Trumpeter Soviet Aerosan RF-8/GAZ-98

The Russians used aerosans for reconnaissance and light raiding in northern areas where their light plywood skis allowed them to move quickly over the deep snow where other heavy vehicles would be unable to move at all.   However they were lightly powered and so could only be used on open country or frozen lakes as they had poor hill climbing ability. The GAZ-98 was developed in 1942 and is powered by a GAZ-M1 truck engine
