The new Desert Storm Series from Waltersons/Imex brings the world of RC tanks into small scale 1/72 with an unprecedented level of quality and detail. Each tank is moulded accurately with a high level of detail, then hand airbrushed in an accurate scheme so it really looks the part.
Featuring full proportional control of both the drive system and turret rotation and using working rubberized tracks these mini tanks are fully mobile and are capable of climbing up to 25 degree gradients. The transmitter has a built in speaker for engine sounds as you drive, including engine start-up. You steer with the left hand controller stick and use the right to rotate the turret to take aim at your opponents before they get you. When you have your target in your sights press the left hand shoulder button to fire the machine gun and the right hand shoulder button to fire the cannon. The cannon makes the tank recoil and makes a firing noise as an infrared light is shot at your opponent.
This is where things get interesting.
Equipped with the newly introduced 'Brotherhood Battle System', it is now possible to compete against each other with up to 4 vehicles at the same time. The system allows an accurate evaluation of the match and indicates the status of the tank. Don't let their size fool you, they still have a fitting sound module to create a perfect battle soundscape. Stage mock battles on your desk or on your table at home. Each player gets 5 lives and there is an LED indicator to show how many you have left
Playing times of up to 15 minutes can be achieved & the intelligent binding system allows any tank to be bound to one transmitter.
