Russia's Tiger Hunter
Tamiya is pleased to announce a 1/16 scale R/C assembly kit of the Russian Heavy Tank JS-2. This highly accurate model captures the appearance of the JS-2 perfectly, with the powerful 122mm gun, distinctive sloped frontal armor and details such as the rear fuel tank and storage boxes. The chassis features numerous metal parts to ensure that the weightiness of the JS-2 is authentically replicated. The Full Operation Set (Item 56034, Japan market only) conveniently includes a 4-channel transmitter to remotely control the model's sounds, lights and movement, a 7.2V battery, and a battery charger. 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 JS-2 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
As the aluminum 122mm main gun fires, the barrel-mounted LED flashes, a 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.

■The gun barrel offers 20 degrees of elevation and 3 degrees of depression. Push control stick 2 forward/rearwards to move the gun.

■The turret features full 360-degree rotation. Push control stick 1 to the left/right for rotation. Rotating speed varies according to stick movement.

■The 7.62mm machine gun mounted on the front right of the hull emits intermittent firing noises and lights up simultaneously.

■Headlight on the front left of the hull can be turned on and extinguished using transmitter controls.

■Two rear-mounted pre-assembled gearboxes fitted with Type 380 motors provide ample power for impressive performance.

■DMD Control Unit T-08 controls various movements of the tank. DMD Multi Function Unit MF-06 provides a range of realistic sound and light effects.

■Centrally-mounted 60mm speaker unit features bass reflex system with metal baffles for deep, rich sounds.

■Full Operation Set (Item 56029, Japan Market Only) conveniently includes 4-Channel transmitter, 7.2V Battery, and Battery Charger.

About the JS-2
The Russian Heavy Tank JS-2, built to destroy the German Tiger I and Panther, could boast of taking its initials from the then-Premier of the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin. It possessed a 122mm main gun and superior armor of up to 120mm thickness without sacrificing its excellent mobility, and production began in December 1943. From August 1944, the hatch on the front glacis was deleted, which greatly improved its frontal protection. These improved versions with distinctive cast hull were produced by the Chelyabinsk Kirov Factory (ChKZ) and went on to become a major part of the Russian offensive toward the end of the war.
