Description

This casting has been known by several different names, including Tough Customer, Big Bertha, & Battle Tank. It was introduced as Tough Customer in 1975 as part of the Flying Colors line. In 1982 it was named Battle Tank for one release in the Megaforce Series (not to be confused with a separate casting also named Battle Tank). In 1985 it was renamed to Big Bertha for the Action Command series. It would appear in the mainline in 1996 as Tough Customer, and in 1997 as Big Bertha. It is based on the M60A1 Main Battle Tank.
