|【 The Russian Monster 】 Tamiya is proud to release the 1/16 scale R/C assembly kit of the Russian heavy tank KV-1 which terrified German forces during WWII. The dynamic form of the KV-1's angular, welded turret has been accurately reproduced, and accessories such as the tow cables and tool boxes highlight its superb exterior details. Many metal parts have also been incorporated with the chassis to ensure high durability. In addition to forward/reverse running and left/right turning, the tank also features realistic barrel and hull recoil actions when firing the main gun. The front machine gun also features muzzle flash effect and firing sounds, while both the headlight and taillight are controllable as well. The set conveniently includes a 4-channel transmitter, 7.2V battery, and a battery charger (Japan market only). Add the separately available Battle System and you can even have mock battles with other similarly equipped Tamiya R/C tanks.|
|【 Realistic Mobility 】 Rear-mounted pre-assembled gearbox features Type 380 motors for plenty of power. Metal parts such as the lower hull, suspension arms, and drive sprockets ensure durability. The suspension is just like that on an actual KV-1 and features metal torsion bars and pre-assembled resin tracks to absorb terrain undulations. In addition, the DMD Control Unit T-08 features a special low-speed setting which enables slow lumbering movements for even greater realism.|
|【 Main Gun Firing 】 During main gun firing, the barrel-mounted LED flashes, firing sound roars from the onboard speaker, and the turret recoil unit and drivetrain gearbox work in conjunction to produce realistic barrel and hull recoil movement.|
■Turning on/off the taillight is also controllable via transmitter input. It also works as a brake light.
|【 About the KV-1 】 The KV-1 was an unpleasant surprise for the fearless German Army which was advancing into Russia in the summer of 1941. The German Panzer III and IV tanks were ineffective against the 75mm thick armor of the KV-1. German soldiers called the KV-1 tank “Monster” as a mark of respect after encountering it in 1941. The KV-1 fought desperately as one of the Russian’s main heavy tanks together with the T-34 until the mid-WWII. Over 4,000 KV-1 were produced from 1939 until 1943, and this 1940 variant was armed with a 39 caliber F-32 76.2mm main gun.|
