My word, those military trucks are awesome! I mean, look at the size of those beasts. Trust the Russians to come up with something like this.
Clarkson had done a special on those big dump trucks many years ago. One has to climb a ladder to get into it's cabin.
Just yesterday, the navy was shifting some missiles and the convoy passed by my office which is situated on the W. E. Highway. I was amazed by the sheer size of those vehicles. Even a Volvo FH12 would look puny in front of them.

I'm a little lost here.........how does an engine produce peak torque at 0 rpm??(or is it 0.xxxx rpm??) The engine isn't revving at all..... corect me if i'm wong here...so technically it should produce max torque when he engine is shut off??

The thing is...the wheels get power from electric motors and not engine directly. As soon as the electric motor is switched on you get the torque where as in normal IC engine u need the flywheel to start rotating then at appropriate revs u get different torque figures!!!Thats wat i could say in a untechnical language.. If any one can put any more info on this, please do!!

these things are awesome and have tremendous power to move or do things, you can't expect them to give you any thrill in speed BUT instead they will surely make you feel "I OWN THE WORLD"

Default MAZ-7907 & a few other Russian army trucks

MAZ-7907 stands on 24 wheels and all of them are driving ones. This truck is fitted with gas-driven turbine with a total of 1250-horsepower.

The turbine starts the generator up, that sets all those 24 wheels going.
We can say that this is the only one 12-axial all-wheel-drive truck in the world.

And some other trucks..

One of the most showy and powerful tow trucks in the Soviet Union was 6-axial MAZ-7904. Gross weight of the car was 360 tonnes along with carrying capacity of 220 tonnes; they were really remarkable figures for an AWD vehicle back then. Since there was no manufacturing of tyres that could sustain such abnormal loads in the Soviet Union, the government decided to order the tyres from Japan. From then on MAZ 7904 is heeled with Bridgestones 3,1 meters (11 feet) in diameter.

I have seen a MAZ in person in a military display and have a print photo of me standing next to it, will ask my dad to send it over to me. This is driven by two primary controllers, one who stands outside the vehicle and has to be in obstacle free zone and another one who sits inside and controls the payload. The one outside has the primary control of all the axles and drive mech on all tyres.
The payload controller sits at an 'altitude' where he can never be devoid of mobile signals
