• Cutting-Edge Tank Makes Its 1/35 scale R/C Debut
The Leopard 2 was first produced in 1979 and is in service with the armies of Austria, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Spain with over 3000 produced. The Leopard 2A5 version employs cutting-edge armour technology, and is currently considered to be one of the top tanks in the world. Tamiya now presents a 1/35 scale R/C tank of the Leopard 2 A5, marking the 4th item on the 1/35 scale R/C Tank Series. This kit is a Full Option Set that includes gearbox, motors, transmitter and also receiver unit. While certain parts such as wheels and sprockets have been converted into R/C adapted parts, most exterior parts like the upper hull and turret are kept the same as in the Military Miniature static model Series Leopard 2 A5 (Item35242). Thus, the R/C Leopard retains the same level of detail and precision as its static counterpart.
• Forward/reverse movement, pivoting and more!
Apart from forward/reverse movement, the 1/35 R/C Leopard 2 A5 can do large-diameter turns, sharp-turns, pivoting, and turret rotation.
• High-Tech Style Realistically Portrayed
This kit features replications of the awesome Rheinmetal 120mm smoothbore gun, wedge-shaped cavalier armour on the front of turret, and other high-tech equipment. This model captures the sheer power of the state-of-the-art Leopard 2A5 Main Battle Tank.
