Tank-based warfare has always been a scary business. Not only do these armour-plated behemoths pulverise everything in their path, they're also awkward to drive and impossible to park. On top of this, commanding a tank usually involves joining the military - a scenario that invariably involves getting shot at. A lot. And yet, despite all of the above, most of us have, at some point, fantasised about getting behind the complex controls of one of these turret-swivelling, caterpillar-clad colossuses, especially a World War II-style model.
Well now you can do exactly that without even leaving your desk, because pocket-sized Tanks are back, and this time they're better than ever. Based on genuine Russian, German and US WWII tanks, these all-new infrared RC vehicles boast several new features. So now you'll be able to fight them on the desktop, fight them on the floor and never surrender like never before!
Each diminutive but detailed tank boasts realistic go-anywhere caterpillar tracks, an LED damage indicator, kickback shooting action and supreme manoeuvrability. Best of all, a direct hit causes enemy tanks to flash and spin a full 360°. Keep alert because four hits will cause the tank to disable completely. Thankfully this war isn't real, so you can either get back to work or reset your tank for another thrilling confrontation.
With up to 4 different frequencies you can enjoy exciting multi-front battles and, depending on your vehicle, assume the role of the WWII commander of your choice: Patton, Rommel, Zhukov, Monty - whoever swivels your turret! The included Battle Field provides an ideal surface for your skirmishes.
Battle Tanks are controlled via a nifty handset that also serves as a charging unit and display stand. Handy, because as well as being all-spinning, all- flashing, all-rolling desktop battlers, these titchy tanks are realistic enough to display on a shelf or desk. In fact, you'll feel like awarding yourself a medal just for ordering one. So come on, you 'orrible little 'erberts. Your country needs you!
