    1/16 Scale Russian JS-2 Heavy Tank Full Option from Tamiya - KIT - TAM56035


    Version Info: This tank is in "KIT" form and requires your own 4 Channel radio, receiver, ESC, charger and battery to run. (See Requires below for information).

    The Russian Heavy Tank JS-2 was developed to overthrow the German Tiger I. The JS-2 was put into production in the latter half of WWII in December 1943 and had a long, powerful 122mm gun as well as superior mobility. From August 1944, modifications, including the removal of the hatch from the frontal armor, were carried out to achieve greater defensive ability. The JS-2 produced in the Chelyabinsk Kirov factory (ChKZ) had a distinctive one-piece cast rounded front section. The JS-2 showed great strength in the frontlines but also in anti-tank battles, and it greatly contributed to the victory at the end of the Great War.

    The Tamiya 1/16 scale radio control replica faithfully reproduces all the intricate details and functions of the full size subject with the use of its various control systems to simulate recorded sounds and turret/gun movements. Whether you are building the JS-2 as a large static model or fighting battles with your friends the JS-2 will compliment anyone"s collection of Tamiya"s 1/16 R/C tanks.

    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.
    Lights and Sound


    Loaded with lights and realistic sound enhance the scale appeal.
    High Torque System


    Equipped with a factory-assembled independent twin gearbox and powered by two RS-380 motors and has a 36.98:1 gear ratio. The high torque system enables the heavy 4,100g tank to maneuver superbly.

    Jbaartz, what's the point of posting all these "Official" threads, and with no comments? Do you have some "official" capacity? What are you hoping to accomplish? There are plenty of existing threads on all these tanks in this forum, just look for them.
