The Flying KAMAZ

Military drop of kamaz truck 1

In our recent publications we’ve already told, that the first KAMAZ model (Kamsky car factory) was developed by ZIL car factory in the late 70s. Since then KAMAZ trucks have become widely used in the most different fields. For example, it is the most popular truck among common Russian truckers who deliver loads everyday, and it is not surprising, because KAMAZ is the regular winner of Paris – Dakar European race. Just see it in action.

But what’s about Russian militaries? They went even further and made KAMAZ fly.

See the footage below.

    • AFAIK it landed OK, no damages. This is just a final test. Before real parachute, cars were simply dropped from some elevation to emulate shock. GAZ decided to not spend money and did not try that tests at all, KAMAZ has decided that an order for 300 extra cars (plus free ad like this post 🙂 is a good reason.

      • You blind narow minded creature, I feel sorry for you, hope you will be able to see the light one day. But it seems like you dont want it at all.

      • While you reserve every right to like and/or dislike whatever group of people you want, it’s a bit excessive to think of them all as religious zealots trying to convert the world, isn’t it? Not all of them are like that.

        • May I highlight the irony of you telling Europe to join with you, America, when they’re so much more advanced than you? There are quadruple the percentage of atheists in Europe than in America. 🙂

  1. “Paris-Dakar” race does not longer exist with that name, now it´s called Rally Dakar, because begins now from other european cities, like Lisboa (2008). So Paris name cited don´t do nothing here now.

      The race is still known as Paris Dakar around the world, by the way it also has everything to do with Paris founded in 1977, Amaury Sport Organisation (A.S.O.)
