Radio-controlled Tiger tank fights up to five others

This VsTank 1/24 scale model of an early version of Germany's Tiger I Tank from WWII is highly realistic and detailed, down to its rubber tracks and growling engine noises. But this $130 radio-controlled model goes way beyond just looking pretty, letting you engage in hotly contested battles with up to five other tank commanders.

When different tanks shoot their infrared cannons at each other, each shot makes the tank jump back in a realistic-looking recoil. If your aim is true and you hit an enemy tank's infrared sensor, that triggers explosive noises and lights. After a tank has been hit six times, it's considered defeated and is disabled. Victory is sweet!

Take the jump for detailed shots of the Tiger I and a video of a model tank battle.
