Turn the Terrible Tank

Made by Tomy, 1979.

"The object is to turn the terrible tank toward your opponent by shooting steel balls at the tank. If you time your shot correctly, the tank's scary revolving nose will turn and head toward your opponent. But if you miss, it'll turn on you. That's the way the terrible tank turns, back and forth until one player gets the upper hand. The tank keeps coming relentlessly until it knocks your gun or your opponent's gun out of commission. Requires two "AA" batteries, not included. It's a two-player game that's fun at every turn for tank commanders 6 and up." (from a 1979 brochure).

I bought a vintage Terrible Tank from eBay for my grandson at Christmas (my son, coming up to his 50th birthday, had one when he was 8 and was the best toy he ever had, always remembered), so imagine the disappointment when it arrived broken and missing the ball bearing. Recently I found someone who was able to mend it. However, he does not know what size ball bearings it should have. CAN someone tell me what size ball bearing does it need please?
No idea, sorry!
