the rest cross-country vehicles that are manufactured there: its curb weight is eight tons and this 11-meter giant could carry up even six tons of cargo. I want to note that we are talking about floating cross-country vehicle - other wheeled vehicles of high permeability that could drive through water obstacles, could take one, maximum - two tons aboard. Feel the difference!
