The Panzerkampfwagen 753(r) were captured Soviet KV-1A heavy tanks in German service. The KV series were known for their extremely heavy armour protection and was completely immune to any tank-mounted weapon during the early part of World War II. Some of it's battles against the overwhelming Axis forces became legendary, as the German troops didn't expect to encounter anything similar to KV tanks prior to the invasion and until better guns were developed the only way the Germans can defeat a KV was with a point-blank shot to the rear.
Production of the KV series exceeded 5000 units, the most produced heavy tank in World War II. Even though the operational capabilities of KV tanks were severely hampered by their obsolete mechanical design (the transmission was based on a twenty year old Caterpillar design), and with more weight as additional armour was added (due to the increased effectiveness of German weapons), the KV tank was still a fearsome and formidable weapon through most of the World War II. The tanks overwhelming penetration resistance made it a decisive defensive and break-through tank.
Most German Pz. 753(r) were refitted with a high-velocity KwK 40 L/43 75-mm gun, the same gun used in the Panzer IV. The Pz. 753(r) outgunned the KV in most engagements as the KwK 40 L/43 provides at least 30% more penetration power over Soviet F-34 76mm tank gun.
This superb 1/24 scale Battle tank features proportional RC control and is fitted with an infrared cannon that allows you to battle with other tanks in the range, the model has a life counting system that will disable the tank after a certain number of hits, the model will also register hits in terms of physical movement and has a recoil action when the cannon is fired, the gun turret can be rotated 330 degrees and the gun elevated 30 degrees for that totally scale effect. In addition to this, the Pz. 753(r) has a built in sound module with engine, cannon and machine gun sounds!
This tank has plenty of power to to clear obstacles, travel up steep inclines and tackle rough ground easily. The tracks run on individually spring wheels and repairable rubber track just like the real tank. It is tough, very scale and a huge amount of fun, especially when you have a buddy to battle with
