Design Edit

The Kamaz is a family of Russian-made 6x6 light utility trucks. It uses a conventional layout with a front-mounted engine and a all-metal forward control cab.

Features
There are a total of six more configurations of the Kamaz aside from the baseline troop transport variant. These include a fuel tanker, ammunition transport, field repair vehicle, and a salvager/supply carrier variant.

Mobility
Although slower than its American counterpart, the Kamaz has surprisingly decent off-road handling and can accelerate more quickly compared to the older Ural truck. Due to its higher centre of gravity, it does face a greater risk of a rollover when turning at high speeds.

Crew Capacity
Regardless of variant, the Kamaz always has a capacity of three seats for a crew that consists of a driver and two passengers who sit in the cab alongside the driver.

Variants Edit

  • Utility Truck: Baseline variant. Can transport up to eleven passengers on its rear flatbed. The rear section is covered with a tarpaulin which can hide troops from view (note that the tarpaulin does not provide ballistic protection).
  • Utility Truck (Open): Identical to the baseline transport variant but lacks the tarpaulin cover. Transports the same number of passengers.
  • Utility Truck (Repair): Carries spare parts, tools, and additional components that can repair nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Has only two seats for the driver and a cab passenger.
  • Utility Truck (Ammunition): Visually identical to the Repair variant, but the rear container stores ammunition and ordnance instead. It can re-arm nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Contains the same amount of seats as the Repair variant.
  • Utility Truck (Fuel): Has a large fuel tanker attached to the rear flatbed section. It can refuel nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Contains the same amount of seats as the Repair variant.
  • Utility Truck (Supply):* Visually identical to the Ammunition variant. It will automatically be dispatched from the closest forward base to a nearby town to increase its "supply" value.
  • Utility Truck (Salvage):* Visually identical to the Repair variant but cannot actually repair ground vehicles or aircraft. It will automatically be dispatched from the closest forward base to disassemble destroyed vehicle wrecks on the battlefield.

(*) These variants are completely non-functional in normal gameplay and only work in Capture The Island (CTI) scenarios created with the Warfare module.

Trivia Edit

  • The in-game Kamaz/Utility Truck is based on the "KamAZ-4310" family of 6x6 trucks used by the Russian military in real-life.
