The German Jagdpanther is widely regarded as one of the best, if not the best, tank destroyers of WWII, and Tamiya's 1/16 R/C assembly kit will enable fans to take command of this formidable AFV. With a total length of 605mm, this tank casts an imposing shadow and is fully-detailed as well. Housed in the sloped superstructure is the accurately reproduced L71 88mm gun, which can be moved and fired via a 4-channel transmitter. Realistic tank movement is made possible by the two gearboxes driving the caterpillar tracks, and both the gun barrel and tank react with lifelike recoil action when the main gun is fired. Furthermore, machine gun firing, main gun firing, and digitally-recorded engine sounds makes for a most exciting R/C tank experience.
The front-mounted gearbox contains two Type 380 motors that can operate together or individually to produce forward/reverse running and pivot turning. Metal torsion bars and suspension arms combine with the wide tracks to smoothly absorb bumps and dips in the terrain and provide high manoeuvrability. In addition, realistic engine sounds accompany the tank as it starts up, drives, and stops to idle. Hull-mounted main gun can be elevated, depressed, and swung to the left and right.
