This final variant of the German "War Horse" the Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf.J. which served throughout the whole of WWII is now released as a 1/16 scale radio control assembly kit tank. Through the realistic reproduction of the tanks hull and the 7.5cm KwK 40 L48 main gun, the style of the Panzer IV can be easily seen. The hull is comprised of various metal parts guaranteeing chassis integrity. The underside is reproduced just like that of an actual tank using a metal plate. The DMD control unit allows easy control over forward/reverse and left/right turning actions including turret rotation and gun elevation. The gun firing action is accompanied with by realistic gun barrel and hull recoil actions as well as muzzle flash and firing sound effects. Furthermore the authentic engine sounds were digitally recorded at the Panzer Museum Munster in Germany from a very rare working Maybach V12 tank engine.
The front-mounted gearbox contains two Type 380 motors that can operate together or individually to produce forward/reverse running and pivot turning. Metal torsion bars and suspension arms combine with the wide tracks to smoothly absorb bumps and dips in the terrain and provide high maneuverability. In addition, realistic engine sounds accompany the tank as it starts up, drives, and stops to idle. Hull-mounted main gun can be elevated, depressed, and swung to the left and right.
