Extreme AMPHIBIOUS Russian offroad vehicle: Aton-Impulse VIKING-2992
4x4xAMPHIBIOUS, VIKING combines the best of extreme off-road with internal
floatation and water-jet powered amphibious capability.
The ATON IMPULSE VIKING-2992 is a unique special purpose vehicle, ideal for
heavy industry, exploration, arctic use, flood-relief, NGOs, rescue and
emergency services. VIKING is the only amphibious off-road vehicle in the
world to have passed through certification to meet UN/ECE regulations for
unrestricted ON-ROAD USE.
VIKING's world-leading amphibious capabilities are based around its
purpose-designed flotation construction, centrally mounted engine and
powerful water-jet propulsion enable it to ford open water at speeds of up
to 15 km/h. The vehicle's wheels may be optionally engaged while in
amphibious mode, providing unique ability to cope with shallow water and to
transit the challenging littoral zone, where other vehicles commonly become
stuck in soft mud.
Off-road, VIKING is overwhelmingly superior to comparable amphibians, with
cross-country ability akin to tracked vehicles. High maneuverability,
turn-over resistance and endurance provide safety and comfort in remote or
With a curb weight of only 1.46 tonnes, riding on giant 1300x600x533 tires,
VIKING's exceptionally low ground pressure enables it to "float" on soft
snow surfaces and avoids damage to sensitive environments. VIKING has
independent pneumatic front and rear wheel suspension with adjustable
clearance and a tire air-pressure adjustment system operable from the cab
while driving the vehicle.
VIKING's is designed for security and endurance rather than high speed,
which in any case is hazardous on rough terrain. Top speed on-road is 50
mph at 16.8 mpg; off-road at 11.8 mpg, currently limited by the tires (cost
$700 each) speed rating. ATON IMPULSE is bringing out new, higher-speed
rated, custom tires, as well as bullet proof tires. More powerful engine
models will be fitted in future models.
The VIKING-2992 will for the first time be available for international
purchase in late 2012.

2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! Head 2 Head Ep. 46
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman heads to Graz, Austria, the
home of one of the world's toughest off roaders - the Mercedes-Benz
G-Wagen. The last time a G63 appeared on Head 2 Head, it beat out the
all-new and quite excellent Range Rover Supercharged. This time, however,
the G63 faces even stiffer competition — another G63. Of course, this
particular G has an extra axle, because it's the $500,000+ G63 AMG 6x6!
Costing roughly twice as much as the awesome twin-turbo V-12 powered G65, the 6x6 is the ultimate
expression of the Gelandewagen... on paper. But is it actually any good? Is
the 6x6 as awesome as it looks, or is the regular G-Wagen just too well
thought out? And why is the 6-wheeled truck always jumping in the air like
that? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
