The Panzer III was intended as the main battle tank for Germany during World War 2, however upon encountering Russian tanks like the KV-1 and T-34, it was quickly sidelined to light tank duties when heavier German armour became available.
Armed with a 50mm main gun, the Panzer III saw action in France, the Russian Front and North Africa and this model represents a typical Panzer III in operation during the invasion of France or on the Eastern Front.
This 1/16 scale R/C model has an operating air-soft main gun, authentic engine sound, machine gun sound and main armament gun sound (complete with simulated recoil).
The scale independent suspension system makes short work of difficult terrain and it will manage steep hills without any problem.
The tank's turret rotates 360 degrees, and the barrel can move 60 degrees. Steering is managed just like the full size and within minutes you will be operating this fantastic model.
The additional accessories pack includes decals and other fittings as well as a highly detailed tank commander, all of which adds to the scale appearance of this model.
Without doubt this is one of the best R/C tanks you will buy for yourself or as a gift and at this price its great value too.

The tank looks nice indeed, all proportions are corect, it fires balls, it moves/turns, the turret ratates smoothly, gun depresion is working acceptable. One small inconveninece, the moving/turning is quit fast, no speed increasing smoothly (practically no throttle, just one speed), but I can live with that on this price. The only issue with my model is that have no sounds, as clearly described in specs and on features. For that I have to resend it back on my own costs (which unacceptable since is not my fault).
