Production started on January 1, 1932, and the factory and marque was titled Nizhegorodsky Avtomobilny Zavod, or NAZ, but also displayed the "Ford" sign. GAZ's first vehicle was the medium-priced Ford Model A, sold as the NAZ-A, and a light truck, the Ford Model AA (NAZ-AA). NAZ-A production commenced in 1932 and lasted until 1936, during which time over 100,000 examples were built......................

North Korea: Kongbang hovercraft
https://news.usni.org/2014/05/08/two-koreas-three-navies

Quote:
Finally there are the Kongbang II/III class hovercraft, capable of transporting 40-plus troops at speeds of 40-50 knots. The most modern ships in the North Korean Peoples Navy, they are equipped with radars, Gatling guns, and surface-to-air missiles. A handful of Kongbang hovercraft are equipped with anti-ship cruise missiles, 57mm cannon and 30mm autocannon, to take on South Korean Navy ships. North Korea has 130 hovercraft, and according to the authoritative KPA Journal, the vast majority are believed the be Kongbang II/III class.

North Korea photoshopping: Why would they want to trick the world? - Telegraph

Quote:
North Korea's suspected photoshopping of images showing an amphibious hovercraft landing has raised a number of tantalising questions about what the regime in Pyongyang is up to.

Quote:
The Atlantic magazine was the first to raise the alarm and since then a number of news agencies have removed the offending image, which shows eight hovercraft, or air-cushion vehicles (ACVs), in various stages of attack. As faked images go, the photo in question is reasonably innocuous: a subsequent, apparently undoctored image shows a total of six ACVs on the beach with troops dismounted and moving inland.

The image is likely of the North Korean Kongbang-class hovercraft.

IHS Jane's believes Pyongyang has about 130 of these in a number of variants, which are based on commercial technology sourced from the British, 1960s-era SR. N6 Winchester-class hovercraft.
