  1. I remember those at Marine Corps Parris Island. They were used to rescue Marine recruits who ran away and wound up getting stuck in the muddy swamp. That was in 1976. The vehicles were old and falling apart and were not really needed anymore since helicopters were replacing them.

  2. Peace be upon you. I beg you and I beg you, my brother, to read my message completely and do not leave it without what you read.

    My brother, the first of my words, I swear by God, the book of God is that I do not lie to you, do not swindle, or deceive that I am a Yemeni girl displaced from Taiz. And he speaks to us and he wants to get us out of the house to the street because we could not pay him rent and he would not go except after we cry and they came back. Talk about him by neighbors and give us time for the end of this week. We find the sustenance of our day and live with me. My mother and my brothers are jealous. Our father is dead, may God have mercy on him, and there is no one with us in this world who stands beside us in this harsh circumstances and I do not have older brothers. I am the eldest in my brothers, but I am a girl. My brother, we have two days deprived of food and I have younger brothers, see how their condition is. I swear by God, my brother, that they went out of the house to the street and cured the neighbors to eat. To land that they closed the door, drove them out, and returned to weep. They die of hunger. No one of their mercy and their gifts would you have made a living, and because no one really helped us, take a minute. I swear by God that we are dying of hunger. O my brother, I am an intruder. Goodness and help me, even if with 500 Yemeni riyals, to ask for the name of my card and send me, do not delay, and God will compensate you with all good, my brother. You are men. If your family heals hungry, you do the impossible in order to secure food for them. For them to expel us on the street, let us be careless or die of hunger. This is my WhatsApp number +967711096080, who wants to help us, for the sake of God, is sending me a WhatsApp message. In which we have compassion, that I and my family ask you, by God, my brother, that you stop with us. Remember the words of God Almighty (and in their money a known right to the questioner and the deprived is the truth of God Almighty) help with us, my brother, may God reward you a thousand good.

  3. ZiL. Soviet-era Russian car manufacturer—came out with this “screw drive vehicle”. ZiL was founded right before the 1918 October Revolution—like within months before—and then spent the next 70 years making limos for Soviet dignitaries. Then they survived a little while after the iron curtain fell, and I think they finally went out of business in 2012. That’s what I can tell you about ZiL.

  4. All military or prototype Russian vehicles seem to squash the drivers or pilots in, its like the tall guy on the Simpsons driving a car everytime. Cool vehicle though.

  5. Oddly when I saw tanks the first time, I actually designed such a wheel system when I was 9 years old, but mine had additional wheels in the middle so it could use it to lift it away or just to be able to drive on the road. With this system you can easily drive up very steep roads and difficult muddy terrains.
