This is the first time that I can see such a powerful vehicle, the first time that I could ride in the KrAZ truck, and what is more over the obstacles. I think this trip is just in time, it will help lift the spirit of players before with Zarya and Dnieper. As the phrase goes: combat vehicles for morale booster.


I am very glad to visit KrAZ plant. It is an energy boost and inspiration for us. We should understand what hard work is like and give to our fans working in workshops a good game.” The company’s test drivers who showed a high level of professionalism when riding over obstacles were not without presents, too.
