Action Man Iron Knight Tank Description:

The Action Man Iron Knight Tank was part of the 'Task Force' Range, and 'borrowed' from a Hasbro tank sourced from the Far East. It's scale is not close to one sixth, and could have been a third bigger. An attractive battle tank, its turret connects by bayonet fitting to the hull. The barrel slides into the turret, one would assume to fit in the box. The tracks are continuous rubber.

Notes:

The Iron Knight Tank, like the Armoured Car had a very tough blow molded body and would take many knocks. The opening for the turret barely takes Action Man Tank Commander, and it's not until you pair the two that the diminutive scale becomes apparent. Not that it would have mattered to a child at the time! More reading on the Action Man Iron Knight Tank's origins here.
