Take a look at this video! This is how Russian invention that's called "TROPA" or "the path" in English works. It's very helpful for minesweepers - it creates a "path" or "tropa" inside of the mine field for the troops safely pass thru. The most interesting in this is how it works. The process involves a small rocket. A soldier
ties a hose full of explosives to this rocket and launches it. It flies to the other end of the mine field and lands there with the explosives hose attached. Then the operator explodes this hose and this way a safe way appears inside the mine field! Watch this short video to see it in action!
Today, you are going to see something you have probably never seen before. The idea for such a project for sure could have come from someone from an ex-Soviet country - where the roads are still often cursed by drivers but the luxury and fuel economy trend is already an issue. So how about combining all of this and getting a Smart car, a Smart Fortwo to be
exact, a full time offroad Smart car that can take you deep inside the forests of Ukraine no matter if it's summer and the dirt roads are bad or winter and the dirt roads are snow. Smart Fortwo totally offroad is what we have here, thanks to George, a car enthusiast from Lviv, Ukraine. Let's see inside more photos and even a video!

While the whole world engages in self-driving car mania - with Google self driving cars cruising the streets of San Francisco, Apple self driving cars are rumored to appear in the year 2017 and Audi sport cars go driverless
around a track at high speeds, Russia also has something to offer to the self-driving car business: self driving military KAMAZ trucks made their debut last week. There are pictures and a video inside:
