Soviet military industry gave the world a lot of interesting developments. Warships, aircraft, submarines, and automotive vehicles are specimens of the talented design of our engineers, who have confirmed its effectiveness. The following discussion focuses on the "Beast" - one of the most bizarre-wheeled vehicles, which, like a mole could be hidden under the ground.

The name of this "monster" crank MAZ-543, which stands for "command-and-staff vehicle" on the MAZ-543. It is a mobile command post, which can be buried in the ground, making a disguised bunker camouflage. For this purpose, a special trench to crank driven and the top covered with earth. According to the norm for this procedure it was 30 minutes away. And the same - to ensure that the car to get out of an earthen captivity. It is carried out with the help of seven hydraulic jacks (four on each side, two rear and one front). They lifted the car, then the driver ran the engine and crank (certainly incredibly impressive) crept out.

Speaking of the engine. Here stands the legendary B-2 - Tank 12-cylinder diesel engine in volume of 38.9 liters capacity of 525 hp and torque of 1400 Nm (!). Various modifications of this engine were completed, many Soviet tanks during the Great Patriotic War - from T-34 to the EC-1. What you need, if you have in mind the car, which will have to travel out of the ground.

Interesting fact: MAZ-543 is widely used for various military projects. In the series it went in 1962, and has since been installed on it: missile systems 9K72 "Elbrus" and 9K76 "Temp-S"; multiple launch rocket system "Smerch" and many others. Also, a large number of different versions were created.

Inside the crank has been equipped with the latest technology of the time (we are talking about the end of the '70s). The area of ​​the internal space is 26 sq. m, which is enough to accommodate 10 people commanders, not counting the driver. Inside the cabin there is a large team table, a lot of specialized equipment, and to observe the enemy allows the periscope.

Inglorious end engineering genius.

Developed this car 15 specialists of Central Research and Testing Institute in the Vladimir region. Unfortunately, a series of this development and did not go, because the then Minister of Defense of the USSR DF Ustinov found it too expensive. The result has been collected only one instance of that participated several times in the Victory Parade was ignominiously thrown to rot in some woods.
