      Of course, we have “light KamAZs”, tons so under 7-9, but not 1,25.
      In Kamaz, all this garbage can be picked up at a time. Only the task is different.

        and from the “light” you can drive the entire UAZ line ... well, or “tigers”, for example

            I agree ... with all my love for the motherland, I think that UAZ doesn’t compare with the Japanese crying

      Well, they had a very serious war. Here is a pretty interesting movie.

      As I wrote earlier - the infantry there is very ok, unlike the lack of equipment.

      Kamaz there do not sew a sleeve. Well, that is, it is like the Kalashnikovs, a foreign body in the army mechanism. They are sitting on Aroids, sitting on Korean trucks - training, supply, repair, purchase of fuel and lubricants - everything is optimized for this.

    There is plenty to choose from, the cars are not bad and the contract is probably delicious.
