The Tamiya R/C US M551 Sheridan With Option Model Tank Kit is the latest addition to the series of radio controlled tanks from Tamiya.

This massive Tamiya R/C replica recreates the shape of the rather unique M551 Sheridan in 1/16 scale. The M551 was designed as airdrop capable armor with wading capabilities, a key concept as the U.S. took on the role of global policeman post-WWII. With an aluminum hull and rolled steel turret, it weighed just 15 tons, but had impressive firepower in the shape of the M81 152mm gun/launcher, which could fire standard rounds and MGM-51 Shillelagh missiles. The M551 was in service with active units from 1968 to 1996 and saw action in the jungles of Vietnam. 

FEATURES:

  • 1/16 scale R/C model assembly kit. Length: 408mm, width: 177mm, height: 186mm.
  • Die cast components for suspension arms, sprocket wheels, idler arms and more offer excellent durability. 
  • Utilizes an aluminum gun barrel for superb accuracy. 
  • Offers a full range of movement: forward and reverse, a variety of turns, turret rotation and gun elevation.
  • Suspension features a coil spring for each of the 10 suspension arms, giving the model excellent mobility. 
  • Firing of the main gun is accompanied by an LED flash, realistic recoil, and vehicle kickback.
  • Machine gun also produces LED flashes when fired. 
  • Authentic engine and firing sounds were recorded from a full-size vehicle and are coordinated with model actions. A large speaker in the model ensures rich sounds. 
  • Turret upper section is secured by magnets, allowing hassle-free access to the electronics within. 
  • A plethora of lights are recreated, including the turret front searchlight. They can be operated via transmitter. 
  • Assembled link type tracks have elastomer recreations of the rubber pads for an authentic look.
