Description

We've all dreamt of commanding our very own tank. Unfortunately, they're incredibly cumbersome, awkward to park and, unless your name's P Diddy or Colin Powell, rather OTT in the style stakes.

That's where these amazing little R/C vehicles come in. Controlled via a nifty handheld unit, these camouflage-clad micro menaces are the perfect desktop fighting machines.

Featuring independently rotating turrets and genuine go-anywhere caterpillar tracks, Battling Micro Tanks are serious weapons of mass distraction.

Firing animation With realistic machine gun and cannon sound FX, they are the closest you get to full-on battle without getting sand in your eyes. Battling Micro Tanks even recoil impressively each time you hit the "FIRE" button.

Micro Battle Tanks You can choose from three pre-programmed games (see below) or battle it out head to head against an opponent. Each tank will take up to 6 direct hits before it is then captured - and therefore controlled by your opponent. Best of all, Battling Micro Tanks operate on three different frequencies (set by a switch on the grenade-shaped controller), so you can slug it out with fellow feudalists and seek and destroy the enemy via the Micro Tanks' infra-red targeting system. Conducting desktop devastation has never been such fun.

Tank in hand What's more, Micro Tanks are small enough to quickly hide in a drawer or pocket should the boss come sniffing around, and look suitably mean sitting atop a PC. These pocket-sized powerhouses are the ultimate war machines for desktop desert rats everywhere. Ready, aim, FIRE!

    Power-Save Mode
    If you don't play with your tank for 4 minutes it will turn its turret to the right and enter Standby Mode. To regain control, either manually move the turret to the central position, or reset the tank (above).

    Pre-programmed Games:
    1. Normal Batle - After assigning a channel you're ready to do battle! Use the direction controls to guide your tank around your chosen battle arena, and press the FIRE button to activate your cannon. If you score a hit, your opponent's turret will turn right and it will spin clockwise or run away. Each tank can take up to 6 such direct hits from an opponent - after this, the tank will spin for 10 seconds, and move its turret from left to right 3 times signifying surrender. The tank will be now under the opponents control! You'll need to reset your tank (see above) to regain control.
    2. Auto-Fighting - Press and hold the GAME button for 3 seconds - it will beep once you are in "game selection" mode. Press the RIGHT button to enter "Auto Fighting" mode. The tank will now turn move around (turning left/right, forwards/backwards) to find the enemy tank. When it senses the enemy tank's infra-red signal it will dtop and fire its cannon. The same rules of being hit apply as in "Normal Battle", above. The tanks will automatically return to "Normal Battle" mode after 10 minutes - or to leave "Auto Fighting" mode you can press and hold the "GAME" key for 3 seconds.
    3. Target Practice - Press and hold the GAME button for 3 seconds - it will beep once you are in "game selection" mode. Press the FORWARD button to enter "Target Practice" mode. The tank will now move forward, and the direction keys on the controller will be disabled. The player must now aim the controller at the tank and press "FIRE" - if you score a hit, the tank will spin round and move off in a new direction. After 6 hits it will jump back to "Normal Battle" mode and be in your control. If the tank has not been hit for 4 minutes it will return to "Normal Battle" mode and you will need to reset both the controler and the tank to take control.
    4. Movement Programming - Press and hold the GAME button for 3 seconds - it will beep once you are in "game selection" mode. Press the LEFT button to enter "Movement Programming" mode. You can now input up to 10 sets of movements, after which the tank will then execute these movements. After these movements are complete you can then store more movements.
