This fantastic scale radio controlled replica from Taigen looks great and is feature packed. The highly detailed finish adds to the realism, the included commander figure who is fully painted and in uniform completes the model perfectly. The tank fires plastic bbs and is the upgraded version with a built in real smoke generator and sound effects. Realistic sound effects - motor start-up, engine, machine-gun and cannonball when it fires a BB. All functions of the RC tank are controlled from the included transmitter. The tank can go forward and backward at two different speeds and the real working tracks mean it can be rotated any way. The turret is also fully controllable and can be rotated as well as moving the gun up and down. The tank has working suspension for climbing over objects and up hills.
History: The real Tiger I was a German heavy tank used in World War II, produced from late 1942 as an answer to the challenge of facing the unexpectedly formidable Soviet armor encountered in the initial months of Operation Barbarossa. The Tiger I design gave the Wehrmacht its first main battle tank that was capable of using its most formidable piece of ordnance, the 88 mm gun, which had previously showed its convincing effectiveness against both aircraft and other tanks. The Tiger differed from earlier German tanks principally in its design philosophy. Its predecessors balanced mobility, protection, and firepower. The Tiger I represented a new German approach that emphasised firepower and armor at the expense of mobility.

Great RC tank at a great priceBy Scalawag April 18, 2014
I took delivery of this tank a couple of days ago (along with a couple of others) and I have not stopped using it and working on it since. I will start by saying I am new to RC Tanks, so this really is a novice first impression.
The finish is in my opinion superb. There are a few little paint spots dropped on it but they do not detract from the model and overall the custom paint job is excellent. The tank is the plastic version so does not have the weight to it that the metal versions have. It has plastic tracks, but mine came with metal gearbox, sprockets and idlers so is ready to be upgraded to metal tracks.
The tank works flawlessly, all the functions are as described. I have not timed it but it runs for a long time with the supplied battery which is the 2000mah NiMh type.
I have done a lot of 1/16 modelling in the past (I have a cabinet full of static figures and dioramas at home), and I am sure that over the coming months I will have hours and hours of fun detailing and upgrading this tank.
I would definitely recommend this product especially at the Jan sale price, and I will be using Nitrotek again in the future. Their customer service to date has been superb.
excelente, muy bien.[email protected] February 25, 2014By

Buen producto, mal acabadoBy CG October 07, 2013
El tanque es una pasada, y si tienes la suerte de que te llega enbien montado debe ser la leche. En mi caso llegó con uno de los motores de las orugas desconectado y los piñones no estaban atornillados al chasis, además la bomba de humo no ha llegado a funcionar nunca (al parecer funciona unas 2 horas antes de romperse como mucho). Al girar la torreta se enganchaba al llegar a los 90º (el agujero donde va insertada la torreta es ovalado y al llegar a ese punto separa de los dientes del motor) y varios tornillos venían flojos, como el de las tensoras que hacían que se salieran las cadenas. En definitiva, si no estas dispuesto a ensuciarte las manos y ajustar el tanque tú mismo, mejor no aventurarse con el...
