    The M4 Sherman, officially Medium Tank, M4, was the most widely used medium tank by the United States and Western Allies in World War II. The M4 Sherman proved to be reliable, relatively cheap to produce, and available in great numbers. It was also the basis of several successful tank destroyers, such as the M10, 17pdr SP Achilles and M36. The official designation of this specific model type is "M4A3(76)W HVSS", but it is most often referred to as the M4A3E8 or "Easy Eight". This variant is visually distinguished by its 76mm M1A2 cannon and its "duckbill" track extensions. The Easy Eight served in WW2, the Korean War, and even into the early stages of the Vietnam War.

    Faithfully recreated in 1/16 scale, Torro continues to grow its reputation as a producer of high quality, high functioning RC tanks. This Pro Edition of the M4A3 Sherman features more than 70% metal part construction, a 360 degree rotating turret, a realistic torsion bar suspension, and a barrel recoil and muzzle flash effect that fires in sync with the IR (infrared) battle system.

    This version is delivered as RTR (Ready to Run), meaning it is fully functional out of the box.

    All Metal Track System

    All of Torro's "Pro-Edition" tanks feature full metal drive systems. Single track links are connected with steel pins, propelled by metal drive sprockets and riding over metal road wheels and idler. Confidently conquer terrain with these durable metal tracks!
    Exhaust Effect

    Enjoy the added scale realism that an exhaust provides.
    Heavy Metal Castings

    Hoist hooks, hatches and even simulated "welds" are reproduced in cast metal for unsurpassed scale realism.
    IR Battle Ready

    Engage in friendly infrared ("IR") combat with other tanks using Torro's proprietary IR Battle System, 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!
    Onboard Charging

    Torro's convenient onboard charging system eliminates the hassle of removing batteries after every driving session. Safely charge the onboard NiMH battery by plugging the included charger's plug into the tank's concealed charge port.
    Superb Scale Fidelity

    Molded details, metal cast parts, brass photo-etched parts, and functional elements such as opening hatches all elevate this RC model to the next level, making it a perfect display piece when it's not powering through the battlefield outside.
    360 Degree Turret

    Fully rotate the metal turret 360 degrees, and move the all-metal barrel up and down to train on your target. Torro's integrated drive electronics gives you complete proportional control to translate your precise inputs to all axe of movement. Drive, turn, traverse, train, and fire!
