What should the vehicle, on which the life of the travelers in the Arctic depends, be like? Prior to starting the construction, the expedition members huddle in a workshop to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the first all-terrain vehicles, namely Makar and Shuttle. The new vehicle will be miles better! It is bigger, more reliable, and more comfortable.
The test drive was held in March in the Kara Sea. It was determined which design changes are to be made in the construction of two Burlak all-terrain vehicles which will go to the North Pole.
In spring 2018, after the construction and re-testing, the two Burlaks will reach the starting point, which is the polar station on the Severnaya Zemlya archipelago, and the crew will return home.
