Kamaz Truck

Kamaz Truck Haig Barracks Berlin 1991

In 1991/2 members of the British Berlin Infantry Brigade organised humanitarian aid convoys to Smolensk in Russia. Western Group Forces loaned some vehicles and drivers to assist in transporting the aid.
In the 1970s, the Soviets persuaded President Jimmy Carter to let Ford help them set up a plant to produce a modern truck, claiming this would help transport grain from the fields to the cities and alleviate the traditional Soviet grain shortages.
He agreed on the condition that the vehicles would not be used for military purposes. Naturally the Soviets said yes. The first Kamaz trucks western observers saw, were ferrying troops and equipment into Afghanistan. Kamaz engines were also used to upgrade the BTR-60 APC, the modernised version being the BTR-70.

Author, you really believe in what writing? Or indeed, in the style of the Cold War, leading propoganda? Is unlikely to make such a great technical and historical site policy! Even more so when it does not match the truth!
