It is the Taigen metal Sherman:

https://www.rctank.de/METALL-EDITION-24-GHz-TAIGEN-M4A3-76mm-Sherman-1-16-wooden-box-BB-shooting-system-metal-lower-hull-metal-turret-with-360-system-metal-tracks-wheels-etc

Mato Shermans have cast hull and a different main gun, turret is the same as Mato but in metal. I just bought the turret with the 76mm for my "Fury" build. Mated to a Tamiya chassis. Fitting the turret to use Tamiya rotation gear was a messy affair.

Yep, it's a Taigen!

I got it near the initial release straight from Erik @ Taigen as a bare-bones with gearboxes. It came with that slip ring that I found is nearly useless for a Clark board but seems alright if you're into HL or Taigen battling. I just rewired as I usually do for Clark with my traditional birds-nest.

Odd thing is that Taigen gives you the option for 48mm drive shafts.. normal ones are 45 or 55 mm; seems someone discovered this helps keep tracks on. So far so good.

No tensioners to speak of but I can probably make a set fit if I desired. Tension is nice as is. 

Metal tracks, wheels w/ bearings, idlers and sprockets. Rubber wheels. Runs nicely if a bit slow... I have some extra 4535's that might fit in Wink

Asiatam recoil and elevation unit, again super fun to figure out but simple to wire once you get it. Barrel recoil is snappy and HL Strobe unit blind's your enemies. 

Might do some exterior work for fun, I'll see what's laying around... !
