    DETAILS

    The M1A2 hosts impressive multi-directional and multi-speed controls. The tracks move independently just like a real tank, which allow a multitude of driving styles and manoeuvres including 360-degree spins! There is a realistic suspension system with proper link tracks for getting over the toughest obstacles.

    There is plenty of power from the supplied 7.2v 2000MaH Ni-MH rechargeable battery pack and powerful motor, resulting in playing time of approximately 30 minutes depending on the terrain in which you use it on.

    The automatic reloading airsoft cannon with track recoil action shoots 6 mm plastic pellets as far as 10 meters and can hold 60 rounds at a time. The tank also features a smoke and sound simulator that adds to the fun and realism. The sound system has very realistic sounds including different engine speed sounds and gunfire. As the sound system is 2 channel, you can hear the gunfire over the engine sounds! The cool smoke generator actually produces a small cloud of smoke from the exhaust! It is finished off perfectly with a realistic commander figure.

     

    A Brief History of the M1A2 Abrams

    The M1 Abrams, officially commissioned by the US military in 1980, was designed totally different from previous post-WWII US military tanks. Although fitted with the same 105mm cannon as the M60, the M1 was powered by a gas turbine engine and was fitted with spaced armour. Planned to be commissioned by the US military over a long period, the M1 was designed with future reforms in mind. In 1984, the M1A1 was developed with a 120mm smooth bore cannon, and a further variant the M1A1HA was later developed featuring depleted uranium armour. This then led to the M1A2, which was fitted with Inter-vehicular Information System (IVIS), Commander's Independent Thermal Viewer (CITV) turret and new style vision block. The M1A1HA and the M1A2 both played significant roles in Operation Iraqi Freedom, being deployed by land forces as well as the Marine Corps as they moved toward Baghdad.
