Diesel-Engined Vehicles

Diesel powered engines.

All of the Russian post-war tracked vehicles, with the sole exception of the GTSM, are diesel-fuelled. Wheeled armoured vehicles running on diesel were very rare - nevertheless, the Soviets and the Czechoslovaks occasionally produced diesel-powered wheeled armoured vehicles such as the OT-64. More sophisticated in their construction, the diesel engines attract today's collectors not only for their personality and beautiful sound but also for their economical advantage. Like the gasoline versions, diesel-equipped armoured vehicles are multi-fuel - they can even run on rapeseed oil. In the winter, usage of the inbuilt heat-up system which pre-heats the cooling fluid up to 40°C is strongly advised for engine damage prevention.
