Some may not consider this art or culture but then isn't mechanical design an art form? Things like these machines are a very necessary part of Russian life considering the terrain ect.

If there are dream jobs in the world also this testing has to be one of them. Although I wouldn't want to have to dig any of these out of the muck.

Their win rate is like 70% as of a few years ago.

Since 2000 they have lost only in 2001 and 2007. I believe they came in second in both of those.

I see Kamaz everywhere in Russia, a few Tatras also and a lot of the GAZ brand. You see a GAZ with broken frames just behind the cab, it's because the drivers don't load them correctly.
