Why I love KRAZ?

  • its most universal trucks in game - all can deliver short/medium/long, had cranes, all trailer and semi. And you can count on them - even 6×4 is capable for all tasks.
  • it looks COOL, sounds cool
  • childhood memories - where were a lot of it in 90s, as civil trucks. Urals, zil 131were mostly military, kamaz in rl doesn't looks so cool, and sounds bad.
  • I'm glad its alive, and alive in Ukraine.

It's very hard to get reliable information about Soviet manufacturers in English, which sucks! I find it interesting how things were done behind the other side of the iron curtain, and how they adapted to the fall of communism and the adoption of capitalism (especially non-russian factories like KrAZ and MAZ). I don't know if you're still about @Stazco I wish I had seen this thread earlier!
