General information[edit | edit source]
The KamAZ-5350 is a general utility truck that has been in service with the Russian Ground Forces since 2003 when the first vehicles were constructed and delivered. It is a member of the 'Mustang' family of military utility vehicles, which also includes 4x4 and 8x8 variants. With a maximum payload capacity of 6,000 kg and the ability to tow trailers and artillery pieces, the 5350 is a versatile logistics vehicle. The engine is a KamAZ-740 turbocharged V8 diesel producing 260 hp which propels the vehicle to a maximum road speed of 100 km/h. It is also fitted with a cold weather starter that can start the engine at temperatures down to -50 C.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The 5350 is only used by the Russian Ground Forces. As of its introduction, it is currently the fastest logistics truck in the game, edging out the M939 truck of the US Army, its closest comparison, in terms of speed. This fast speed however makes the truck flip over more often on turns, and is therefore less stable.
- This vehicle has no armament and basically no armour. It must either be protected or kept away from the frontline action. The engine and tires can be disabled by small arms fire, meaning a lone infantryman can theoretically disable you with a few bursts into the front grill.
