Of course, off-road and cross-country vehicles are important in off-road conditions and on bad roads.
How to achieve high cross-country ability of the vehicle?
The increased cross-country ability of the vehicle is achieved by increasing the number of driving axles, using tires with special grousers, as well as tires with variable air pressure. In bad road conditions, pneumatic rollers, self-locking differentials, winches are used. The clearance and an increase in ground clearance give the big advantage to the car by the bad roads.
All of the above equipment improves the vehicle’s cross-country ability, but on the other hand, it leads to the complication and rise in the cost of the car, an increase in its weight, etc.
