Best post on 8x8s I've found on the web so far.
Needs expanding though with more technical details and input from knowledgable enthusiasts, particularly on the older vehicles, where I've been frustrated by the historic military vehicle websites that seem mostly to be populated by rivet counters as opposed to cross country vehicle engineering enthusiasts.

There is mistake.
Wrong massage "MZKT 8014 10x10 from Belarus"
This is KZKT-8014 10x10 from Russia!
KZKT - automaker from Kurgan (Russia). it has brand RUSSICH.
