Flying truck, back-arching all-terrainer: Russia shows off military and special vehicles

On the second day of the Army-2015 expo near Moscow, Russian armed forces and special services are showcasing various ground vehicles, from the terrifying Iskander missile launcher to a gentle-riding GAZ-3344 all-terrain vehicle.

In addition to a rare demonstration of an in-field loading of Iskander missiles, this day’s demonstration also included various armored military vehicles running an obstacle course.

The show also featured a special guest, Eduard Nikolayev, the Paris-Dakar rally champion of 2013 piloting a race-built Kamaz truck.
