The Stunningly Cool Soviet Union Military Truck MAZ-537
As known widely, the automotive industry and thus the automotive manufacturing in Soviet Union, the world's sixth largest automotive producer then, started with the establishment of manufacturing plants in the late 1920's.
The manufacturing of strong and well-designed vehicles including trucks, tractors and aircrafts made a great attribution for the Union's economic and military power. The stunningly cool, 12-cylinder 38.9 liter, 525 hp diesel powered-military truck MAZ-537 is the one of the biggest demonstrators of this advanced military power. The MAZ-537 was first designed during the early 1960's to be a heavy load carrier and a strong construction vehicle for the hard-to reach areas of the Union. It entered into service in 1963 and weighs 22 tonnes.
