Tamiya 48213 1/35 RC JGSDF Type 10 Tank w/2.4GHz Control Unit
About the model
The Type 10 tank, commissioned in 2010, is the latest generation of tank used by the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF). It features a new Japanese-made 120mm main gun, in addition to modular armor on the turret and hull to give the tank impressive defensive reliability. The small and compact tank features excellent maneuverability, while it is also compatible with the modern C4I network system. Deployment to individual units commenced in 2012, and at present the vehicle is largely being used for educational purposes at the JGSDF's Fuji School. It is seen as a natural replacement for the long-serving Type 74 tank. The Tamiya model comes in 1/35 scale and it was first released as a static display model. This version is radio controlled operated using 2.4Ghz radio technology.
