Kama Automobile Plant (KAMAZ) has been producing a large truck, flatbed tractor KamAZ-5320 for 25 years. It was the first developed truck under the brand name of the plant. The prototype was the ZIL-170, which was produced at the ZIL enterprise until 1975, and after that it was decided to transfer the production to the Kama plant. The first KamAZ trucks rolled off the assembly line in 1976. Subsequently, tractors of other models, dump trucks, trucks and other trucks began to be produced on its basis. All models of the KamAZ family were similar both in structure and details, in many ways they were unified.
