AT-T

Notes: The AT-T is an ancient Soviet artillery tractor, introduced in 1950. It was once used widely throughout the former Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact, the former Yugoslavia, and several former Soviet client states in the Middle East and North Africa. The AT-T is now unlikely to be found in any sort of military service in Russia or the former Warsaw Pact, and would probably be rare even in the former Yugoslavia, Middle East, and North Africa. Most examples would probably be found these days in museums, private collections, and in the hands of collectors.

The AT-T is a decent-sized vehicle (especially in width), and has a roomy cab seating up to four across one row of seats. The tracked suspension does well over broken ground, though a ride in an AT-T is described by some as a miserable experience due to excessive bouncing and jolting. The rear section is normally used to carry ammunition, equipment, and crews for the artillery pieces it normally tows, but it can also carry up to four rows of seats facing forward and seating up to four troops across. The cargo area in either case is either open or covered with bows and a canvas cover. The cab, on the other hand, is fully enclosed. Engine power is abundant (necessary due to the high weight of the AT-T), but the transmission is manual and like many early Soviet military vehicles, a bit obtuse. Towing capacity is likewise large, with the AT-T able to tow up to 25 tons. Early production models were capable of fording up to 0.75 meters, but later examples can ford a full meter of water.

DT-10/DT-30

Notes: This is a series of tracked all-terrain vehicles, the first of which (the DT-10P) appeared in 1982. They have the same basic configuration as do many such vehicles, with a front section carrying the engine and drive components and much of the crew, and a rear section connected by an articulated coupling carrying cargo, more personnel, or specialist equipment (The DT-30 is an exception). All of these vehicles are still in production with the exception of the DT-30, and none of them have ever been exported outside Russia and the former Soviet republics. They are optimized for deep snow and swamps, with very wide rubber tracks that have steel shoes (960mm wide in the case of the DT-10s, and 1100mm for the DT-30s). The roadwheels have independent suspension via torsion bars, and steering is hydraulically assisted. Engines have a preheater for use in very cold climates, and the cab is also heated. All use the same engine, a multifuel development of the engine used in the T-64 main battle tank, with the exception of the more powerful engines used in the DT-10PM and DT-30PM.

The original DT-10P is the smallest of the series. The cab/crew section carries ten crew and passengers, and there are two cargo areas, one behind the engine (which is behind the cab) and one in the rear module. Both load areas may be fitted with bows and a tarpaulin cover. The DT-10P is amphibious. The DT-10PM is an updated version of the DT-10P, with a more powerful engine and a hydromechaincal transmission with a torque converter. It is also amphibious.

As stated above, the DT-30 has a single body supporting a flatbed cargo trailer connected to the main vehicle with a gimbal. It is not amphibious. It is typically used to carry shelter bodies, containerized loads, and items such as rubber fuel bladders or tank bodies for water or fuel. The DT-30P is a more normal version of this series of vehicles, with twin bodies like the DT-10P, and is basically a larger version of the DT-10P. The DT-30P is amphibious, and it has a materiel-handling crane. The DT-30PM is the DT-30Pís counterpart to the DT-10PM, with a more powerful engine and improved transmission.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The DT-10PM and DT-30PM are fairly rare compared to the other vehicles of these series in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Merc 2000 Notes: Some of this series, most notably the DT-10PM, are in use by the UN and by civilian Arctic and Antarctic research outfits, while more, including both the DT-10PM and DT-30PM, are used by those looking for or drilling for oil in the far north reaches of the Earth.

GM-569A

Notes: This new tracked carrier first appeared in reports in the West in 1990, but probably had been in use for a couple of years prior to that. It is basically a new design, but uses drive components of the T-64 main battle tank, but with three possible and increasingly-powerful engines. The transmission is an improved hydromechanical design, with a reduction mechanism, a hydraulic torque converter, an equalizing block, and hydraulically-assisted steering. It is essentially a sophisticated form of automatic transmission, but drivers require special training to properly operate the vehicle and get the best performance out of it; mechanics likewise require special training. When properly employed, high speed and tight turns are possible on difficult terrain, and even pivot turns at maximum speed are possible on hard surfaces. Though the primary engine is a multifuel diesel engine, a small gas turbine is used to power the GM-569Aís two electrical system generators. (A drawback of these systems is the relatively high weight of the vehicle.) The body of the GM-569A has a forward crew/passenger compartment and cargo compartment at the front in a low superstructure; the rear of the vehicle houses the engine in a higher-roofed compartment. The GM-569A has six roadwheels and four return roadwheels on each side. The primary role of the GM-569A in the Russian Army is that of artillery tractor, but it can be used as a general-purpose carrier as well.

A variant of the GM-569A, the GM-5955, is longer, with seven roadwheels on each side. Its primary role in the Russian Army is to carry components of the Tor-M1 SAM system, but it also can be used for general cargo-carrying duties when required.

K-61

Notes: Also known as the GPT, the K-61 replaced the earlier BAV-485 as an amphibious carrier. Primarily meant for use in shallow-water and riverine operations, the K-61 can also be used to carry troops from assault troops to shore. The K-61 is far larger than the BAV-485, and uses a tracked suspension instead of wheels. The engine is partially in front and partially underneath the driver/crew compartment, and the rear has a large cargo/passenger compartment at the rear accessed by a drop ramp. Both the driver/crew compartment and the cargo compartment are normally open, but both may be covered by a tarpaulin cover (the compartments are high enough that bows are not necessary). The cargo/passenger compartment is large enough to allow cargoes as large as a light truck, several 120mm mortars, light field guns, or three AA guns such as a ZPU-2 or ZPU-4. The sides of the compartment have fold-down seats for troops as well. Propulsion in the water is provided by a pair of 3-bladed propellers at the rear of the K-61, under the ramp.

Once common throughout the former Warsaw Pact, Soviet Union, and several client states, the K-61 was almost totally replaced by the PTS series starting in the mid-1960s. Egypt is known to have retained a few, and Vietnam still uses the K-61.

MZKT-79191

Notes: Perhaps one of the largest military trucks anywhere, the MZKT-79191 is a 12x12 vehicle able to switch power off of one of its axles to conserve fuel. The size is phenomenal, with a length of over 16 1/2 meters. It uses a forward control cab and low-pressure tires to help off-road mobility. Most of these gigantic trucks are used by civilian concerns, especially the mining and oil industries, but some are used by the Russian military, primarily to transport IRBM and ICBM-type missiles.

PTS-M

Notes: This is a large amphibious logistics carrier used to carry large loads and offload assault ships. The PTS-M is controlled from a cab at the front of the vehicle. Some of these vehicles have a weapon mount over the commanderís position, but most are unarmed. The cargo area is large, wide, and open-topped. Troops and equipment are loaded and unloaded over the top or by a powered ramp at the rear of the vehicle. Most former Pact members as well as Algeria, Angola, Congo, Cuba, Egypt, India, Iran, Libya, Tanzania, Vietnam, Yemen, and Yugoslavia use the PTS-M series, though in most Pact countries it has been largely replaced by the newer PTS-2.

The PTS-2 is the replacement for the PTS-M. It is basically a PTS-M with a far more powerful engine (derived from that of the T-72 MBT), a revised running gear with 7 roadwheels on each side, NBC protection, and a rear ramp. The PTS-2 is also 500mm longer and wider, and the PTS-2 can carry more cargo.

The series started with the PTS in the mid-1960s, replacing the earlier K-61 in most countries using it. The PTS is essentially similar to the PTS-M is virtually all respects; it is simply built using earlier technology. For game purposes, it is identical to the PTS-M, though examples of the PTS will probably have a greater wear value to start out with.

Ural-377

Notes: This is a 6x4 heavy truck with fair cross-country performance, based upon the Ural-375. Layout is conventional, with engine in front, cab behind it, and a rear cargo bed. The rear cargo area is of wooden construction over steel, and is much longer than the Ural-375's cargo area. Standard equipment includes a cab heater, and the cab has room for the driver and two passengers. The Ural-377D is the winterized version, with an insulated cab, snow tires, and windows with double-paned glass. The Ural-377S is a semi-tractor trailer version of the basic trick; it has no cargo bed, and instead has a fifth wheel for towing the trailers.

Zil-133

Notes: This is a 6x4 version of the Zil-130. The Zill-133 base model has a 220 hp engine, but this was found to be so fuel hungry and prone to overspeeding that it was replaced by one that is much less powerful. By the early 1980s, the Zil-133G1 was the only model in production, and these were later replaced by more modern vehicles.
