Office of the Defense Ministry, veterans, military leaders and journalists designers about 40 plants showed the practical ability to both own the latest developments and upgraded models, production of which has been launched in the past years, including armored cars "Tiger", "The Bear," modifications "KamAZ" and "Ural". Above 100 units was provided in the static mode, the dynamics (in other words driving) appeared 42 units.
On the difficult track NIITs machine the miracles of patency. Tractors, fire cars, cars for transportation of personnel and cargo quickly moved through the rubble front edges, ditches, climbing steep hills, fording wade (and some swimming and) and successfully came to the finish line. If rapid driving on the highway at light vehicles in the main associate of our readers with foreign cars, then travel with the wind on the road — eternally Russian horse. In the truest sense of the word, specifically for our "iron horses" has always been famous for this, and judging by the results of the show, this glory is not going to give anyone.
In recent years, our producers of motor vehicles for the needs of the Armed Forces was charged with another requirement: To strengthen the protection of personnel from bullets, shrapnel and mines, as read even the Supreme Commander. Yesterday control of the military department failed to ensure that the industry has tried to do this requirement. Were presented to the standards of the protected equipment made "KAMAZ" and "Ural".

The industry has responded to the claims that have been brought to this production department of the Ministry of Defence. And the hunt to place that in the very near future, our soldiers and officers will be able to ride on the most best not only from the standpoint of cross-country vehicles, and for the most reliable. And protected from bullets, mines and fragments are not worse than other motor-vehicle armies in the world.
