* (parenthesis) indicate parameters of GAZ-66-40 that are different from those of GAZ-66.
**GAZ-66-21 differs from the main GAZ-66 model in that it has a bigger platform and stronger frame and shock absorbers.
***GAZ-3531 is a dump-truck with 3-way unload capability. It was made primarily for kolkhoz [farm] use and thus lacks the second fuel tank, winch, and the tires with automatic pressure control system.
****The experimental diesel model (see picture above) was not produced on a large scale, rather, this is just a sample.
*****Experimental GAZ-33 6 X 4 version with 7,000 kg maximum load capacity; it is based on experimental 6 X 6 GAZ-34.
This very successful line of trucks evolved from late model (1959) of GAZ-62. The production of this series of trucks officially ended in 1998, but the Army, its biggest customer, still places orders on these trucks -- their favorite off-road vehicles.
