This is a new upgraded version of the full metal late version of German RC tank -Tiger I. The Taigen RC tanks are of the highest quality and are brand new to the market. What sets them apart from other tanks is the high level of detail and the strong metal components like gearbox, drive wheels, turret, barel and many more. The next great thing apart from its looks is the brand new radio equipment. This deadly machine comes with 2.4GHz transmitter receiver kit featuring many improvements compared to the old crystal based systems like extended range, no interference from fellow enthusiasts and precision steering. From now on you can have epic battles with as many radio controlled tanks as you wish.

The next very cool feature is the sound on this machine, the sound generator has 2 channels and can play 2 sounds simultaneously - in short you will hear the gun firing over the soundtrack of the engine adding to the authenticity of the model.Taigen tanks are available in different configurations but the ones we sell are the highest configuration with every possible option and upgrade included. This beautifully made Tiger tank comes in a desert type brown camouflage finish and looks amazing. The attention to detail is stunning and not only is this a fully working model with sound effects, smoke and the ability to fire BBs, but it is sufficiently detailed to be used purely for display. Many of the components and features of this tank are made of metal, giving durability and a more realistic feel and appearance to your model.

We think the pictures speak for themselves! The pull ropes are made from real metal cable and have been carefully coloured to give a feel of authenticity. The caterpillar tracks are scaled down versions of what you would get on the real thing, fully metallic linkages that will form to the terrain and any obstacles in the tank's path. When you pick this tank up, everything about it says quality, for a start this is a faiirly hefty model, it feels robust, it feels right, you could say it's built like a tank!

So why not treat yourself to a piece of military history that's not only great to look at, but will give hours of fun as it growls and smokes its way around your garden or park, and where safe to do so can fire BBs at the target (included in the box) with a realistic recoiling action. RC tanks don't really come better than this!

The Tiger comes complete with a hand-painted camo design. Below are some images showing the plastic and metal components of the tank before it is painted.

    What a tank! It has everything great paint work, great sound card, recoil barrel & hull on a BB firing tank, steel gears, that's an extra £50! Put it in a wooden box call it a Torro Tank and charge another £150. Thanks Nitrotek what a scoop you have with this tank.
