1/4 RC King Tiger tank – state of the art bang-bang

Share


Do you like radio control toys? Have you ever wanted to own a World War II German killing machine? Do you have £6,600 lying around? If the answer to these three questions is “yes”, then the 1/4 size RC King Tiger tank from Mark 1 Tanks is the perfect gadget for you.

It comes with two fully functioning treads powered by twin 500-watt, 24-volt engines and a pivoting turret with 2′ gun. No mention of whether or not you can blow up your neighbours shed with it but there is a realistic recoil action.

The beast is 6′ long and weighs a pretty hefty 250kg with enough torque to pull a car. It gives me a fantastic sense of pride that a Brit is responsible for such a wonderful example of crackpot lunacy and I sincerely hope that another fellow countryman is insensible enough to take one off his hands. It’d have to take someone even more insane to pay to import the thing.

Oh, and just for the record, this is the world’s largest RC tank.

  • Just for the records: the worlds largest r/c tank would the MAUS and could be ordered from a company in the USA that custom makes all metal radio controlled tanks: Big Tanks of America and they are on Facebook, too.
