Last year, Tamiya released the amazing Tiger I Early Production Full-Option Complete Kit as a culmination of decades of military model and R/C experience. This year, it is the M4 Sherman that rolls out of Tamiya's R/C Tank factory. Tamiya's all new M4 Sherman 105mm Howitzer tank has been designed for maximum ease-of-use and for control by either a 2-channel or 4-channel R/C system.

Since Tamiya is behind this R/C M4 Sherman, authenticity in scale, body detailing, and working suspension goes without saying. Acoustic authenticity is also high on the score sheet, through the digitally recorded sounds of a real Continental R975-C4 9-cylinder engine, which roars from the bowls of the tank as it runs. And speaking of the running, you will be able to recreate all the speed and nimbleness of the full-sized M4 Sherman with state-of-the-art R/C technology.

Finally, with the addition of "Battle System" infrared tank scoring system, you can reenact one of the most classic military clashes of all time-Tiger vs. Sherman. For more on the history of the M4 Sherman, click here. *(Images show model after painting and assembly.)
