ZIS-42

Pro­duced 1942–1944. ZIS-42 main func­tion was to trail heavy guns and pro­vide trans­porta­tion of var­i­ous car­goes in areas with­out road. It shares front end and cabin with ZIS-5. In 1943 ZIS-5 engine was changed to ZIS-16 (95 hp)engine because the orig­i­nal engine didn’t have enough power.  Data here is based on orig­i­nal ZIS-5 engine.

In 1944 ZIS-43 pro­to­type was built in GAZ fac­tory. It had 37 mm anti air­craft gun fit­ted on ZIS-42 body.

ZIS-42 wasn’t as good as you might expect. It could only go through snow and swamps with­out prob­lems. Also half­tracks were very unre­li­able and engines were under­pow­ered to move the tracks.  Thats prob­a­bly why after that no more half-tracks were designed. Chekc out another half­track GAZ-60 also.
