is a general purpose off-road
6x6 vehicle, produced at the Ural Automotive Plant
for use in the Russian army
. Introduced in 1976, it is still in production today. The wheel arrangement for the Ural-4320 was designed for transporting cargo, people and trailers on all types of roads and terrain. It also serves as a launching platform for the BM-21 "Grad"
rocket launcher.The Ural-4320 is a diesel-powered development of the Ural-375D
. The Ural-4320 chassis has good ground clearance, so it is preferred in regions where roads are difficult to traverse due to sand or big rocks. In the proverbial Russian tradition, the Ural-4320 is reliable and easy to repair and maintain. It has civilian uses as a fire truck
, a garbage truck
, or a logging truck
. It is also used for water, oil and gas drilling using the 1BA15
drilling rigs, which are mounted on the chassis.Since the mid-1990s the Ural-4320 and Ural-5557 have had their headlights located on the bumper, and the old attachment points for headlights appear as plastic plugs. However, on special order for the Ministry of Defence
, the factory supplied the truck with a narrow bumper and headlights in the wings, on either side of the grille.
is a 4x4 version.
