The ZiS-42 half-track army tractor was built by the "Zavod imeni Stalinawith" factory from 1940 to 1944, a short production run of only 5,931 vehicles. It shares the cab and front end with the ZiS-5. During war years such amenities as windshield wipers, bumpers and right head light were omitted, and plentiful Russian wood replaced hard to get steel that was needed for tanks and artillery. The ZIS 42 used the ZIS 5 engine until 1943 when it was replaced by the ZIS-16 engine and re-designated the ZIS-42M.
Despite being a half-track, the ZiS-42 remained a cargo truck and was never armored as the American and German half-tracks. The Zis-42 was built in response to the Red Army’s demand for a truck that wouldn’t get bogged down in the Russian snow drifts of winter and the muddy roads of spring.
It did not perform as expected and although it performed well over snow and boggy ground, it was underpowered and the lack of front wheel drive and high fuel consumption, (necessitating a second fuel tank under the seat) let it down under normal conditions and no further attempts to combine wheels and tracks were made.
