    looks to have good articulation but there doesn't appear to be any outstanding features.

    yes run of the mill stuff in Russia market and has competition , will look on russian forum about their reputation later.
    Quand le pillage devient un moyen d'existence pour un groupe d'hommes qui vit au sein de la société,
    ce groupe finit par créer pour lui-même tout un système juridique qui autorise le pillage et un code morale qui le glorifie.

    50% axles articulation, 50% chassis flex!

    One really outstanding feature would be an affordable price point!

    How does $80,000 sound . Its at least $50,000 cheaper than the new Iveco 4x4 .

    And as you have pointed out in the past, unlike the Iveco, the brakes would probably work on the GAZ...

    Life is just a series of obstacles preventing you from taking a nap.

    yes, the only thing it its a bit gutless , but I really like it .

    Also unlike the Iveco its easy to maintain and repair and you don't need a dedicated $20,000 dealer level diagnostic tool,(to be fair you can now get them for $5000) Its utilitarian but has no shortage of cup holders. Its wider than the Iveco but the perfect width to tow our new bigger caravan. I would buy the dual cab model but prefer it on the SWB chassis if thats possible.

    Been seriously considering an OKA for some time, but this is definitely worth a look IMO. Russian trucks go ANYWHERE, if youtube is to be believed.
