Each person who is 180 cm or taller has to hunch up or bend down in this car.

Furthermore, the heater the car is equipped with, is so weak that it warms up just the front two passengers. As for the rest, they have to deal with that cold draft coming from the roof, windows and doors. Don’t forget that apart from soldiers, the UAZ is supposed to transport different equipment, tents, tools, etc.

The Scorpion is 40 cm wider that the UAZ and has an independent suspension. It has a diesel engine and better milage: highway: 18.9 mpg; city: 14 mpg. It has a very smooth ride unlike its Russian companion even when it’s off the road.

    • I think you are correct, the “Scorpion” is most likely a British vehicle. @Osip: A lathe can be used for parts fabrication and engine repair. It can also be used to custom fit certain parts to particular weapons as well. I imagine a lathe and other associated tools would be VERY handy for disaster relief missions.

  1. If it’s being used as a truck, fine! As a trooper’s carrier into the battle field? I’ll rather have one of those tactile truck the guerrilla fighters are using. I mean, the heater is probably useless anyway, and the gun turret and its stand were so ill-conceived. Grown adults will not be easy to get out if the truck should roll over. One battery configuration for russian weather? And please put the engines horizontally instead of straight, it’ll be nice to have something to count on to stop some bullets. Overall, I pledge to have it transfer to the police force. ( without the gun turrets, of course.)
