"QUANTUM SHOT" #193


Ballistic Missile Carriers & other super trucks

We covered Russian Army Ballistic Missile Carriers in the previous article. Today we publish some additional images of Soviet Army many-wheeled monsters: most models dating back to Cold War and Brezhnev times, with only a few still in production - most produced by the Minsk Tractor Trailer Factory.

Model 7907: (one of the longest chassis in the world)
Carrying capacity - 200 tons.













Model 7917:





Model 7906:



Model 7904:







Model 7410:





Model 543:





Model 535:



MKZT 79221-1:




Graveyard of the mighty ones

Rusting away in some nameless yard, these dinosaurs still look impressive when parked close to "diminutive" russian cars. Pretty cool props for some rad Cold War game developing. (images source here)



This one seems to be one of the more "collectible" ZIL-3167s. Here is how it looked in its better days:







and when retired:























One spotter found the MAZ 7904 (shown above) in the hangar of the Baikonur Space Center. It is the only surviving truck of this kind. Some Russian and East European forests, I bet, still have inside of them deeply disturbing army machinery, the likes of which the world only saw at Communists May Parades.

It's things like this that make me miss the Soviet Union and the Cold War. America's old enemies always had cooler weapons than us (except for Japan; they were a smidgen outclassed during WWII).

Germany had ballistic missiles, fighter jets and freeways by 1943

The U.S.S.R. had... well, a massive set of balls- and a 100-megaton nuclear bomb (tested at 50-megatons)

Is there any information on the Model 7904 truck? I would greatly appreciate it.
