The GAZ-AA cargo truck was produced by Nijegorodsky Avtomobilny Zavod (translated as Nijegorodsky Automobile Plant) starting in 1932, and afterward by Gorkovsky Avtomobilny Zavod (translated as Gorky Automobile Plant). Originally the GAZ-AA truck was a licensed copy of the Ford Model AA truck. The GAZ version had a cargo capacity of 1500 kg.
Production of GAZ-AA totally from Soviet components started in 1933. Wooden and pressboard cabs were used until 1934 after which metal with canvas top cabs were used. A 50-horsepower engine was added in 1938.
Assembly-line manufacturing allowed GAZ-AA/MM trucks to became the most used trucks of the Soviet Union during the prewar period and of the Red Army during WWII. A series of specialized military and civilian modifications were launched on base of GAZ-AA/MM chassis.
Large quantities of GAZ-AA/MM trucks were captured and used by the German army through the end of war.
