Tamiya will be announcing a New British 1/16 Tank soon
That’s the only information I have.
If I find anymore information I will let you know.

Given that BAe's UK land vehicles are now tied in with the German company that 'owns' the Leo 2, I suspect that they might have commissioned/sanctioned a Chally 2?

Hope its something else, but that seems the most logical thing to do...

Given the stupidity of all the manufacturers it will be a Cromwell...now that there are two other options for Cromwells on the market.

Interesting. They do have the 1/24 mould.

He said the Cent since Haya is in the middle of making one at the moment. It always seems like the same tanks are made by the big makers or tanks that no one really asked for like the Sheridan.

Just what we have been waiting for. Let’s hope it’s a Centurion.

It will be something modern I feel and not necessarily an mbt, could be a recon tank like the Sheridan

It would be nice to see something new and from the ordinary as most of the 1/16 manufacturers have pretty much exhausted all the mainstream models :think: it beggars belief that tamiya have never continued a line of vehicles such as their kubelwagen considering the demand I think there would be for them ??? :thumbup:

Cheers,Lee.

And sorry, but no one I've every talked to was like...."man I wish Tamiya would make a Sheridan". NO ONE. I personally like the tank, but with how fragile the tracks are, I won't buy one until better tracks come out.

Yes I am aware of the Sheridan but notice I said something like that. Meaning the warrior or something along those lines.

Doesn’t really bother me what they release because I won’t buy it anyway

I would like the famous WW1 “male” with an Elmod board, custom sounds and metal tracks. But I’m crazy like that.

Let’s see if they half-ass it like they did with the type 10.

Churchill... so many variants... altho I'd prefer one from Heng Long... it's easier to afford three Chruchills to convert if you have to pay Heng Long prices...

Tamiya has been fairly balanced in releasing a variety of armour although people tend to buy German armour more.

56001 Sherman 105mm - 1974
56002 Leopard A4 - 1977
56003 Flakpanzer Gepard - 1978
56004 King Tiger (Production Turret) - 1981
56005/6 Sherman 105mm - 1998
56007/8 King Tiger (Porsche Turret) - 1999
56009/10/11 Tiger I - 2000
56012 Kubelwagen - 2000
56013/14 Sherman 105mm - 2001
56015/16 M26 Pershing - 2002
56017/18 King Tiger (Production Turret) - 2002
56019/20 Leopard 2A6 - 2004
56021/22 Panther G - 2007
56023/24 Jagdpanther - 2007
56025/26 Pz IV Ausf. J - 2008
56027/28 KV-1 - 2009
56029/30 KV-2 - 2009
56031/32 Super Sherman - 2010
56033 Tiger I (Premium) - 2011
56034/35 JS-2 - 2013
56036/37 Type 10 - 2015
56038/39 Jagdpanzer IV - 2016
56040/41 M1A2 Abrams - 2017
56042/43 M556 Sheridan - 2019

Place your bets, what 56044/45 is going to be:

- Churchill
- Cromwell
- Comet
- Matilda
- Challenger I/II
- Centurion
- Chieftain
- Firefly

Whether Heng Long releases a Churchill would depend on Tamiya releasing one in the first place, I suspect!
