About the GAZ-67B At the start of WWII, the Russian army did not have a suitable small 4X4 utility vehicle comparableto the American Jeep or German Kubelwagen. The design team at GAZ (Gorkovski AvtomobilnyZavod) was tasked to develop such a vehicle, and eventually the GAZ-67 was born in 1943. Thedesign was heavily influenced by American Jeep models and prototypes received through Lend-Lease, but although the GAZ-67 had better rough terrain performance than the American Jeep,its reliability was far from stellar. Nevertheless, over 90,000 GAZ-67s were produced from1943 until well after the end of WWII, and they served with the in the armed forces of Russia aswell as various other Warsaw Pact countries.
