Now if only they made their hummer in the same scale as all the others. They make the big trucks in 1/12 and the hummer in 1/10.

Or, alternatively, if they made their other trucks in 1/10 scale that would be good...

I'm guessing they made the hummer in a larger scale since it was so much smaller to begin with.

These things aren't that large and 1/10 scale, my fondness for the scale aside is one of the more popular scales for all manner of off and on road trucks,
buggies and cars. I'm sure many of you know far better than I there's a fairly large following for 1/10 scale among those RC enthusiasts as well as a
butt load of after market accessories, add-ons, gizmos and thingamajigs....

(BTW, just on the chance you didn't know...Butt-load is an actual although somewhat dated unit of measurement..Butt-load)

1/12 is the odd ball scale to me & 1/10 does make for an excellent cross-over market. I'm going to build a D110 in SAS use & would hope someone would think outside the box & consider some other models, like a 222. Lots of talk from several suppliers here but so far no action.

One of our local RC club just posted some of his HG collection. Batman looks great in the turret.

Should not have read this thread! OK deal, just ordered an MRAP out of China. Wasn’t going to add any new RC models this year. Any after market esc control boards and sound cards yet? Maybe Tamiya IR compatible? Happy!

No, I think it came from inside that MRAP peanut hauler. I see several of the LCM3 around here being used to carry far more beer than 1/16 tanks.

I'll have to do the same since my son served most of his deployment in Afghanistan manning the turret. Have yet to hear of any aftermarket mods yet but I think you'll be happy with the existing electronics.

Thank you for the tip!

A friend’s son, in 2010 and on, served at Alexander the Great’s Castle patrolling in an MRAP. That combat duty location I thought is really interesting. He survived, is still in and made the military his career.

My son was a Marine in Helmand for far too long for my taste & saw more than enough action there as well as Iraq where he served in both the Green Zone & elsewhere during ISIS' reign in northern Iraq. He only told me after he was out that he was part of a select team who were inserted on Mount Sinjar to protect the Yazidi when the only mention you heard of our involvement was U. S. airstrikes and airdrops of humanitarian aid. As we all know, there's far more to that story than previously reported. He's now an RN happily living in Jacksonville, FL.

Funny, but it was Ian who originally got me interested in RC tanks when we lived in JAX. Bob aka Sevoblast may well remember the first day we met battling in the small park beside his palatial home in Avondale.

Default U.S MILITARY COUGAR 6X6 MRAP RC - HG P602 1/12 Scale Truck.


Just arrived and it is huge!

Saw this informative video today on You Tube. It does a quick over view on the U.S MILITARY COUGAR 6X6 MRAP RC - HG P602 1/12 Scale Truck. Mine just arrived from Hong Kong and is very impressive. Of course, it towers over my Tamiya’s, the Abrams and Leo 2, which is the fore mentioned downside of HG using 1/12 scale, but still very happy with this quality purchase. FYI, the electronics sound light package is very good! Plus the turret rotates.

I kinda wish mfrs would pick and stick. Toys are 1/18, tanks are 1/16, tamiya semi trucks are 1/14, some stuff is made in 1/12 and rc cars and truck scale is 1/10. Sheesh.

would have been nice of the military produced vehicles were done in 1/16 to support the tank hobby , or secondarily in 1/14 to compliment the semi truck hobby.

still, really nice looking MRAP.

Totally agree Rich! HG may have done way better biz, my guess, with a RTR or Kit 1/16 scale RC MRAP modeled using the same designed in RC quality, instead of a high end 1/12 RC truck novelty piece. John

Default U.S MILITARY COUGAR 6X6 MRAP RC - HG P602 1/12 Scale Truck RTR.

Close ups. Impressive RTR for sure. It is huge and almost 15 pounds, yikes!
FYI, it uses a 7.4v Lipo Battery. An interesting MRAP video:

Now that was a few moons ago! That would have been summer if '04 if I remember correctly, perhaps '03.

Yep, it was summer of '03 since its been 16 years living behind TGFW. I have both my eldest sons here next month for T-Day so perhaps we'll crash the upcoming Hooben event scheduled that week. Sadly, all they do here is drive around some lame course, & if we're lucky, it will be outside in a parking lot.

Just scanned this from a kit, adding it to our site as well while I'm at it for everyone for future reference.
