A brief history of U.S M41 Walker Bulldog Tank


The M41 Walker Bulldog was an light tank developed to replace the M24 Chaffee. It was named for General Walton Walker who died in a jeep accident in Korea. On 7 November 1950, the US Ordnance Committee Minutes (OCM) issued item #33476, redesignating the heavy, medium, and light tank classifications to classifications according to armament; the 120mm (heavy) Gun Tanks, 90mm (medium) Gun Tanks, and the 76mm (light) Gun tanks.

 

While the M24 Chaffeee was a successful design, its main gun was not effective enough against well armored opponents. Although the primary mission of a light tank was scouting, Armed Forces wanted one with more powerful armament.

 

The development of the new tank, T-37, began in 1947. The vehicle was designed to be air-transportable, and the desired anti-tank capabilities were provided by installing a long 76 mm gun with an advanced rangefinder. In 1949, with the adoption of a less ambitious rangefinder, the project's designation was changed to T-41.

 

Production started in 1951 at Cadillac's Cleveland Tank Plant, and by 1953 the new tank completely replaced the M24 in the United States Army. Initially it was nicknamed "Little Bulldog", then renamed to "Walker Bulldog" after General Walton Walker, who was killed in a jeep accident in Korea in 1950.

 

Do you know what you are buying?

Basically, there are three different version of Heng Long tanks,

A). Standard tank with Nylon Tracks, Plastic Wheels and Plastic Gear Box (No Smoke generator + No Rx-18 circuit board). Keep in mind, this particular version is still using the older Rx-14 circuit board to keep the cost down. Therefore, you can pick one up easily at less than 60 pounds.

- After you bought the Standard Non Smoking version, and decided you want smoke unit. Unfortunately you CANNOT. That circuit board is not compatible with smoke Unit. It will ended up costing you another 20 pounds.

B). Standard tank with Nylon Tracks, Plastic Wheels and Plastic Gear Box (With Smoke generator + Rx-18 circuit board). This particular version has smoke generator factory installed smoking unit + Rx-18 circuit board. ( You can decide whether or not upgrade to PRO Metal upgrade version with this standard )

C). PRO VERSION with Rx18 circuit, smoking unit as standard equipment + Zinc alloy metal tracks, Zinc alloy sprockets, Ilder Wheels and Zinc alloy metal gear drivetrain. This version will cost you probably more than 120 pounds.

 

Why Heng Long tanks?

It is affordable !!

And Yet, it has almost every function you can find in a 400 GBp plus Tamiya Tiger tank. Or maybe more, it has smoking effect function, and shooting recoil function, which are not exist in Tamiya Tank.

What are improvement of these new Tiger in compare to the older version?

- New Rx-18 Circuit board, no soldering gun required. Just plug & play

- Precisely build in 1/16 Scale, for modelers, it would take some minor additional paint job to enhance the painting effect of the tank

- The tank is capable to move forward, backward, left, right, 360 degrees rotation both clockwise and anti-clockwise

- Turret can move up and down, from left to right at 320 degrees, the tank is equipped with Airsoft gear box, it can shoot BB Bullet up to 25 meters long. ( Ranging from 10m to 25m, depending on battery level & coil, this figure may vary )

 

Detail:

As well as having great detail such as stowage boxes and front and rear machine guns, there are other features, like opening top hatch and also flashing led machine gun light on the front of the tank

Movement:

It has full independent suspension on the wheels, the latest high torque motors, which give an (almost) realistic slow speed control. This is great when you look at all the movement the tank is capable of
It can move forwards, backwards, left and right and cope with climbing slopes/gradients of up to 35 degrees, assisted by the high grip, separate link tracks. The gun barrels elevates and descends.
there is even a working headlight, in case night time manoeuvres are required


Smoke and sound

You also get 'smoke and sound', which means the tank has a smoking engine exhaust (with on/off safety switch), together with individual engine start, idle, run and shut down sounds. There is a volume switch if required
