Heavy tank Tiger II, or "Königstiger" (in fact it is a Bengali tiger, but he has taken on a literal translation of the King Tiger, King Tiger) - officially Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausf. B was a strikingly modernized follower of the legendary Tiger. At first glance he differed in consistently applying a sloping armor on the bulwark and the tower, armed with a high performance cannon of 88 mm caliber. Brands around the name also refer to the tower - although the tank was designed and manufactured by Henschel and the tower was part of Krupp, the first serial version of the tower is commonly referred to as the "Porsche" tower, and later as the "Henschel" tower. The tanks entered service in the spring of 1944 with an unsuccessful counter-offensive on the eastern front at Sandomera, with a large share in the offensive in the Ardennes, and in other vain attempts to delay the inevitable end of the Third Reich. Tigers II, however, were the most powerful tanks II. World War II, their most serious rivals were the lack of fuel, swamps and moving sands. Only the Soviet IS-2 and perhaps the American M-26 Pershing could be launched into the battle until the very end of the war. Our kit is an initial version of the tank with the "Porsche" tower.
Tiger II was a German heavy tank with a Tiger-derived chassis with a body and a tower welded from sloping steel armor plates. Powered by the 700 hp Maybach HL230 gasoline engine. The armament of the tank consisted of a 88 mm anti-tank cannon with a long, high-mist PaK 43 and two 7.92 mm MG 34 machine guns (one in the swingarm on the right side of the hull, the other in a tower coupled with a cannon).

And this legend now goes to our model battlefield as a fully functional model at 1:16 scale!
The Tiger II electric-powered RC model faithfully performs most of the actual tank functions. It is equipped with a realistic chassis with functional belts, drive, travel and tension wheels that allow for both forward and reverse travel, left and right turns forwards and backwards. There is a pure tank-like "spin-off" - rotation on the spot with counter-motion of the belts. Remote control of the turn of the tower (at 320o) and the cannon (trigger and lifting barrel) is controlled remotely. Not only that - the model really shoots! Its cannon is not just an imitation but it's an air-soft air gun and automatic charging a 6 mm plastic BB ball. "Ammo" is stored in a stack in the tower; thanks to the system of giving the projectiles additional rotation, which helps to limit the impact of the Earth's gravity on the missile's track, cannons are up to 25 m. For shooting training the model is supplied with a paper target with a stand.
Simulation of the actual tank does not end there, the audio module (with adjustable volume) imitates the sound of the engine, machine gun and cannon shooting. The shot from the cannon can be accompanied by a backlash simulation of the "backward" model. Realism of "expression" further increases the smoke generator, which complements the sense of smell.
To control the model is a transmitter with two cross controllers (left controls tower rotation, cannon and gun shooting, right controls the forward, reverse, and side movements of the tank). The buttons on the transmitter are used to initiate the engine start simulation, machine gun sound imitation, cannon gun sound, switch on the smoke generator and adjust the volume of the sound effects of the model. The RC model controlling model operates in the 2.4GHz band, allowing simultaneous operation of multiple tanks at the same time.
The transmitter is powered by six AA batteries or batteries (not included), powered by a 7.4V 1800 mAh lithium-ion two-cell kit supplied with the model along with a mains charger.
The model is designed to ride in the room, never drive it in water, puddles, mud, sand, high grass, public roads and other places (eg. car park) with car traffic. Unsuitable surfaces are also high "furry" rugs.
The kit contains: a ready-to-go model, maker accessories, a sticker sticker, a transmitter, a 7.4V Li-ion battery, 1 BB BB bin, a mains charger, 1 vial of an aerosol mix for a smoke generator, a paper towel with a stand.
Handling the air-soft weapon tank (Category D firearm in accordance with Act No. 119/2002 Coll. On firearms and ammunition) requires special caution and strict adherence to all principles for its use.
