    Hello greetings from the Netherlands.
    I do have almost all 1/16 Full option Battle tanks of your range.
    Very interested in your new 1/16 Abrams. Dickie Tamiya Germany has already published a price for the static Abrams M1A2 ( 450 euro’s)
    First: when will this model be available
    second) I presume the drivegears will be the same as the Leopard 2A6, but which DMD will be used ??
    The DMD T-07 of the 2A6 or a new type DMD ??
    please information in this matter would be appreciated very much
    greetings Chris

    Hello Chris,
    to our knowledge there is no information about a RC version out, so unfortunately we cannot give any answer.
    Best regards

    How about the armor accessories like for the 1/35th scale M1A2? How about the APU for the rear, a mine plow, and parts to back date to an M1A1 HA? How about some crew figures, and a driver? I recommend Tamiya do so, it will be an expensive kit, so PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS FOR IT!

    Completely agree with the Captain! The Abrams needs a crew 🙂

    Also, how about update accessories too for a M1A2-Sep-v3-Abrams variant.

    The main gun fitted on the MBT is a M256 120mm smoothbore cannon, which can fire M829A4 advanced kinetic energy and advanced multi-purpose (AMP) rounds to defend armoured vehicles, personnel and low-flying aircraft.The tank features a low-profile (LP) common remotely operated weapon system (CROWS) installed with a 12.7mm machine gun. A 7.62mm M240 machine gun is also mounted coaxially with the main gun.
