   The Shrek One or KrAZ MPV TC is a mine resistant ambush protected vehicle. It was developed by Streit Group of Canada in partnership with AutoKrAZ of Ukraine. It is based on a KrAZ-5233 4x4 all-terrain military truck. This vehicle is being proposed for possible customers both by AvtoKrAZ and Streit Group. Senegal became the first customer of this MRAP vehicle. A total of 10 vehicles were delivered in 2014.

   The main role of the Shrek One is to carry soldiers in combat areas where mine threat is high. Vehicle has a crew of two and accommodates 10 fully-equipped soldiers.

   Armor of this MRAP vehicle provides all-round protection against Soviet 7.62x39 mm armor-piercing ammunition. Vehicle has a V-shaped hull. It withstands blasts equivalent to 14 kg of TNT under any wheel, or 7 kg of TNT anywhere under the hull. Vehicle has an NBC protection system.

   This mine resistant ambush protected vehicle is powered by a YaMZ-238D diesel engine, developing 330 hp. The same engine is used on Ukrainian KrAZ-6322 heavy utility truck and its derivatives. Alternatively Deutz or Cummins diesel engines can be installed. The Shrek One is fitted with a central tyre inflation system and equipped with run-flat tyres. Vehicle carries two spare wheels. It is fitted with a self-recovery winch as standard.

   It is worth noting, that AutoKrAZ recently developed another MRAP vehicle, based on the KrAZ-5322 4x4 military truck. It is Panthera K-10, developed in cooperation with Ares Security Vehicles of United Arab Emirates. It shares a lot of similarities with the Shrek One.
