   The BAZ-6403 prime mover is a member of BAZ Voschina-1 family of heavy military vehicles. The BAZ-6909 is the baseline model. There is a high commonality of components and parts between various vehicles of this family. Development of the Voschina family was funded by the Russian MoD, however the BAZ-6403 tank transporter was developed as a private venture to meet a possible requirement of the Russian Army. It successfully passed trials, but it received no production orders to date.

   The BAZ-6403 has good cross-country mobility. It can operate across rough terrain and in remote areas. Main role of this prime mover is to tow semi-trailers with main battle tanks, self-propelled artillery units and other heavy equipment. Vehicle can carry loads with a maximum weight of 52 t. Gross combination weight is 90 t. It can also tow semi-trailers with fuel tanks and air defense radars and other special equipment.

   A forward control cab accommodates driver and about 5 passengers. So the prime mover can transport the whole crew of the main battle tank or self-propelled artillery unit. Cab can be fitted with add-on armor kit.

   The BAZ-6403 prime mover is fitted with a YaMZ-849 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 500 hp. It seems, that other engines, developing 600 and 650 hp are also available. Engine is located behind the cab. It allowed to reduce height of the vehicle and prevent engine and cooling system from damage and blockage with mud. Vehicle is fitted with a central tyre inflation system. This prime mover can be airlifted by An-22, An-124 or Il-76 transport aircraft.

   The BAZ-6403.01 is a wider and slightly longer vehicle. It is 10.8 m long and has a width of 3.1 m. It is powered by a 17-liter YaMZ-8492.10-0.33 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 470 hp. This vehicle was revealed in 2011.

   There is also a smaller BAZ-6402 prime mover with 6x6 configuration. It is used to tow semi-trailers with S-400 missiles. Some sources report hat a 10x10 prime mover is being developed.

   A civilian version of this 8x8 heavy equipment transporter is available. It is fitted with a less powerful 450 hp engine and has a different cab.
