8 Most Unusual Soviet MAZ Trucks That You Could Never Imagine

Posted on July 23, 2017 by tim


MAZ – abbreviated from Minsk Auto Zavod (Minsk Auto Factory) was founded in Minsk, Belarussia, USSR in 1954. It’s known for its normal trucks, but besides the regular trucks it was making some of the most interesting and weirdest trucks in the world. How about a 12×12 truck with a helicopter engine and 24 custom electric motors to turn each wheel for example?

1. At first newly founded factory was making wheeled tractors. First one in particular was this MAZ-528 tractor. It was upgraded a few times and the final model was pretty cool: it could move thru swamps, climb steep inclines. It was equipped with different machinery to cut trees, dig trenches, move dirt around and many more.

    MAZ also makes buses. But I suppose that PAZ makes the most buses by volume?
