With authentic period details, realistic sounds, and infrared "projectiles," these remote controlled tanks re-enact the famous armored clashes of World War II. At 1:24 scale, each tank's weathering, battle damage, and authentic period details are clearly identifiable including the zimmerit coating on the German Tiger I, meant to thwart magnetic anti-tank mines, and the shell mark on the U.S. Army M4A3 Sherman. Both tanks generate realistic sounds while they move on realistic treads with suspension. Each is fitted with a cannon that fires an infrared beam 25' away at a sensor on each tank. The tanks generate an explosion sound and vibrate to indicate they have been hit; five hits results in victory, which shuts the tank down. From up to 60' away, the remote control enables you to depress the barrel by 3º for shots while in defilade, raise it by 17º, and move the turret 330º, in addition to forward, backward, left, and right turns. Includes a practice target. Each tank requires one 9-volt battery, six AA batteries, and two AAA batteries. For Ages 14 and up. (2 lbs.)
