This massive Tamiya R/C replica recreates the shape of the rather unique M551 Sheridan in 1/16 scale. The M551 was designed as airdrop capable armour with wading capabilities, a key concept as the U.S. took on the role of global policeman post-WWII. With an aluminium hull and rolled steel turret, it weighed just 15 tonnes, but had impressive firepower in the shape of the M81 152mm gun/launcher, which could fire standard rounds and MGM-51 Shillelagh missiles. The M551 was in service with active units from 1968 to 1996 and saw action in the jungles of Vietnam.
