FRICTION POWERED TANK aka SUPER SONIC SPACE TANK X-60 - NOMURA - JAPAN

Blue lithographed tin friction space tank with a small rear control room and a large half-cylinder shaped forward turret. This turret is fitted with a rotating three-barrel gun assembly with spark windows set in the sides. Marked "Super Sonic Space Tank"
The box has Nomura and AHI logos. Two slight color variations are known: the light grey/blue and a darker blue.


Friction action with rotating guns and spark. This uses the low profile pressing that was used for the Space Tank X-4 and the M-101 Tank. A military version of this tank, the ARMY X-60, was also made by Nomura.

This pressing is the same as used for the M-70 Triple Gun Action Tank on sale in December 1962.
