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.
Assembled link type tracks have elastomer recreations of the rubber pads for an authentic look. Requires: 4-channel transmitter with self-neutral function, 7.2-volt Ni-Cd or Ni-MH battery pack & compatible charger, transmitter batteries and Tamiya model paint. Tamiya ATTACK 2.4GHZ RADIO SYSTEM recommended for complete compatibility with included Multi-Function Unit control system. Item 7255252
