8. UAZ 469
All Eastern Bloc countries paid attention to the military, investing large sums of money on equipment and various vehicles. And Soviet Russia was the largest producer of all military vehicles, selling its models to fellow communist countries all around the globe. They introduced the UAZ 469 in 1971 as the successor to the GAZ 69.
It was a simple yet rugged military jeep-like vehicle. Also, they improved the 469, adding a new chassis, live axles in the front and rear, and a more powerful engine in the form of the 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline unit. However, despite various improvements, this was still a crude car. It was extremely durable to withstand the toughest off-road courses and military use. And the 469 was uncomfortable and simple, yet effective. And this off-roader is still in production in Russia and still in use all around the world.
