Extreme AMPHIBIOUS Russian offroad vehicle: Aton-Impulse VIKING-2992

4x4xAMPHIBIOUS, VIKING combines the best of extreme off-road with 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. 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 hazardous areas. With a curb weight of only 1.46 tonnes, riding on giant 1300x600x533 tires, VIKING’s exceptionally low ground pressure enables 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 top speed on-road is 50 mph at 16.8 mpg; off-road at 11.8 mpg. On-road speed is limited by the tires (cost 0 each) which are rated to 50 mph. ATON IMPULSE is bringing out new custom tires rated to 62 mph, as well as bullet

    @raginroadrunner Lol so more small-man syndromers can purchase them and ride them around suburbia? You’re a true American thinker.

    The running gear and engine are all Russian LADA NIVA, and we had them in the UK, not changed for 30 years (usual communism crap).
    They were truly rubbish, HOWEVER on a positive, putting a Jeep 3.0 CRD engine and tranny in this would be a truly awsome combination.

    but in all fairness, you can buy a good condition ww2 tank for £7,000 in the UK, something tells me this will be a touch more

    plus a tank is free of congestion charge in cites, thankyou ross noble!
