    Good luck with registering your OT-90, I'm sure you'll find a way. I've stuck these 'photos up here because a few of us, me included, weren't really sure what sort of MV you've all been talking about.

    In another topic we were talking about Russian vehicles. Many of them are wider than 2,55 - for example Kraz and the huge Maz. It sounds crazy armies are using them on the road, but you can't register them! I'm quite sure you don't do too many miles with your OT-90 (which by the way, is extreme, crazy machine - and I love it!). Why isn't there a special class for special construction vehicles, like ex-military?

    If I ever win a lottery, I buy myself Maz for towing tracked vehicles - width is only 3 meters, own mass 24000kg, 100-200 L/100km consumption... Russians are damn crazy! And you are crazy as well!

    Neil,

    if you had bought my M75 instead, you would have had none of these problems! Rubber pads already fitted, road registered too....... and all for a lot less money!

    Sorry, not trying to make you feel bad.....

    Seeing these pics brings back memories of many hours spent doing AFV recognition and gunnery in Ref to 30mm shooting, as this type of veh was the main tgt that we would be using the Rarden against. Heard and given many fire orders in ref to "APC in open/on ridge".

    Why does the width issue come up? Who is letting on to who about the width? If the width is never mentioned by the owner, how do the DVLA pick up on it. We registered a Scammell Explorer for the first time last August, and the width of it never came into question. If you start volunteering information that isn't requested you are making trouble for youselves.

    They only inspect to verify chassis and engine number. Even then, they don't always inspect even if they say they need to.
