IDF Merkava MK IV Upgrade Edition 1/16 Scale Battle Tank - RTR from Heng Long - HLG3958-001

The Merkava (“chariot” in Hebrew) is the primary tank platform of the Israeli Defense Forces. First entering service in 1979, four main variants have been deployed. This beautifully detailed Heng Long RTR RC model replicates the Mark IV version, the first contemporary tank without a loader's hatch in the turret roof, as any opening in the turret roof increases risk of penetration by anti-tank guided missiles. A special drive system is especially designed to reduce track-shedding under the harsh basalt rock conditions of Lebanon and the Golan Heights. More than six hundred of the MK IV variants have been delivered to the IDF.

This Upgrade version features steel gears and plastic tracks for an economical balance between durability and weight, and features an effective and realistic torsion bar suspension. Heng Long has produced RC tanks since 1986, and their models offer the ideal starting point for new customers wanting to explore the exciting universe of RC tanks. All of Motion RC’s Heng Long 1/16 scale tanks utilize the latest TK 7.0 MFCB (Multi-Function Control Board) for outstanding control, performance, playability, and upgrade potential!
