I thought of opening this new sub so we can share pictures of the trucks we see in our homelands that suits Mudrunner.
I'm from Cuba, so most trucks around are from the Soviet era. Lots of Kamaz, Uaz, Ural and so on.
So my idea is, if you're walking down the street and see a truck that's you think would suit to Mudrunner's environment, take a pic and if possible, dig a little bit about it and post it here with the brand, model and every cool info you can find about it. Also, don't forget to mention the country and town if you like.
Unfortunately, I'm no longer living on my homeland, but I'll post some internet pictures now and for the future, I'll ask my friends there to take the shots for me. Also will post about where I am now: Argentina.
This is a Hino truck. It's a Japanese brand and this particular model started to enter Cuba around the 80's. There are used to distribute goods among badly paved towns. It's not suited for heavy offroad but it's capabilities go as far as a Zil-130.
It's interior is plastic and sturdy and it's hella loud inside! (i've been there ) I'm not sure about this, but some of my friends who have driven one of these, say that the gears layout, instead of being in a horizontal fashion, is set vertical. Like, to the right you have first gear, then center>down>left you have second and so on...
It's also used to transport sugar cane from the fields to the factory. Equipped with high walls flatbed and often up to 2 trailers.
Thanks for reading. Can't wait to see how it's where you guys live.
