Acceptance Certificate of Zastava-MZKT Project Signed

23 May 2014 saw final state trials of the prototype MZKT-500200 chassis. The system was developed within the framework of the R&D project to make a road-size full sprung cross-country military chassis, dubbed Zastava-MZKT.

On 30 May 2014, the acceptance certificate of the R&D project was signed by a commission presided over by Yuri Krayevsky, head of Goscomvoyenprom’s department for system projects and state programmes.

At a vehicle test range the members of the commission and Goscomvoyenprom could see the MZKT-500200’s top-notch performance when driving across rugged terrain and passing natural obstacles, as well as make a test drive of the new product form the Minsk Wheel Tractor Plant (MZKT).

Having a kerb weight of 5,800 kg and cargo capacity of 3,000 kg, the MZKT-500200 was developed by the order of Goscomvoyenprom to update the vehicle fleet of the Belarusian Border Service, which primarily consists of the GAZ-66 and GAZ-3308 Sadko chassis.

The new vehicle is designed to promptly deliver personnel (up to 21 people) and cargoes with a total weight of three tonnes across any types of roads and terrain.

The Belarusian all-terrain vehicle is powered by the 158-kW (215 hp) YaMZ-53452 turbocharged-and-aftercooled diesel engine from the Yaroslavl Motor Plant and has a mechanical synchromesh gearbox, all-sprung double wishbone suspension, driving axles with central reductors and inter-axle/inter-wheel controlled slip differentials, Kama-401 wheels (size 1,100-400-533) with a tyre pressure control system and a metal frame-panel cabin with a heating system.

The vehicle features a maximum speed of 100 km/h, road clearance of 400 mm, minimum turning radius of up to 10 m, fording depth of 1.8 m and a length of 5,800 mm.

MZKT has begun productionising the chassis. The delivery of first 25 vehicles to the customer is due in 2014.
