This GAZ-AAA wasåÊa 4x6 that entered production inåÊthe mid-1930s and continued through the early 1940s. This vehicle, like many others, were pressed into wartime service with the Soviet Army in theåÊGreat Patriotic War (World War II) and captured examples were likewise put to work in the Wehrmacht.
