Equipment & Vehicles of the Vostok Legion

The initial idea was for a vehicle that could be used to transport a squad of troops to the battlefield protected from enemy fire. However, the open top means the crew is still vulnerable from overhead bursts, and that particular role has been superseded by the Chimera. Variants of this halftrack are produced for specialized purposes, including anti-aircraft guns, rocket launching as well as a version with an infra-red search light used to spot potential targets for associated tanks equipped with infra-red detectors.

There are 17 official variants of the halftrack, and sundry unofficial variants. Each variant is identified by a suffix to the model number.

BoCH Zis V350 Yaroslavl Heavy Armored Transporter / Prime Mover

Initial production vehicles were intended to be used mainly as the tractor for AA FlaK guns and heavy howitzers. Because of its heavy power, it often is used as a multi purpose recovery vehicle.

The vehicle can carry gun crews of up to 12 men in theatre-type seats. Under the seats is storage room for various tools, and the whole vehicle is spacious enough to carry their kit. The rear of the vehicle houses an enclosed compartment for storage of ammunition, though a second ammunition carrier is desirable. The tractor can tow loads up to 8,000 kg (17,600 lb) in weight. Most are fitted with a winch that can pull up to 3450 kg. It has a payload of 1800 kg.
