From Russia with trucks [ID18D3]

09 November 2018

Local Indonesian company Rajawali Lintas Kreasi (Hall B, Stand B057) is showing two of the more recent Russian military trucks it is marketing in Indonesia. These are the GAZ Sadko Next (4x4) and the Ural 432007-31 (6x6).

Both of these trucks are in the bonneted configuration rather that the forward control type favoured by some countries. Both have a rear cargo body fitted with bows and a tarpaulin cover.

The GAZ Sadko Next (4x4) has a payload of 2,500kg and is powered by a YMZ-534 V-4 diesel developing 110kW coupled to a manual five-speed transmission and a two-speed transfer case, which gives a maximum road speed of 95km/h. The front and rear suspension consists of semi-elliptical leaf springs and hydraulic double-action shock absorbers.

Steering is power assisted.

The GAZ Sadko Next (4x4) is being marketed in both left-hand drive (LHD) and right-hand drive (RHD) configurations. The front and rear axles are fitted with differential locks and a central tyre inflation system (CTIS) is fitted as standard.

The larger Ural 432007-31 (6x6) has a payload of 6,000kg and is powered by a YMZ-238M2T V-8 diesel developing 176kW, which is coupled to a manual five-speed transmission and a two-speed transfer box, giving a maximum quoted road speed of 95km/h.

The front and rear suspension is of the leaf-type with hydraulic shock absorbers, with the rear also being fully articulated. Like the GAZ Sadko Next, the larger 6x6 vehicle is being marketed in LHD and RHD configurations, is fitted with CTIS as standard for maximum cross-country mobility and has front and rear differential locks.
