        exactly ... they are cunning, but the Uzbeks are more cunning. In general, I remember that Uzbeks always chose KAMAZ trucks. I remember in the winter we were visited by 3 kamazs, watermelons and melons were brought for the New Year, winter crops .. very large ... 25 kg watermelon, and some even more .. and there were similar melons. but they always used only Kamaz. respect this car. in general, my cousins ​​also drove everything on Kamaz trucks ... and praised the car. and they drove from Georgia to Russia, to Irkutsk, to Orenburg, the tangerines were brought for sale. and they always had money, and they didn’t spend money on a car .. pour diesel fuel into the car. change the brakes .. and rarely oil .. and that’s all the expenses. all the rest yourself ... repair that, or replace. and right in the field at least 1 hammer, a pair of keys and a mounting key. here and all the keys. so the Uzbeks knew what they were choosing.

          And I remember Uzbekistan was part of the USSR.
          Maybe for this reason the Uzbeks came to you in Kamaz?

          Dagestanis, for example, also choose Kamaz for transportation and watermelons and tomatoes.
          Now the truth is a lot of cars with the 05 region appeared.
          But these foreign cars are mostly in the years.

          New Kamaz costs more than a ten-year-old foreigner.

          This is such an uneasy choice among the Uzbeks, the Dagestanis, the Ukrainians, and the Kazakhs. and all whose homeland was the USSR.

          For it was not fucking to destroy the country that our ancestors created for centuries.

          And how old are you if you consider Uzbeks foreigners?

            boy, I always considered the Uzbeks Uzbeks, not foreigners, although in fact they are foreigners to me like you yourself .. and my age is not that old ... only 45, but as for the KAMAZs, it’s far from always and not everyone considered him the most. but the Uzbeks always chose them .. I often saw Uzbeks, or rather Koreans and Kazakhs living in Uzbekistan, but only robotic Uzbeks ... give the Kazakh a hat and a briefcase and take his soul from him ... just let me be the boss for a minute .. the same Georgians. pay the Koreans and do whatever you want ... and the Uzbeks were robots, I remember them well. KAMAZ were not the best cars .. simply it was possible to repair them anywhere and with anything .. that’s why the Uzbeks loved them. Yes, and my brothers respected this machine precisely for that. And about ruining the country .. you ask your friends ... I didn’t ruin it. I needed the country of the USSR, but yours ... Russian, Ukrainians and others, was not really needed. I was leaving leaving behind a country .... and you ruined it. therefore, all the questions that you have, you can safely ask your dad, mom, grandfather, grandmother ... and I have a screw .. !!!

          The comfort and bells and whistles of KamAZ trucks are, of course, minimal, but in terms of maintainability they win outright ..
          And the Americans are also funny - the cowboy decided to bargain in a real oriental bazaar .. Well, well ..

            This is what I "like" the Americans - because it is my confidence that the way they live, everyone should live!
            And do not care about tradition and history (Amer and not understand - the history of the country is, God forbid, that would have gained 300 years!).
            Of the stories are Iwo Jima, Okinawa, Pearl Harbor and Private Ryan ..

      When it comes to a fight, the Uzbeks will not only need spare parts, they will definitely not get real help from the United States in such a situation.

        And who received real help from the US in case of a serious situation ..? You do not need to go far, the Kurds were thrown and their "allies" the French .. Draped all throwing hehe
        As for Central Asia, the United States is sleeping and seeing how it would be there to unleash a slaughter under the belly of Russia!
        On the outskirts of the west, it turned out pretty well, it’s not in vain that 5 billion were invested in brainwashing and bribery .. negative
        So the Uzbeks decided everything correctly and secured themselves .. Or they would have sucked in them, like India’s expensive toys for parades .. hehe

    Yes, everything is simple there. In the Western armies in general, but in the USA it’s just an axiom - that a soldier DOES NOT LEARN to repair equipment. The general meaning - you can’t fix it badly damaged in the field, but easily kotsanutaya - somehow somehow the preschooler herself. This leads to the fact that the mattresses in Syria managed to hook it crookedly on the Humvee (hell knows how it worked out?)
    The point is that the Amer-Technique is NOT DISPOSED for repairs in the field. But this is already amba for our conditions. Well, who will set up a car repair shop at a border post? Amers have no such problem - they often have borders across the city.

    Uzbek military chooses Russian Typhoons instead of US MRAPs

    "Typhoon" is a kind of MRAP too.
    Well, in general, "Typhoon" was successful.

    The key point in the acquisition of Typhoons is their assembly on the territory of Uzbekistan, like other Kamaz trucks. With subsequent localization. KAMAZ together with UzAuto TRAILER launched a new assembly line

    Uzbeks are good soldiers.
    Here sergeants, warrant officers or officers are a rarity, and they didn’t especially shine in these qualities, at least in the USSR army. But the soldier from the Uzbek is amazing.
    What you teach, it will do it as a routine and indefatigable: to guard, punctually according to UG and CS, dig a caponier, lay a cable, unfold masts with antennas, introduce cars with trailers, the cooks are cool from them.
    In general, this is a 30-million-strong country — a regional power, a lot depends on it in the CA region, and we would have to start it in the Collective Security Treaty Organization, otherwise a multi-vector approach will usually turn against us.

      The Americans thought that it would be more expensive to return equipment to the United States and they began distributing armored vehicles and other equipment to nearby countries for free, in the hope that they would still buy very expensive parts from the USA.
      But we, too, are able to count money, and having finished the motor resources of American MPs, we bought Russian equipment.
      It really is more unpretentious in operation and cheaper.

    If you take only those characteristics, I am really very surprised. Given the fact that the Americans are constantly fighting on such armored cars as far back as 2001 (Afghanistan) and have passed Iraq, Syria + the equipment that they managed to sell to Saudi Arabia, it turns out also Yemen, in theory they had to eat a dog on this and take into account everything. Either our KAMAZ really turned out to be very successful, or politics / low price / kickbacks. I personally think 3

    A military specialist said that American technology is also of high quality and will continue to be used.
