Japan Ground Self Defense Force. Brand New in Shrink Wrap. Out of my own collection Im not a dealer. This is the newest kit release in the 1/16 R/C tank series.It recreates the Japanese Type 10 Tank, which is also available as a 1/35 scale model kit. The Type 10, of course, is the high-tech modern addition to the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF) and comes loaded with state-of-the-art features such as a newly designed 120mm smooth-bore main gun, and modular armor. It was built to a relatively small and lightweight design for suitability of use in the mountainous Japanese archipelago and offers excellent speed and maneuverability. Perhaps most importantly, it was also designed to be compatible with the modern C4I communications network system. Deployment started in 2012 and continues apace as the Type 10 looks set to be a key element of Japanese ground defense armor. Chassis, suspension arms, and drive sprocket are recreated by metal parts for a realistically weighty driving experience.
Aluminum barrel forms the centerpiece of the accurate depiction of the main gun. Pre-assembled tracks are replicated accurately using durable plastic.All movements are accompanied by sounds emitted from the speaker unit mounted in the rear of the hull. Rear-mounted pre-assembled gearbox features twin Torque-Tuned Type 540 motors for plenty of power. Power transmission mechanics follow those on a full-size tank: one motor controls forward/reverse; the other controls right and left track speed, allowing a realistic range of turns, plus pivoting. Turret rotation is accompanied by realistic sounds, and its speed can be controlled via transmitter.
When firing, the main gun roars and muzzle flashes thanks to an orange LED in the barrel. Gun barrel recoils after firing via turret interior gearbox, and vehicle kickback is also recreated by drive gearbox. About the Type 10 Tank. Officially approved in 2010, the Type 10 reflects the latest military technology and the needs of the modern Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF).
This state-of-the-art vehicle features a L/44 120mm smoothbore main gun that possesses stabilizers, and an automatic target tracking system that functions with tremendous accuracy even when the Type 10 is on the move. Compatibility with the C4I (command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence) system ensures units operate in harmony. A 1,200hp diesel engine and continuously variable transmission secure impressive mobility in conjunction with the hydraulic semi-active suspension. Modular armor sections on the hull and turret provide top level protection and can be removed to allow swift transportation of the Type 10. Deployment commenced in 2012, with units undertaking training exercises as the Japan Ground Self Defense Force looked to phase in the Type 10, in place of the Type 74.
