The M551 was designed as airdrop capable armor with wading capabilities, a key concept as the U.S. took on the role of global policeman post-WWII. With an aluminum hull and rolled steel turret, it weighed just 15 tons, 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.
Kit includes a electronic control unit where the user can adjust the volume of the sounds, lights, movement and many other settings, allowing full adjustability.
A plethora of lights are recreated, including the turret front searchlight, firing of the main gun is accompanied by an LED flash. They can be operated via transmitter.
The transmission utilizes the power of two brushed motors for foward and reverse movement, allowing the tank to crawl over the roughest of terrain.

Authentic engine and firing sounds were recorded from a full-size vehicle and are coordinated with model actions. A large speaker in the model ensures rich sounds.
