Trucks with CCCP.

As it will turn out in this article, a lot of various types of cars from the East were used in the Polish Army during the communist era. This situation was mainly due to the fact that the Moscow state provided us with specialist equipment already built; radio stations, radio lines, radar stations, aggregates, etc. There were relatively few typical trucks. There were also few vehicles from the construction group; cranes, excavators, etc. Already in 60 years, in the Polish Army there were no tanks and fuel distributors from the East.
