Zetor developed the Crystal series in 1968 (Unified Range 2) The communist government decided that ZTS Tees (earth movers and forestry equipment) should build the UR2 crystals. They didn't do much, i think, they only developed a synchromesh transmission and some new bonnet and cab. (the finishing is still rough)
Even the polish Ursus factory builds Zetor Crystals, the communists spreaded the former Zetor flagship all over Central European factories what werent able to develope any useful by themselves.

I still believe, that if the Crystal always had stay with Zetor, this would be the list [Deere-CNH-MF-Agco-Zetor] in North America.
Perhaps we have to wait 5 or 7 years to see this happen.

The Forterra is a new Zetor design from 1991, after the velvet revolution. I hope one day they will build their own 6 cilinder again. I don't like the fragile SAME engine in the 11641
