The LuAZ-967 (Ukrainian: ЛуАЗ-967) was the Transporter of the Front Line, a small Soviet four-wheel drive amphibious vehicle. Light enough to be air transportable, it had a 400 kg (880 lb) payload over most terrain.

History[edit]

It was designed in 1959 at the Moskvitch MZMA plant, for Russian Airborne Troops (VDV). It was designed for casualty evacuation, munition supply and the carriage of light armaments.

Mass production took place between 1961-1975 at Lutsk automobile plant - LuAZ. It was succeeded by the LuMZ-969В, LuAZ-969, LuAZ-969М and the LuAZ-1302.

Modifications[edit]

  • LuAZ-967A — modernized high-powered engine MeMZ-967А
  • LuAZ-967M — modernized ЛуАЗ-967А with the same engine.
  • Geolog - a special 6-wheel version was built [1].

Mechanical[edit]

The LuAZ 967M had a MeMZ-967A 887 cc (54 cu in) gasoline engine from the ZAZ automobile. An air-cooled, carbureted ohv V4, it developed 37 hp (28 kW) at 2250 rpm.

A 4 speed transmission with 2 ranges gave 8 forward and 2 reverse gears. Unlike many small military vehicles, it was a front wheel drive 4x2, the rear axle was selectively engaged only when 4x4 was needed.

The watertight steel body had 4-wheel independent suspension with coil springs and 285 mm (11 in) of ground clearance. The driving controls were on the truck’s centerline, both the controls and the windshield could be folded down for a lower profile.
