Named after General Walton Walker who died in a jeep accident in Korea it was an agile and well armed vehicle but it was also noisy, fuel-hungry and although it was meant as a light tank it's weight caused problems with air transport.
Limited combat in the Korean war but was used by the Army Republic of South Vietnam to replace the M24 Chaffee in 1965.
In 1971 the ARVN and US air force commenced operation Lam Son 719. The M41 tanks were used along with 2 airborne battalions and 2 cavalry regiments to penetrate 4 miles into Laos in an operation to disrupt communist supply lines. In this first engagement between North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and ARVN tanks the 17 M41's destroyed 22 communist tanks, 6 T-54's and 16 PT-76's and lost none themselves.

Stunning sound affects. Onboard motor start-up and running sounds. This has a volume control to make it easily adjustable. (This is remotely operated from the controller and the Tank will not operate until the engine has been started by the controller)
Superb gun firing sound with great recoil moment (just like the full size)
Full active independent suspension, just like the full size
Real smoke effect. This Tank comes with an inbuilt smoke generator and can be switched on or off (looks just like a diesel engine running!)
