Tamiya s peerless 1/16 R/C Tank products are the ultimate in realistic indulgence, and with theGerman Tiger I and King Tiger already released, it is only natural that we now add the famousPanther Type G to the lineup. Tamiya staff even visited the renowned collection of the Museedes Blindes in Saumur, France in order to create the most accurate Panther sounds possible.Pit it against the previously released US Sherman and Pershing tanks on your own mockbattlefield.
Front-mounted pre-assembled gearbox contains two type 380 motors to provide reliable all-terrain mobility. Dual motors can operate together or individually to replicate realistic tank movement. Metal torsion bars and suspension arms combine with wide tracks to realize smooth running and excellent maneuverability.
Die-Cast Metal Parts
For heightened reliability and realism, metal parts have been used for suspension parts, drive sprockets and idler wheels.
Durable resin wide tread tracks are pre-assembled for maximum convenience. Metal shafts are used to connect track links for heightened strength and to create powerful movement. Adjust track tension by tightening or loosening tension adjustment screws.
Turret can be rotated 360 degrees and main gun can be moved between 12 degree elevation and 10 degree declination accompanied by mechanical sounds. You can control moving speed and position via transmitter stick.
Shaped Aluminum Gun Barrel
High precision aluminum gun barrel does not require shaping or sanding for removing mold separation lines. This quality 75mm gun heightens overall looks of the tank. Forward/reverse, turning and pivot turning can be controlled at every speed. The engine sound is linked with speed, so if you increase the throttle, the engine sound changes from idling to full throttle.
Realistic sounds accompany every movement such as turret rotation and gun elevation. The engine sounds were digitally recorded at the Saumur Tank Museum in France from a very rare working Maybach V12 tank engine. Speaker unit in the rear produces realistic and awesome engine running sounds and 2 types of engine starting sounds (electric starter and crank starter).
When firing main gun, muzzle flashes, speaker roars and recoil gearbox retracts gun barrel, then slowly returns it to standard position. In addition to this action, the hull itself recoils by means of gearbox movement. Machine gun is also linked with firing sound and LED muzzle flash.
