarts and can rejoin the fight!
    Airsoft BB Launch

    Safely fire 6mm plastic airsoft BBs at the included paper target at short ranges. *Take safety precautions and wear eye protection.
    Scale Detail

    The perfect balance of scale detail and practical RC Tanking, each Heng Long tank arrives factory painted and includes Cosmetic Accessory Parts to further enhance the tank's realism.
    Realistic Operation

    320 degree turret traverse, 30 degree cannon elevation, programmable track recoil, and four different sound sets put you in complete control.
    LED Lights

    LED lights indicate the tank's standby and active modes, and also flash when "hit" during IR Battles.
    Exhaust Effect

    Glycerin-based "exhaust effect" simulates engine exhaust for added realism.

    The convenience of "Ready to Run" (RTR) allows new players to join the world of RC Tanks with ease!

    In the past Alpha posted the official new tanks listings. What happen to Alpha he has been radio silent everywhere? Is he still with Motion RC?


    • #3
      Alpha hasn't posted anything since November.
      James said this morning on the live YouTube show that Alpha is busy with other projects.
      Who knows?

        I can attest to the fact that Alpha is alive and well...Just incredibly busy as all of us at Motion RC are at the moment. Lots and lots and lots of new product from surface to air!

          But no one is saying definitely if Alpha is still working for Motion r/c.

          A simple YES or NO question. Is Alpha still affiliated with Motion RC?


          • #6
            I'm the one that asked that question on the live show today and James confirmed that Alpha is indeed busy behind the scenes working with the new hires and upcoming new product. Motion is expanding and lots of stuff going on..
