SUPER POWERFUL Russian military off road 4WD Trucks
Russian military unveils new off road four wheel drive trucks. A truck
(United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, also called a lorry in
the United Kingdom and Ireland) is a motor vehicle designed to transport
cargo. Trucks vary greatly in size, power, and configuration, with the
smallest being mechanically similar to an automobile. Commercial trucks can
be very large and powerful, and may be configured to mount specialized
equipment, such as in the case of fire trucks and concrete mixers and
Modern trucks are largely powered by diesel engines exclusively, although
small to medium size trucks with gasoline engines exist in the US. In the
European Union, vehicles with a gross combination mass of up to 3,500
kilograms (7,716 lb) are known as light commercial vehicles, and those over
as large goods vehicles.
The oldest truck was built in 1896 by Gottlieb Daimler. The first truck
in the United States was built by Autocar in 1899 and was available with
optional 5 or 8 horsepower motors.
The word "truck" might come from a back-formation of "truckle" with the
meaning "small wheel", "pulley", from Middle English trokell, in turn from
Latin trochlea. Another explanation is that it comes from Latin trochus
with the meaning of "iron hoop". In turn, both go back to Greek trokhos
(τροχός) meaning "wheel" from trekhein (τρέχειν, "to run").
The first known usage of "truck" was in 1611 when it referred to the small
strong wheels on ships' cannon carriages. In its extended usage it came to
refer to carts for carrying heavy loads, a meaning known since 1771. With
the meaning of "motor-powered load carrier", it has been in usage since
1930, shortened from "motor truck", which dates back to 1916.
"Lorry" has a more uncertain origin, but probably has its roots in the rail
transport industry, where the word is known to have been used in 1838 to
refer to a type of truck (a freight car as in British usage, not a bogie as
in the American), specifically a large flat wagon. It probably derives from
the verb lurry (to pull, tug) of uncertain origin. With the meaning of
"self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods" it has been in usage since
Before that, the word "lorry" was used for a sort of big horse-drawn goods
In the United States, Canada, and the Philippines "truck" is usually
reserved for commercial vehicles larger than normal cars, and includes
pickups and other vehicles having an open load bed. In Australia, New
Zealand and South Africa, the word "truck" is mostly reserved for larger
vehicles; in Australia and New Zealand, a pickup truck is usually called a
ute (short for "utility"), while in South Africa it is called a bakkie
(Afrikaans: "small open container"). In the United Kingdom, India,
Malaysia, Singapore, Ireland and Hong Kong lorry is used instead of truck,
but only for the medium and heavy types.
In American English, the word "truck" is often preceded by a word
describing the type of vehicle, such as a "tanker truck". In British
English these would be referred to as a "tanker" or "petrol tanker".
In Australia and New Zealand, the term ute (short for coupé utility) is
used to describe a pickup truck with an open cargo carrying space but a
front similar to a passenger car, and which requires only a passenger car
licence to drive. The concept was developed in 1933 by Lewis Bandt of the
Ford Motor Company in Geelong following a request from a Gippsland farmer's
wife for a vehicle that they could go to church in on Sunday without
getting wet and also use to take the pigs to market on Monday.
In many countries, driving a truck requires a special driving license. The
requirements and limitations vary with each different jurisdiction.
In Australia, a truck driver's license is required for any motor vehicle
with a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) exceeding 4,500 kilograms (9,921 lb). The
motor vehicles classes are further expanded as:
LR: Light rigid: a rigid vehicle with a GVM of more than 4,500 kilograms
(9,921 lb) but not more than 8,000 kilograms (17,637 lb). Any towed trailer
must not weigh more than 9,000 kilograms (19,842 lb) GVM.
MR: Medium rigid: a rigid vehicle with 2 axles and a GVM of more than 8,000
kilograms (17,637 lb). Any towed trailer must not weigh more than 9,000
kilograms (19,842 lb) GVM. Also includes vehicles in class LR.
HR: Heavy Rigid: a rigid vehicle with three or more axles and a GVM of more
than 8,000 kilograms (17,637 lb)). Any towed trailer must not weigh more
than 9,000 kilograms (19,842 lb)) GVM. Also includes articulated buses and
vehicles in class MR.
HC: Heavy Combination, a typical prime mover plus semi-trailer combination.
MC: Multi Combination e.g., B Doubles/road trains.
The Largest Aircraft in The U.S. Military
The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy is a large military transport aircraft built by
Lockheed. It provides the United States Air Force (USAF) with a heavy
intercontinental-range strategic airlift capability, one that can carry
outsize and oversize cargos, including all air-certifiable cargo. The
Galaxy has many similarities to its smaller C-141 Starlifter predecessor,
and the later C-17 Globemaster. The C-5 is among the largest military
aircraft in the world.
The C-5 Galaxy had a complicated development; significant cost overruns
were experienced and Lockheed suffered significant financial difficulties.
Shortly after entering service, fractures in the wings of many aircraft
were discovered and the C-5 fleet were restricted in capability until
corrective work was conducted. The C-5M Super Galaxy is an upgraded version
with new engines and modernized avionics designed to extend its service
life beyond 2040.
The C-5 Galaxy has been operated by USAF since 1969. In that time, it has
been used to support US military operations in all major conflicts
including Vietnam, Iraq, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan; as well as in support
of allies, such as Israel during the Yom Kippur War and NATO operations in
the Gulf War. The C-5 has also been used to distribute humanitarian aid and
disaster relief, and support the US Space Shuttle program run by NASA.
