Taigen Tanks 1/16 Russian JS-2 Metal Edition Infrared 13465
Russian JS-2 Metal Edition
Developed as a successor to the KV series tanks, the IS series tanks were designed to combat the ever powerful and heavily armored German artillery and tanks. Not only highly armored these tanks has plenty of firepower to spare. The IS acronym is the anglicized initialism of Joseph Stalin, hence the IS-2/JS-2 references.
The new JS-2 from Taigen offers some of the best features offered from Taigen and includes things such as a solid metal lower chassis, steel 4:1 gearboxes, V3 electronics system with JS-2 sound card, tons of metal, and an all new clam shell opening system first developed by Daryl Turner on RCUniverse. The battery and internals are now accessed by flipping a switch at the bottom of the tank and propping up the whole upper hull. You can easily change out a battery or do minor maintenance much quicker and easier this way. Switches have been placed under the rear hatch on the upper hull as well, no longer on the bottom of the tank.
