Russia's new all-terrain ‘Sherp’ vehicle tested its amphibious wheels by driving across ice and into water in the Khanty-Mansiysk Region on Thursday. The all-terrain vehicle can overcome barriers of up to 70cm (2.3 ft) high and reach speeds of up to 45 kmh (28 mph) on land. As for water traveling abilities, it reaches speeds of up to 6 kmh (3.7 mph) thanks to a specially fitted internal design that instantly drains water from its body when it’s submerged.
