    Tatra 815

    Tatra T815 is a truck family, produced by Czech company Tatra. It uses the traditional tatra concept of rigid backbone tube and swinging half-axles giving independent suspension. The vehicles are available in 4x4, 6x6, 8x8, 10x8, 10x10, 12x8 and 12x12 variants. There are both air-cooled and liquid-cooled engines available with power ranging from 230–440 kilowatts (310–590 hp). As a successor to Tatra T813 it was originally designed for extreme off-road conditions, while nowadays there are also variants designated for mixed (both off- and on-road) use

    Yes 100% I LOVE them they're so cool, also a Maz 535 with the like 37 liter v12 I just love those eastern European trucks, I don't even care about legality i just want it for off-roading. :rock:

    Yeah well a lot of guys use these in Siberia for extreme logging applications, I wouldn't take anything else if I had to go out into a -40* mud terrain 1,000,000 acre hellish landscape with Siberian tigers and brown bears ready to tear your head off and drive 16 hours just to go 200 miles with 7 tons of logs on my trailer. To me this is the ultimate off-road vehicle. Not to mention all their usage in normal conditions and light duty off-road applications. Air cooled is far simpler than liquid cooled and that is why they do it I think.
