In one of its inside courts, Minsk Wheeled Tractors plant has housed so-to-say “Jurassic park” where thousands of iron giants made back in the times of the Cold War dwell there thus far. Standing out in the open there gradually peeling off and rusting they look quite sadly. It is hardly imaginable that a few decades back these rocket-o-saurs were taking aback anyone who saw them with their hugeness, roar of engines and impressive flotation.
2? 4? 24 driving wheels!
Up to our times the plant is engaged in large output of trucks with 10x10, 12x12 and 16x16 wheel arrangements. Moreover, there is one amazing truck that the plant possesses. MAZ-7907 stands on 24 wheels and all of them are driving ones. The car is fitted with gas-driven turbine with a total of 1250-horsepower. The turbine starts generator up that sets all those 24 wheels going.
As long as the car hasn’t been put into service, we can say that this is the only one 12-axial all-wheel-drive truck in the world.
