Certainly looks unique and well crafted.
But what is it used for in the Russian military—special forces or liaison?
I’m pretty sure it’s used by SOF as I’ve seen a video of them using quads in Ukraine- not sure if it was this model though. Might also be used in a light utility role too- I think some of these modern military quads can tow small trailers.
I remember eons ago… 80s-90s … the security guys at Edwards AFB had quads (Honda or Kawasaki?) with mounts for M60 mgs for base security patrols. Something akin to this.
Airfix makes a 1/48 Brit Army quad set. 2 quads, two trailers. They used them in Iraq and Afghanistan for logistics support … ammo, water, food hauling.
Bronco, MAK models also make quads (Brit Yamaha 450s) and Live Resin makes the US Polaris and a bunch of loads and riders. Anybody besides Airfix make quads in 1/48?
“AM-1 Tulchanka, ATV with Kalashnikov machinegun and, in some versions, with AGS-30 automatic grenade launcher. Developed for paratrooper units of Russian army, entered service in 2016.”
Thanks for the replies and the photos.
