Army-2018: enormous quad displayed by Sokol


Sokol displayed an impressive 4x4 quad whose tire dimensions clearly indicate an ability to circulate in extreme conditions, be it snowy, muddy or marshy.

The two-saddle vehicle is equipped with 1200 x 600 low-pressure tires enabling the quad to even float, on top of driving on extremely difficult terrain. The engine is a 1,500 cc, 4-cylinder, developing 110 hp. The quad is equipped with an automatic transmission. The top speed is claimed to be 110km/h. The winch is certainly not a superfluous accessory on such a quad.

The development of such an exceptional quad has cost a significant ampount of money, an investment obviously expected to be cost-efficient. Even if it is a reply to a so far unknown request and if a purely military use of such a vehicle may be questioned, no doubt that security and border forces operating in the numerous extreme off-road conditions of Russia, namely in winter, are targeted with this vehicle. It might behave somehow like the iconic Sherp.

An amphibious trailer adapted to this quad should be developed, as the storage space available on the vehicle itself is rather limited. In the meantime, the weight of the payload on the quad must be rather important.
