The XR311 was Tamiya’s first off-road vehicle and its first kit with a fully independent suspension.
Back in the 70’s, the U.S. Army was looking to replace its aging jeep fleet with something more modern. The XR311 was one of the vehicles being considered. Ultimately, the Humvee won out, but not before Tamiya released an R/C kit. Above is the re-issue released in 2001. It is very faithful to the original design right down to it’s all metal chassis and hard styrene plastic body.
