Yes, military equipment should not be compared with civil one. Nevertheless, the same characteristics are typical for Ferrari cars (though MAZ does not have speed of 330-350 km/h). But can Ferrari overcome high snow of Belarusian fields with moats about three meters wide or Astrakhan steppes with up and down slopes of 35°? Besides, MAZ can be used in conditions of extreme temperature changes.
