The vehicle GAZ-16 with an aerodynamic was created at the GAZ in 1962 under the supervision of the leading designer A. A. Smolin. The backbone of the idea was teaching an ordinary truck to overcome small impassable marshes with the help of an air cushion.
For this purpose the truck was given the shape capable to hold underneath a pressure zone without any use of guarding. Running along the road car with the speed up to 170km/h (it figures, the engine power is 190hp!), when it met an invincible obstacle for wheels, ran up propellers, 150mm raised itself above bearing surface area and crept across the obstacle with the turtle speed 40km/h.
