With authentic period details, realistic sounds, and infrared "projectiles," these remote controlled tanks re-enact the famous armored clashes of World War II's Eastern Front. At 1:24 scale, each tank's authentic period details are clearly identifiable: the German PzKpfw IV Ausf. H is marked with the crossed-Y emblem of the German 16th Panzer Division, and its turrets and sides are protected by schürzen, intended to thwart anti-tank weapons. The Red Army's T-34/85 turret is painted with a white cross for easy air identification and features its characteristic external fuel tanks. Both tanks generate realistic sounds while they move on realistic treads and 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 a 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. (3 lbs.)
