About the GAZ-67B|
Developed as a small liaison and reconnaissance vehicle along the same lines as the American Jeep, this Russian field car featured a 54 horsepower 3,280cc 4-cylinder engine which allowed it to reach speeds of 90km/h. It proved to be a rugged vehicle with excellent off-road capabilities, and the over 60,000 produced were used by both the Russian forces as well as those of Warsaw Pact countries until well after the end of WWII.
Russian Army Uniforms|
From the Summer of 1943, when the Russian army went on the counter-offensive against the German army after the Battle of Kursk, until the end of the war, the standard uniform for the Russian army was the rubashka field uniform. Tank crew wore overalls on top of it as well.
