The “Bird” may freely contact other vehicles, helicopters and even cosmonauts.
The speed when moving on asphalt may reach 75 km/h which is not bad for its weight of nine tons and 150 hp engine.
Amazing, but these vehicles are still in use. The final amphibian model was manufactured 27 years ago but they maintain the vehicles and treat them with care despite the fact that ZiL factory closed many years ago.
I wish I was a cosmonaut to ride the Blue Bird in Russian wilderness!
