All-wheel drive 8×8 MAZ-79111 designed in Belarus feels rather comfortable either on the road or in off-road conditions. It is equipped with a high-speed diesel engine V12 with included angle of cylinders 60°, its power is 650 hp which enables the vehicle to reach the speed of 80km/h.
Yes, military equipment should not be compared with civil one. Nevertheless, the same characteristics are typical for Ferrari cars (though MAZ does not have speed of 330-350 km/h). But can Ferrari overcome high snow of Belarusian fields with moats about three meters wide or Astrakhan steppes with up and down slopes of 35°? Besides, MAZ can be used in conditions of extreme temperature changes.
To travel along such “mud baths” MAZ is equipped with a tire pressure adjustment – it helps to reduce the pressure on the ground. It also has wide section tires, alloy wheels, a torsion bar suspension: you feel like in a boat slowly sailing in the calm sea.
