Actual Tiger I tanks used an automatic engine starter or a manual crank to prevent battery over-discharging in cold areas. Tamiya's R/C Tiger I also features these sounds. Turn on the transmitter first to hear manual crank start sound and turn the receiver first to hear automatic engine sound. For further realism, the model reproduces a manual crank start sound at low temperatures regardless of which unit is switched on first.
The only working King Tiger tank in the world is on display at the Saumur Tank Museum in France. Since the Tiger I used basically the same type of Maybach powerplant, Tamiya designers made their way to France to record all the sounds of this 700hp V12 powerplant, including battery start-up, crank start-up, fly-wheel sound, etc. in order to provide a greater level of enjoyment.
