When you think of heavy duty machines that are capable of dealing with the roughest terrains imaginable, what is your first though? If you are anything like me, Russian machinery is the immediate association. At the end of the day, their wilderness is one of the toughest in the world, with freezing temperatures for most of the year, steep hills and deep snow where ever you look.
In order to deal with those conditions, Russians have become masters at creating the most insane heavy duty vehicles ever. Their approach might not be too conventional, but can you really argue with results? Just check out this bad boy for example. It’s called ZIL 29061, and behind that unassuming name, we find a very innovative contraption. Despite the hefty weight of 4,400 lbs, this behemoth is capable of developing top speed of 12mph in swamps, 9.9mph in water, and 28mph in snowy conditions.
Doesn’t that sound insane? Still, until you see it in action, you won’t realize just how powerful it is. In order to do so, click on the video below, and enjoy the show!
