GR’s weekend giveaway: RC battle tank that shoots BBs

This week, we’d like to say “tanks” to our regular readers with this excellent RC battle tank. As you can see, this 1/16 scale replica of a Russian KV-1 isn’t just some cheap toy. It’s an incredibly expensive and dangerous toy!  Look at the detailed craftsmanship, admire the moveable turret, and check out those treads. This RC tank is the real deal – and even fires BB pellets. Just make sure to be careful when firing, those beads will bounce and ricochet all over the place.

Above: A closer look at the tank, which was provided to us from, developers of the tank-tacular MMO World of Tanks 

To enter, just leave a comment on this article by 9:00 am (Pacific Time) on Monday, June 27. You can read our official contest rules here. US and Canada residents only please. Our apologies to readers from other countries.

The winner will be selected at random and can expect to receive a PM from one of our administrators early next week. Don’t forget to check your inbox on the site to see if you’ve won!

    thats pretty cool, my grandpa had a children's toy from the early 20's (maybe even earlier) that was a small cannon from the civil war. it was about a foot long from the barrel to the base, and about 6 inches wide from wheel to wheel and shot .50 caliber miniballs (what you would shoot out of a muzzle loader) can you swap the barrel at all to make something like that happen? :)
