The Soviet Union might be in the pages of history, but some of their machines are still present, and kicking ass to this day. Still, you cannot really say that Soviets were known for their magnificent automotive industry. As with most things from that era, the focus was on ruggedness, so it’s no wonder that they can be still found working, even in the toughest of terrains. Furthermore, when you talk about ruggedness, nothing can compare to their huge and mighty trucks.
The one you are about to see bite off more than he can chew. At least that’s how it seems in the first minutes of this video. Truck in question was produced by AMO ZIL, a company with a big tradition that was founded back in 1916. All those years of experience meant that they could make a good and reliable vehicle, like the one from this video. It is named ZIL 131, and it is a 3.5 ton 6×6 truck designed for the army. The main purpose? To pull massive amounts of cargo.
When you have a skilled driver behind the wheel of such a beast, anything is possible. Watch how it handled this epic load without breaking a sweat. You will be amazed!
