Article number: 300056043 Product: R/C M551 Sheridan w/Option Kit

Tamiya is delighted to announce another new addition to our ever-expanding series of super-realistic 1/16 scale R/C armor, in the shape of the rather unique M551 Sheridan. The M551 was designed as airdrop capable armor with wading capabilities, a key concept as the U.S. took on the role of global policeman post-WWII. With an aluminum hull and rolled steel turret, it weighed just 15 tons, but had impressive firepower in the shape of the M81 152mm gun/launcher, which could fire standard rounds and MGM-51 Shillelagh missiles. The M551 was in service with active units from 1968 to 1996, and saw action in the jungles of Vietnam.
