Ground Shipping Items

Some RC Planet's products can only be transported under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only, and cannot be shipped outside of the US. These products include:

If you would like to know more about FedEx and the safety precautions taken when transporting Lithium Batteries, please refer to the FedEx guidelines.

International Shipments: Lithium Batteries are regulated as HAZMAT (Hazardous Material) products and can be dangerous if not packaged properly for transportation. In smaller quantities, Lithium Batteries can be shipped via DHL without applying a HAZMAT fee. If you'd like to ship more than 2 Lithium Batteries, a HAZMAT fee will be applied for transportation. Please note that DHL only allows transportation of HAZMAT / Dangerous Goods to specific countries, some of which have limited service areas.

The US Postal Service prohibits international mailing of Lithium Batteries, as well as electronic devices that contain Lithium Batteries. These new regulations also prohibit shipments to or from Army, Fleet, and Diplomatic Post Offices.

Please note that the US Postal Service has a limit of three batteries per shipment; you can refer to the Domestic Mail Manual for further information.

Overview

This is the 1/16 scale Tamiya German Leopard 2 A6 Tank Kit. Widely recognized as the best modern day Main Battle Tank (MBT), Tamiya introduces the Leopard 2 A6. Tamiya's biggest R/C tank ever, it's just like driving the real thing!

Features:
  • DMD unit T-07 provides action movement, lighting and sound effects
  • High-volume speaker provides sounds synchronized with every movement
  • Machined aluminum gun barrel with xenon flash tube, firing sound recorded from full-size 120mm gun of the real tank
  • Action movement includes:
  • Rotating turret; 360° in 9 seconds-same as the real tank
  • Gun elevation: maximum elevation 20°, maximum depression 9°, gun automatically reloads and returns to original firing position, recoil action after firing main gun
  • Engine start-up, shut down, acceleration, discharge and more digitally recorded from real tank
  • Two lighting modes combat and non-combat (same as the real tank) for a total of 7 lighting combinations
  • Tracks assembled with metal pins, die-cast connectors and drive sprockets
  • Synthetic rubber pads attached to each track
  • Torsion bar suspension
  • Powered by two 540 size motors, one motor controls forward/reverse, the other motor controls turning
The T-07 DMD unit provides the Leopard 2 A6 with more features than any other Tamiya R/C tank. The T-07 unit matches engine sound (which has been digitally recorded from a real MB873-Ka501 turbo-charged diesel engine) with tank movements, and controls various lightning combinations activated easily with transmitter. Turret rotation, gun elevation and firing sounds also add to the realism of this model. The T-07 unit and 7.2V battery are mounted in the turret for easy and quick accessibility.

The Tamiya Leopard 2 A6 is equipped with a sound speaker unit mounted at the center of the hull and a xenon flash tube is used to make gun firing more convincing. When fired, the main gun recoils and then goes back smoothly to its initial position thanks to a gearbox mounted in the turret. Of course, these actions are coupled with sound effects which have been digitally recorded from the actual tank.

The Leopard is powered by 2 high-torque Type 540 motors. A specially designed gearbox allows smooth power transmission at both low and high speeds. This system accurately imitates the transmission of the actual tank. One motor controls forward/backward movement and the other motor allows the tank to turn and rotate.

Its suspension comes equipped with torsion bars that give this modeligh mobility. Smooth turret and gun movement In order to obtain smooth rotation, the turret ring has been equipped with 20 steel balls. The newly designed system for gun elevation and recoil effect features a servo for more realistic movements. While rotating turret with gun in lowered position, the gun automatically raises and goes back to its initial position to avoid the engine deck, like the actual tank.

The Tamiya Leopard 2 A6 features various workable lights such as headlights, tail lamps, brake lights, black-out lights and rotating light. This modeleatures 7 lighting combinations, 4 for tank during combat operations and 3 during non-combat operations. Main gun and axial machinegun also flash when fired.

The double-pin tracks, which are equipped with pads made out of rubber like the actual tank, come pre-assembled. In order to obtain an even more striking feel of realism, mesh of the baskets mounted on rear of turret, and grills on the engine compartment cooling fans have been reproduced with photo-etched parts.

The Leopard 2 A6 Used by more than 10 European nations, Germany's Leopard 2 tanks were a perfect balance of firepower, protection, mobility and availability. With the Leopard 2A5 regarded as the most powerful tank in the world with superior protection and fire power, the latest Leopard 2, the 2A6, features an even more powerful weapon system.

The 2A6 has been employed by the German 403 tank battalion since March 2001, and is scheduled to replace all German 2A5 tanks by 2006. The use of the 2A6 continues to spread throughout Europe with the Netherlands, Spain and Greece adopting the 2A6 for their main battle tank. With continued improvements the 2A6 continues to set new standards as the world's best MBT.
