Rc Tiger

RC Tiger, the famous vehicle from the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas game has captured the interest of many RC enthusiasts, since its introduction in the game. The RC Tiger was styled after the Tiger-I tank, which was used by German, as an answer to the Soviet T-34s and KV-1s. While Tiger-1 was soon phased out in favour of Tiger-II, the RC Tiger gained popularity, for not just its look, but also for being the only vehicle in the game to retain its original name.

Some of the important things that you need to know about the RC Tiger is that while it is available in all popular RC scales, 1/16th and 1/35th scale are the most popular. It comes equipped with a wide range of features such as light-up warning systems, auto reload bullet systems and even a realistic suspension system. Now many of these features are dependant on the manufacturer, so you will need to first conduct some research about the different manufacturers available, and the features they offer.

Like most complicated RC toys, the RC Tiger also does not come very cheap, particularly if you go in for metal tracks instead of plastic ones, as they are hardier. This is a better choice for enthusiasts who wish to enter their RC Tiger into World War II games or race them with other tanks. A point to note here is that even though it may appear that the tank is using the continuous tracks for propulsion, it actually contains a set of hidden wheels behind the tracks, which are actually static. This becomes particularly evident when you drive you RC Tiger over bumpy terrain.

Some of the things you need to keep in mind while browsing through the different RC Tiger tanks is the turret rotation degree, which is generally 320 degrees, number of movements, such as 7-way or 5-way, the suspension system used in the model and the range of the RC control. The RC Tiger tank comes with a gun system, which uses BB shells, and is known for the realistic tank sound that it makes. Some tanks even produce a remarkable smoke effect.

There are a large number of sources from where you could purchase a RC Tiger tank, with some popular manufacturers including, Mariu, Tamiya and many other Chinese manufacturers. Tamiya in particular is well known for their fully functional tank, which even recoils when it shoots. The tracks are made of durable resin and metal, giving it more strength. It is important to remember that these bullets can cause injury to people or animals, and should not be used to fire at any of the same.

Other sources include the Internet, local hobby stores and even toy stores. The Internet in particular provides a large number of options for buyers, who will appreciate it considering the cost of these tanks. Buying the tank may not be enough, with purchase of its accessories sometimes necessary to enjoy the RC Tiger completely. Good research is a sure shot way to guarantee that you get the most out of your RC Tiger tank.
