    Cool vid, used to see them cruising around Korea and rarely in Germany. Most often I saw them on these. My brother drove these for a while, did two tours in Iraq hauling tanks with these trucks. Note the articulating tires on the trailer.

      I'm guessing not a whole lot of trouble in traffic, like idiots pulling out in front of you. "Hey lady, hang up the phone and drive! Never mind........"

          I have never seen the army tank hauler..looks russian/tatra a little.

          not much articulation in the tractors,american give away.

              Note the articulating tires on the trailer.
              Articulating tires/wheels are actually quite common over in Europe. Almost all multi-axle tractor/trailers have them. Oh, another neat thing (to save on fuel and wear) is the ability to raise tires off the ground when the vehicle is driving without a load.

                When I was in East Germany in '85 I saw a dozen or so Russian built T-70's on the highway between Munich and Berlin. That highway had areas that doubled as runways in different areas and had dirt roads parallel to the highway on both sides.
