" this is the first attempt in Minsk special truck, tractor MAZ-528. It has been upgraded many times, and the final product is cool: can go through the swamp, steep slope. Use the same mechanical device, or a bulldozer felling ditch.

1956, and on the basis of the MAZ-528 tractor, the Minsk automobile factory decided to build a truck. This is the first experimental prototype that combines tractors and trucks and uses tractor power systems. MAZ-529 was born like this.

MAZ-529 trailers can be replaced for different uses. It has a very strong pass, beyond the expectations of all the designers.

, the Soviet Union soon noticed the new products of the Minsk automobile factory, so they were asked to customize a cross-country truck. MAZ-535 came into being, the car using 8× 8 chassis, plans for traction guns.

" and even some MAZ-543 was converted into a fire truck, imagine driving a ballistic missile carrier car into a fire truck, how the air. Thanks to the V12 engine equipped with this truck, it can carry 20 tons of load, drag 25 tons of trailers and drive at 60 kilometers per hour.

MAZ-543" played a huge role in the Soviet Union, and became the radar vehicle of the air defense missile system.

, as the volume and weight of the missile increased, the six axle MAZ-547 truck came into being.

MAZ-547" production began in 1970 and ended in 1984. It is also equipped with a V12 engine, but its displacement is relatively small - "only" 25 liters, but because of the advanced technology, the power does not fall, rise to 650 horsepower.
