      No, before that we rode on the chaise! For technical geniuses who speak Russian with a dictionary, this means 8x8.

      There weren’t any of these, there were ordinary tractors with ordinary semi-trailers, but green, and this is a completely different technique. Not long ago I saw them on the road. They look AMAZING.

    What is the Russian name "Mustang", otherwise they would be called some sort of "Burlak" and no one would understand anything! If this is a cross-country cargo truck, then carrying ammunition, munitions and explosives from army depots to the division rear, it should have been equipped with its own loading and unloading equipment. But then, again, soldiers with pens at night in the rain should mine boxes? Japanese such four-axle cars in Siberia are completely wound up and each has its own hydraulic forklift and they are popularly called "thieves." He drove up at night in the dark, loaded and rushed off with a wild roar! Well, direct special forces of the rear troops.
