- Soviet Premier, Joseph Stalin

The ZIS-6 is a Soviet general purpose 64 army cargo truck, a three-axle version of the ZIS-5 two-axle truck. It was built from 1933 until October 1941 at the Moscow Zavod imeni Stalina factory and reached a total production of 21,239.

The robust and reliable base was used for many different bodies, for example as a searchlight truck or mobile workshop. But is best known for its role as the first multiple rocket launcher in July 1941. It was built by the "Compressor" Plant's Design Office during World War II (194145). Very few ZIS-6 trucks survive till today.

During early World War II the ZIS-6 served as the chassis of the original "Stalin Organ" Katyusha multiple rocket launcher, the BM-13. The ZIS-6 also served as the basis for the VVS-RKKA aircraft fueller BZ-ZIS-6.

Historical Account: "The RKKA" - The Workers' and Peasants' Red Army (Raboche-krest'yanskaya Krasnaya armiya: RKKA, frequently shortened in Russian to KA, in English: Red Army) was the army and the air force of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic. and after 1922 the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The army was established immediately after the 1917 October Revolution (Red October or Bolshevik Revolution); in which the Bolsheviks raised an army to oppose the military confederations (especially the combined groups summarized under the preamble White Army) of their adversaries, during the Russian Civil War. Beginning in February 1946, the Red Army, along with the Soviet Navy, embodied the main component of the Soviet Armed Forces; taking the official name "The Soviet Army" (Russian: Советская Армия (СА)/Sovetskaya Armija), until its dissolution in December 1991.
