Description

Details

The 1/16th scale Tiger II as well as known as "King Tiger" with posche turret is a top of the range RC tank from Taigen. It's a fully functional model with many upgrades over standard 1/16th tanks. Most noticeable is the fantastic hand painted body that makes every tank original. This is also the full metal upgrade version that comes with metal drive and idle wheels, tracks, gearbox, hook and metal hobby exhaust system which not only add to the realism but also also makes it more reliable.

This new updated version comes with 2.4GHz transmitter receiver kit. The radio system has many advantages compared to the old crystal based systems like extended range, no interference from fellow enthusiasts and precision steering. From now on you can have epic battles with as many radio controlled tanks as you wish without the need to switch crystals. The next very cool feature is the sound on this machine, the sound generator has 2 channels and can play 2 sounds simultaneously - in short you will hear the gun firing over the soundtrack of the engine and together with the smoke generator and the BB airsoft gun adds to the authenticity of the King Tiger radio controlled tank.

The Taigen King Tiger is almost 2 feet in length. The tank is fully functional with multi-directional driving, turning turret swivel and rising and lowering barrel. The gun has an amazing firing range of almost 50 feet and a capacity of 40 pellets. It powers out plastic 6mm BB's and has a powerful red warning light, next to the barrel, that illuminates before firing. The paint effects are carefully done by hand to give the appearance of age and of seeing battle which is finished off perfectly with the included tank commander who is fully painted and in uniform. This really is a high quality and superb looking model that when not being used makes an excellent display model.

History; Tiger II is the common name of a German heavy tank of the Second World War. The final official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen Tiger often shortened to Tiger B. The ordnance inventory designation was Sd.Kfz. 182. It is also known under the informal name Konigstiger (the German name for the "Bengal tiger"), often mistranslated as King Tiger or Royal Tiger by Allied soldiers. The design followed the same concept as the Tiger I, but was intended to be even more formidable. The Tiger II combined the thick armour of the Tiger I with the sloped armour used on the Panther medium tank. The tank weighed almost seventy metric tons, was protected by 100 to 180 mm (3.9 to 7.1 in) of armour to the front, and was armed with the long barrelled 8.8 cm Kampfwagenkanone 43 L/71 gun. The chassis was also the basis for the Jagdtiger turretless tank destroyer. The Tiger II was issued to heavy tank battalions of the Army and the Waffen-SS. It was first used in combat during the Normandy campaign on 11 July 1944; on the Eastern Front the first unit to be outfitted with Tiger IIs was s.H.Pz.Abt. 501 which by 1 September 1944 listed 25 Tiger IIs as operational.

Question:

"...It is also known under the informal name Konigstiger (the German name for the "Bengal tiger"), often mistranslated as King Tiger or Royal Tiger by Allied soldiers..." Not really, by Germans and their allies it was really called Royal or King Tiger (like the greatest and many Western allies admitted that back then was the most scary thing and nightmare on battlefield they could fight against...) Königstiger it is really Bengal tiger, but that's not how was the name of this tank written originaly. The name of this tank is : Königs tiger not Königstiger
