    MAZ 537 + Trailer WIP

    Hello everyone once again

    A couple of days ago I was reading some of the threads here in the addons discussion section and in the Tatra thread the author kindly gave anyway some of his unfinished model, one of the model that caught my eye in particular is the Maz 537 because there is no vehicle which enables the OPFOR to transport tanks in ArmA 2 at the moment, not that I know of at least. So since my other projects are very close to being completed I decided to finish this quickly.

    History:

    The MAZ-537 is a Soviet army artillery truck designed and developed by MAZ (Minsky Avtomobilny Zavod - Minsk automobile plant),Belarus. The MAZ-357 was designed in the beginning of the 1960's and is capable of towing a trailer with a tank or cargo up to 7 tones or an R-14 intermediate-range ballistic missile.

    Specifications:

    • wheel formula - 8x8
    • carrying capacity - 7,000 kg (15,432 lb)
    • max weight - 18,975 kg (41,833 lb)
    • trailer weight - 15,000 kg (33,069 lb)
    • velocity - 60 km/h (37 mph)
    • dimensions - 8,780 mm (345.7 in)x2,805 mm (110.4 in)x2,915 mm (114.8 in)
    • track width - 2,150 mm (84.6 in)
    • wheel base - 5,750 mm (226.4 in)
    • engine - liquid-cooled diesel
    • power 375 hp (280 kW) (on 1650 rpms)

    Mmmm what's wrong with the red stars? It's a Soviet vehicle. If you take a look at this photograph of a Maz 537, you see that these stars are present on the real thing: http://www.russiantruck.co.uk/images...-070906-05.JPG

    What does CoD have to do with this?

    Martin,
    it's just not valid reference
    it's a photo of british owned vehicle from a 'for sale' collection - and the star has been placed there not by the soviets, t6hat's for sure

    you should try to look for pics of vehicles in actual service

    CoD? He meant the 'overlabeling'... in class-B movies and in CoD'ish productions the symbol is heavily overused. they must think the more red stars the more soviet things are... probably believing that soviet toilet paper had those too....

    (note that only the parade-paintscheme of soviet vehicles has such star)

    Well if you guys don't like the stars so much I'll take them off. Can I at least keep the front one?

    Well, it's up to you after all and not for us or anyone else to decide you're the boss in your playground man

    And remember, even if not 100% true to reality - it'd still be coherent and would go good with good old BIS clichees

    1 2 3 etc, etc..
