The Taigen M26 Pershing is almost 2 feet in length. The tank is fully functional with multi-directional driving, 320 degrees turret swivel and rising and lowering barrel. The gun has an amazing range of almost 50 feet and a capacity of 40 pellets. It powers out plastic 6mm BB's and has a powerful red warning light, next to the barrel, that illuminates before firing. The paint effects are carefully done by hand to give the appearance of age and of seeing battle which is finished off perfectly with the included tank commander who is fully painted and in uniform. This really is a high quality and superb looking model that when not being used makes an excellent display model.
This tank comes with 2.4GHz transmitter receiver kit. The radio system has many advantages 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.
History; The M26 Pershing was introduced in the final stages of WWII as the successor to the M4 Sherman. Featuring a powerful 50 caliber 90mm gun with a range of 1,400m, the Pershing was designed to take on the powerful German Tiger and Panther tanks. The Pershing boasted not only assault power but also excellent mobility. Pershing tanks were also deployed to Korea at the outbreak of war in June 1950, and overwhelmed the rival T34/85 Soviet built tanks of the North Korean and Chinese armies.

Fantastic Tank and PaintBy madmonk October 01, 2013
The detail on this tank is amazing and the excellent hand painted finish plus weathering, just adds to the realism.
This tank is also fitted with the metal tracks, sprockets and gearboxes so no need to worry about reliability.
There are quite a few detail parts to fit, when you unpack this tank and I used a small amount of super glue on some of them, just so they don't get lost.
A big thank you to Nitrotech, especially Steve, Gordon and Guy who deserve a rise for their excellent customer service
