Zil

ZIL (Zavod imeni Likhacheva) is a major Russian truck and heavy equipment manufacturer, which also produced armoured cars for most Soviet leaders, as well as buses, armored fighting vehicles, and aerosans. The company also produces luxury limousines in very small quantities primarily for the Russian government.

The ZIL factory was founded in 1916 as Avtomobilnoe Moskovskoe Obshchestvo (AMO, Russian Автомобильное Московское Общество (АМО) — Moscow Automotive Enterprise). Original plans were to produce Fiat F-15 1.5 ton trucks under license. However, due to the October Revolution and the subsequent Russian Civil War it wasn’t until 1 November 1924 that the first vehicle was produced, the AMO-F-15.
