HISTORY Given the nick name Tiger by the designer Ferdinand Porsche its official name was Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausfurrung
H or Panzer VI version H.
The philosophy for the design of the Tiger differed from itís predecessors in that it emphasised firepower and
armour at the expense of mobility. Other tanks had to balance mobility with protection and firepower.
The general design and layout were similar to the Panzer IV however the Tiger I weighed more than twice as
much due to itís substantially thicker armour, larger main gun and greater volume of fuel and ammunition storage,
larger engine, and more solid transmission and suspension. Consequentially due to these statistics it cost
considerably more to produce than the Panzer IV and was produced in far fewer numbers.
Interestingly the design meant it was too heavy for bridges so was designed so it could ford deep water

The fully featured Heng long Tank range is here.
Choose between a multitude of famous Tanks and the option of firing a 6mm BB shoot or infrared beams to knock out the enemy!
Heng Long tanks are designed to emulate the looks and functions of the full size and they also include great features such as;
Stunning sound affects. Onboard motor start-up and running sounds. This has a volume control to make it easily adjustable. (This is remotely operated from the controller and the Tank will not operate until the engine has been started by the controller)
Superb gun firing sound with great recoil moment (just like the full size)
Full active independent suspension, just like the full size
Real smoke effect. This Tank comes with an inbuilt smoke generator and can be switched on or off (looks just like a diesel engine running!)
Can hold up to 40 BB shoots (BB version only)
The BB gun can only be fired once the arming switch on the Tank has been activated. This is hidden under a cover so it canít be accidentally armed (BB version only)
Infrared firing so you can disable or knock out your enemy before they disable you (infrared version only)
The turrets have a turning radius of around 320 degrees and about 20 degrees rise. All controllable while on the move
High energy 2000NiHM battery and charger for long sorties with the enemy
Optional metal tracts available
Just add 8 x AA transmitter batteries and you are ready to take on the world!
