Vympel Articulated 8x8

Vympel 8x8 of ONG Vympel near Moscow, since more than 25 years, is articulated with positive pitch control and independent suspensions on 8 wheels. A version is built with pendulums for better cross country mobility.  The former version (2016) had leaf springs. This configuration of articulated 8x8 is quite rare. Low pressure tires (0,29 kg/cm²) are chosen instead of tracks because they don't destroy permafrost in summer : heavy loads can be transported even in summer by land, without using a rotorcraft. Payload 2000 kg, 45 km/h, range 585 km, ground clearance 600 mm, 330 hp. https://translate.google.fr/translate?hl=fr&sl=ru&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fspec-technika.ru%2Frubriki_spec-technika%2Fprohodimosti_technika%2F161%2F_item-441,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nz7ax9TnqrA, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bB_O_QUUhJM, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvKQg6Bm6nQ, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frJS5DVQQBA, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdwdHOIi89g, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCLwrkk5Q4M, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClDGX2LN1yc
